The Jerusalem Post: Aliyev has been continuously undermining peace efforts, strengthening his power through military aggression

The real obstacle to peace in the South Caucasus is the aggressive and expansionist policy of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, The Jerusalem Post said in its “Letters to the Editor” column.

As mentioned, after the end of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Aliyev has been continuously undermining peace efforts, taking all opportunities to seize more Armenian territories. His regime has deployed troops in Armenia itself, considers some parts of Armenia to be “West Azerbaijan” and openly carries out ethnic cleansing. Under the guise of “anti-terrorism”, he displaced more than 120,000 Armenians from their homes in Artsakh.

Aliyev’s rhetoric and actions clearly show that he does not want peace. His regime thrives on instability and hatred, strengthening power through anti-Armenian propaganda and military aggression. Only by holding Azerbaijan accountable for its actions can we hope for lasting peace in the region.
