Azerbaijani Politicians Consider that Adoption of New UN Resolution
on Nagorno-Karabakh May Attract International Attention

Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend K.Ramazanova / The success of the
discussions in the UN General Assembly with regards to the on-going
conflicts in the GUAM area will depend on the division of power and
on how the representatives of Azerbaijan, Moldova, Georgia, and
Ukraine may mobilize support for resolution, said Azerbaijani
politician, Rasim Musabeyov.

Commenting on the discussions scheduled for 18 September at the UN
General Assembly with regards to the conflict on protracted
conflicts, Musabeyov said that it is important to ensure such
discussions and pass resolutions which provide the basis for

The politician considers that if the discussions take an amorphous
character, it will mean the defeat of the initiators. `It will be
worse, if it is stated that the countries incurred protracted
conflicts need to appear as more peaceful. It is hard that such a
resolution will satisfy us,’ Musabeyov said.

According to politician Rashad Rzakuliyev, adoption of a new
resolution by the UN Security Council regarding Nagorno-Karabakh
conflict would provide stimulus and a new format for the
international community’s understanding of the conflict at the modern
stage. `In my opinion, there are several questions that have been
presented or even fragmentally presented to the authors of the world
political processes, but there is a demand for consolidated, exact,
and clear explanations,’ Rzaguliyev said.

The politician says that answer of the Governments and Parliaments of
the leading countries to the question `is the territory of
Nagorno-Karabakh a disputable problem?’ is simply `NO’. `The issue of
legalizing this territory is not a topic for discussion. The problem
of the status of Nagorno-Karabakh should be resolved within the
territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan,’ Rzaguliyev
said. Touching on the recognition of Armenia as an aggressor country,
the politician said that format of the Armenian-Azerbaijani
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict testifies to the use of certain
technologies by Armenia. The goal of these technologies is to veil
the fact of aggression. `No country in the world or international
institution or geo-political centre has recognized Nagorno-Karabakh
as an independent state. The Governments and Parliaments of the
countries worldwide recognize the fact of Armenian aggression against
Azerbaijan,’ the politician said.

Speaking of the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in the format of the activity of the UNO,
Rzaguliyev said that the answer to this question, based on exact
understanding of previous answers, may and should put an end to the
Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan.
