Armenia’s yet another appeal to Security Council is blatant violation of UN Charter demands on respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, says Azerbaijani Foreign Minister
Baku, September 22, AZERTAC
“Armenia’s request to the Council is related to the local counter-terror measures taken by Azerbaijan within its sovereign territory, in full compliance with international law, including international humanitarian law. Therefore, Armenia’s yet another appeal to the Security Council is a blatant violation of the UN Charter demands on respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, and non-interference with their internal affairs,” said Azerbaijan’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Jeyhun Bayramov as he addressed the 9422nd Meeting of the UN Security Council.
“Such a reckless abuse of the Council for yet another time is utterly inadmissible, is a serious blow to the authority and reputation of this august body, and must be resolutely rejected.
It is also counter-productive and irrelevant. In fact, when the Council is called for a debate today allegedly due to concerns over the rights and security of ethnic Armenian residents of the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan, the counter-terror measures have already been ceased, and dialogue on the reintegration of ethnic Armenian residents of the Garabagh region of Azerbaijan started in practical terms on the ground,” the FM added.
