UNITED NATIONS, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Azerbaijan continues to adhere to a peaceful settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Armenia although the talks that have been going on for twenty years yielded no result so far, according to Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Agshin Mekhtiyev.
“The ongoing political process shall be based on the settlement formula that calls to end unlawful occupation of our territories, to restore sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, to return forcefully displaced persons home and ensure peaceful coexistence of Azerbaijanis and Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh region within Azerbaijan,” he told the UN Security Council on Thursday.
He urged to respect human rights and humanitarian law in Nagorno-Karabakh and said Armenia “continues unlawful activities on the occupied territories of Azerbaijan which aim at changing their demographic, social, and cultural character and definitely work to strengthen the current status quo of the occupation.”
Mekhtiyev called on the OSCE Minsk Group “to insist on the necessity of an immediate and unconditional end to all actions, which create major barriers for the settlement of the conflict through negotiations and on the bass of international law.”
Also on Thursday Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev discussed Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in Armenia.
