The Nagorno-Karabakh problem is a painful conflict not only for Azerbaijan, but for the whole region, and has existed for more than 30 years, Speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Sahiba Gafarova said at a meeting with the Chairman of the Council of the Russian Federation Valentina Matviyenko, APA's Moscow bureau reports.
According to her, the occupation of 20 percent of Azerbaijani lands and the presence of 1 million refugees is a big problem: “Four UN Security Council resolutions on the settlement of the conflict, documents adopted by NATO, PACE and OSCE remain unimplemented today. Armenia does not consider these international organizations and, unfortunately, the international community does not react adequately to Armenia. Despite the signing of a ceasefire agreement in Bishkek in 1994, the fire didn't cease a single day. As a result of these fires, civilians, the elderly, and children are killed.
The last most dangerous provocation of Armenia took place on July 12 this year. This was very dangerous because these events took place not in Karabakh, but in the Tovuz region of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. As a result, servicemen and civilians were killed and destroyed. These provocations continue today, and according to the Defense Ministry, one Azerbaijani serviceman was killed yesterday. The course of events shows that Armenia is preparing for a major war. As co-chair of the Minsk Group, we hope that Russia will increase its efforts to resolve the conflict as soon as possible."
