UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY TO DISCUSS THE DRAFT RESOLUTION ON NAGORNO KARABAKH
Today the UN will discuss the situation in Nagorno Karabakh: Baku
has presented a draft resolution to the General Assembly, in which it
requests to confirm the borders of its territory and its jurisdiction
over Nagorno Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
"The General Assembly reiterates that no state must recognize as legal
the situation created as a result of the occupation of territories
of the Republic of Azerbaijan and must not support or promote the
maintenance of that situation," the draft resolution reads.
The document underlines the necessity of "immediate, complete and
unconditional withdrawal of all Armenian forces from all the occupied
territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan."
Let us remind that during yesterday’s meeting with journalists RA
Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian described as "self-deluge" the
resolution presented to the UN, since the decisions of the General
Assembly have no legal power. "Neither the place, nor the time
have been chosen correctly. There is no need in such a resolution:
the negotiations on the Karabakh conflict settlement have not yet
exhausted themselves, especially considering that these proceed in
the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group," Vartan Oskanian declared. He
noted that Armenia will pay attention to the vote of those countries,
which approach the question objectively and do not vote simply out
of political convenience or economic interests.
