Azerbaijan's Aliyev demands Armenian timetable to withdraw from Nagorno-Karabakh

BAKU (Reuters) - Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev demanded on Sunday that Armenia set a timetable for withdrawing from the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding Azeri territories, and said Azerbaijan would not cease military action until that happened.

Aliyev, in a televised address, said Azerbaijan had waited 30 years to recover its lands. “Nagorno-Karabakh is Azeri territory. We must return and we will return,” he said.
