21 July 2004 -- Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev says Azerbaijan will not agree to proposals on resolving the dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh that call for a loss of Azerbaijani land.
Aliyev made his remarks today while on a visit to northern Azerbaijan. He said Azerbaijan will never make compromises concerning its territorial integrity.
Armenian-backed forces drove Azerbaijan's army out of the ethnic Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh in the early 1990s, in a war that killed 30,000 people and left about one million homeless. A cease-fire was signed in 1994, but no agreement has been reached on the territory's final status.
