Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev has issued a stern warning to countries, including India, against supplying defense equipment to its arch-rival, Armenia. Addressing the issue at an event leading up to COP29 in Baku, Aliyev minced no words as he expressed the gravity of the situation.

“It is a matter of our national security. We cannot sit and wait, seeing how France, India, and Greece are weaponizing Armenia against us and doing it openly, demonstratively,” Aliyev remarked, highlighting the perceived threat posed by the militarization of Armenia with foreign support.

Aliyev’s remarks come at a time of heightened tensions in the region, following the recent conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The longstanding territorial dispute escalated into a full-scale war in 2020, resulting in significant loss of life and displacement of civilians.

During the event, Aliyev made it clear that Azerbaijan has conveyed its concerns directly to both Armenia and the countries involved in supplying arms to Armenia. “We openly expressed this position to the Armenian government and to those who want to take care of Armenia now,” Aliyev stated, emphasizing the seriousness with which Azerbaijan views the situation.

Moreover, the Azeri president hinted at the possibility of taking decisive action if the perceived threats to Azerbaijan’s security persist. “We will have to take serious measures if we see a serious threat to us,” Aliyev asserted, signaling the readiness of Azerbaijan to defend its interests and sovereignty.
