A draft resolution on the situation in the occupied Azerbaijani
territories included in the agenda of the UnitedNations General
Assemblys 62nd session will be put on discussion on Friday,
the Foreign Ministry spokesman KhazarIbrahim said. He added that
the Azerbaijani representation in New York was working hard to
achieve adoption of thedocument. The draft resolution, handed out
earlier at the UN GA session to muster international support for it,
urgedunconditional withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the
occupied territories. It said the ongoing occupation ofUpper (Nagorno)
Garabagh and adjacent districts considerably disrupted regional
stability. The paper pointed to theimportance of providing suitable
conditions for the co-existence of the Azerbaijani and Armenian
communities of UpperGarabagh in the future. The UN has already passed
four resolutions on the unconditional pullout of the Armenian forces,
but none of them have been implemented so far.

Azerbaijan and Armenia fought a lengthy war that ended with the
signingof a cease-fire in 1994, but Armenia continues to occupy Upper
Garabagh and seven other Azerbaijani districts. Peacetalks have been
fruitless so far and refugees remain stranded.
