- Nagorno Garabagh
Statement of Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno Garabagh disseminated as UN document
The statement of the Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno Garabagh region of Azerbaijan Republic related to the military aggression of Armenia against our country has been disseminated as a document of General Assembly and Security Council of the UN, the community told APA.
The document reads as follows:
“We, the internally displaced people from Nagorno Garabagh region and other occupied regions of Azerbaijan Republic have been suffering from Armenian aggression for about 30 years.
As a result of the ethnic cleansing policy launched against us in 1988 Armenia occupied the fifth part of Azerbaijan’s territory. Meanwhile over 700 thousand Azerbaijanis were driven out of their native lands.
During occupation of our lands thousands of Azerbaijanis were savagely killed, a number of civilians were lost. The genocide committed in Khojaly city where 613 civilians including women, children and elder people were killed in one night by the Armenian military units went down in history as a pitch brand while being the largest massacre committed against Azerbaijanis. We state with regret that the perpetrators of these crimes still haven’t drawn the deserved penalty.
The world community including the Security Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization have repeatedly confirmed their respect for inviolability of the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan Republic, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan Republic, their recognition of Nagorno Garabagh as integral part of Azerbaijan Republic and the rights of all Azerbaijani IDPs to return to their native lands.
The Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno Garabagh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan supports peaceful solution of the conflict, which will provide an immediate, full, and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from Nagorno Garabagh and other occupied regions of Azerbaijan, and pave the way for return of Azerbaijani population, expelled by force, to their homes and properties with safety and dignity, restoration, economic development of these territories, and peaceful co-existence of Armenian and Azerbaijani Communities of Nagorno Garabagh with equal rights and without any discrimination: "However it is very difficult to prepare for peace on the background of open invasion policy, conducted by Armenia and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s policy, which is aimed at annexation and reflected itself in his offensive expression of “Garabagh is part of Armenia and dot" too. Furthermore, Armenia even ignores to accept existence of the Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno Garabagh region and to recognize our basic rights and freedoms, and tries to prevent contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian Communities of Nagorno Garabagh region of Azerbaijan Republic by all means. This forms the basis of the invasion policy, conducted by Armenia by occupying Azerbaijan’s territories and is an obvious proof of Armenia’s deep disrespect to human rights."
Armenia by hindering the return of Azerbaijani internally displaced persons (IDPs) to their homes and by making attempts to artificially change the demographic composition on these lands and by taking purposeful steps aimed at change of economic, social and cultural peculiarities, conducts the policy targeting development of the occupied territories into a colony.
We appeal to the world community and call upon them not to turn blind eye on the Armenian aggression having been continuing for 30 years, the sufferings of hundred thousands of Azerbaijanis driven out of their native lands and to ensure implementation of resolutions of Security Council of the United Nations Organization and to increase even more their efforts for solution of Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno Garabagh conflict on the basis of norms and principles of international law stipulated in Helsinki Final Act, within the internationally recognized borders of Azerbaijan, on the basis of full respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan Republic”.
