Armenian diplomat at UN: Restoration of Soviet Azerbaijan's 'territorial integrity' impossible as much as that of Soviet Union

Azerbaijan deliberately turns upside down the root causes of the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) conflict and the consequences of its own aggression, a member of Armenia’s Permanent Representation to the United Nations, Davit Knyazyan said at the 74th session of the UN General Assembly in New York.

“As much as the restoration of the Soviet Union is impossible, the same is true for the restoration of the 'territorial integrity' of Soviet Azerbaijan. We regret that the Azerbaijani party continued its practice of selective references and distortion of the Unites Nations Security Council resolutions,” the diplomat said.

“The resolutions were adopted during the military phase of the conflict and did not lead to immediate cease of hostilities due to the position of Azerbaijan, which made continuous attempts to impose a forceful solution of the conflict.”

The Armenian diplomat’s remarks came in response to Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov's UN speech that “the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan” has led to the loss of the country’s territory and one million refugees, citing the UN resolutions that “criticized Armenia.”

“Today, after 25 years of ceasefire, the primary objective of the resolutions – a complete ceasefire – is yet to be achieved. Azerbaijan refers to single element of the resolution by downplaying all others, such as lift of the blockade or neglecting parties to the conflict referred in the resolutions.

“All the resolutions have clearly recognized Nagorno-Karabakh as party to the conflict. If Azerbaijan is willing to implement the resolutions, it should first and foremost reach authorities of Nagorno-Karabakh in achieving progress in the conflict resolution. The main obstacle towards the conflict resolution is not the position of Armenia or Nagorno-Karabakh, but Azerbaijani policy and actions, which impede the progress in peaceful resolution,” the Armenian diplomat stressed.
