Stockholm, October 14, AZERTAC
Journalist Antero Eerola has published an article about the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in Iltalehti, one of the leading daily newspapers in Finland.
Eerola says that although the conflict is considered frozen in the West, hostilities may resume at any time. He accuses European countries of indifferent attitude towards the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
He highlights fierce clashes that broke out in the conflict zone in April, particularly sufferings of Azerbaijani civilians living on the line of troops` contact as well as destruction of Azerbaijani residential areas.
Eerola says that despite intensive work of Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) which has special equipment and trained dogs, their work seems to be endless due to enormous number of mines in the region.
The Finnish journalist points to long-running “fruitless” activity of the OSCE Minsk Group which mediates the dispute, saying this causes serious discontent of the Azerbaijani side.
Eerola also emphasizes four UN Security Council resolutions demanding the withdrawal of Armenian military from Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region.
