Author of Switzerlandâ€™s Universal Code of Ethic joins Armenia-Azerbaijan Peace Platform
President World Circle oft the Consensus CMDC Iseo, ICEC, STARWIND, METHASYN, author of the Universal Code of Ethic of Switzerland Gustav R Gro has made a statement about joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace.
APA presents the statement:
“Dear Armenian and Azerbaijani friends and all humans of the entire world! After centuries of hatred and wars it is time for wold-wide peace, tolerance and fruitful cooperation, as we cultivate it in the oldest democracy of the world where people of all religions and cultures, speaking many languages, live in peace and freedom together.
That is why I believe in a peaceful solution to the Nagorno Karabakh conflict. I want to express my respect and support to territorial integrity, sovereignty and internationally recognized borders of both Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Moreover, I emphasize the necessity of implementation of resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council, as well as other resolutions and decisions of other international organizations. I would like to note the importance of efforts of OSCE Minsk Group regarding the settlement of the conflict.
I state with regret that the perception of young generations about each other in both countries has formed in the context of war as the result of unresolved conflict, referring to the long tradition of coexistence of the people of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
The Armenia Azerbaijan Platform for Peace is unique opportunity to fast a peace resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Therefore, I make a statement about joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace, which is aimed at a peaceful settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno Karabakh conflict and restoring and preserving peace in South Caucasus.”
For the purposes of contributing to a peaceful settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace was established on December 6, 2016. The Platform is an initiative of the citizens of Azerbaijan and Armenia who wish to contribute to the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
The initiative on the creation of the Platform has generated the interest of the international community as well as attracted the high level of public attention in both conflicting states. A large number of well-known experts highly appreciated this initiative and stressed the very special role of the above-mentioned peacekeeping initiative in the process of the peaceful settlement of the conflict.
The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict entered its modern phase when the Armenian SRR made territorial claims against the Azerbaijani SSR in 1988.
A fierce war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. As a result of the war, Armenian armed forces occupied some 20 percent of Azerbaijani territory which includes Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent districts (Lachin, Kalbajar, Aghdam, Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Gubadli and Zangilan), and over a million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced people.
The military operations finally came to an end when Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in Bishkek in 1994.
Dealing with the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is the OSCE Minsk Group, which was created after the meeting of the CSCE (OSCE after the Budapest summit held in Dec.1994) Ministerial Council in Helsinki on 24 March 1992. The Group’s members include Azerbaijan, Armenia, Russia, the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Belarus, Finland and Sweden.
Besides, the OSCE Minsk Group has a co-chairmanship institution, comprised of Russian, the US and French co-chairs, which began operating in 1996.
Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 of the UN Security Council, which were passed in short intervals in 1993, and other resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly, PACE, OSCE, OIC, and other organizations require Armenia to unconditionally withdraw its troops from Nagorno-Karabakh.
