President Ilham Aliyev has again attempted to give a reasonable look to Azerbaijan’s demand for the provision of the "Zangezur corridor," while not avoiding attributing a potential action—or rather, inaction—to Iran.
"The Zangazur [(Zangezur)]corridor is not directed against anyone; it will bring good to all interested parties," said Aliyev at the international conference, entitled "Along the Middle Corridor: Geopolitics, Security and Economy."
"We discussed the Zangazur corridor during our last conversation with Russian officials. I don't think that Armenia can block that corridor. As for Iran, I think that it will not do it either—considering its interest in regional communication projects. These projects are not directed against anyone; on the contrary, they are only good for all interested parties," said Aliyev.
To note, no document stipulates providing Azerbaijan with a "corridor" through the territory of Armenia. In all documents, the matter is about opening all regional communications. But Azerbaijan insists on the "Zangezur corridor," and, moreover, keeps silent on the matter of opening its communications for the Armenian side.
