President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliev stated that the issues surrounding Karabakh should not just be limited to the subject of not starting another military conflict in the region. According to him there are only two options for the conflict resolution of Karabakh: military or negotiations. There is no third way. According to Aliev Azerbaijan has the strongest army in the region. In 2011 its military budget reached almost USD 4.5 bln. Azerbaijanís position is very clear, it wants its territories back, while Armenia claims that Karabakh is an independent entity.
