    Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said that he hopes under Donald Trump leadership, the United States will make a contribution to peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

    BAKU (Sputnik) — Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev on Wednesday congratulated Donald Trump on the US presidential election victory and said he hoped Trump would help the Nagorno-Karabakh settlement efforts.

    Earlier in the day, Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton.

    "I congratulate you on your election as US president. I hope US-Azerbaijani relations will keep successfully developing in future. I hope that under your leadership, the United States will make a contribution to peaceful settlement of the conflict, while being a country co-chair of the OSCE Minsk Group," the Azerbaijani presidential press service quoted Aliyev's congratulatory telegram.
