ln 1993, the UN Security Council adopted Resolutions 822, 853, 874, and 884 and condemned the use of force against Azerbaijan and the occupation of its lands.

In these resolutions, the Security Council expressed its respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan once again, confirmed that the Nagorno-Karabakh region is an integral part of Azerbaijan, and demanded the immediate, full and unconditional withdrawal of occupying forces from all occupied territories.

Along with that, a 76-years old civilian was killed in the Tovuz district of Azerbaijan by the Armenian armed forces’shelling.

The provocative act of the Armenian armed forces should be seen as a continuation of the recent actions and statements of the leadership of aggressor state Armenia, which serve to increase tensions in the region, against the backdrop of socio-economic problems deteriorated further by the widespread of COVID-19 in Armenia, caused by its incompetent performance, and distract attention from the domestic problems in the country.

Armenia, which has reflected its aggressive policy in the country’s national security strategy, openly demonstrates that it aims to seize new positions and increase tensions in the region instead of eliminating the consequences of the conflict and withdrawing its occupying forces from the internationally recognized territories of Azerbaijan.

The provocation by Armenia casts serious doubt on the essence of the negotiations mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs on the settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Armenia is trying to involve third parties in the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict with such provocative actions. Nevertheless, the position of the international community on Armenia’s aggressive policy is quite well known.

“We reiterate that Armenian leadership bears full responsibility for such provocative actions that serve to aggravate the situation,” Mirzayev added. (L/RE1/P2)
