NEW YORK — Armenia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Karen Nazaryan has addressed a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
Calling the Secretary General’s attention to the cases of violation of the ceasefire regime at the line of contact by the Azerbaijani armed forces, the Armenian Ambassador notes, in part, that “such provocative actions contradict the ongoing negotiations in the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group, the statements of the heads of co-chairing countries, the UN Statute and the Helsinki Final Act.”
Karen Nazaryan expresses concern over the fact that the Azerbaijani leadership is spreading Anti-Armenian propaganda, which is becoming an indispensable part of Azerbaijan’s foreign policy. Evidences of this were Azerbaijani President’s speeches at the military parade of July 26, 2011 and the World Congress of Azerbaijanis.
It is noted in the letter that such actions of the Azerbaijani authorities are obvious violations of that country’s international commitments.
“Armenia is committed to continuing the negotiations on the settlement of the Karabakh conflict within the framework of the OSCE Minsk Group, which is an effective and the only legitimate format for mediation. It’s time for Azerbaijan to understand that it should stop hampering the activity of the mediators and concentrate on the negotiation process instead of disseminating groundless and offensive information,” the letter reads.
