Azerbaijan calls upon the international community to exert pressure on Armenia to start resolving the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh in accordance with the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council, said Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Elmar Mammadyarov at UNGA.

” We call upon the international community to send a strong message to and exert pressure on Armenia to ensure its full compliance with international law and to immediately and unconditionally start implementation of the relevant UN Security Council resolutions adopted with regard to the settlement ofthe Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict,” Mammadyarov said.

The minister stressed that “new leadership should understand that their promises to the Armenian people to make Armenia economically developed and prosperous state can’t be possible without peace, good neighborly relations and respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of its neighbors.”

“If the new Armenian leadership is calling itself democracy, then they have to act in accordance with the rule of law and democratic values and let those uprooted people return to their homes and withdraw its armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, as it is demanded by the relevant resolutions of the Security Council and other international organizations”, added Mammadyarov.

Azerbaijan, according to the minister, sincerely believes that there is no alternative to peace, stability and mutually beneficial regional cooperation and is the most interested party in the earliest political settlement of the conflict.
