Baku, Azerbaijan, Mar. 17
By Elchin Mehdiyev – Trend:
Resolutions of the United Nations Security Council on Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be implemented, said President of the Jordan Senate Faisal Al-Fayez at the 5th Global Baku Forum.
The two-day forum titled “The Future of International Relations: Power and Interests” kicked off in Baku on March 16.
The event is also attended by Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis, Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov, Albanian President Bujar Nishani, Montenegrin President Filip Vujanovic, Georgian President Giorgi Margvelashvili, and Saudi Arabian Prince, Chairman of the Board of Directors of King Faisal Centre for Research and Islamic Studies Turki Al-Faisal.
Faisal Al-Fayez noted that the Global Baku Forum has great importance.
There are many problems today in the world, including the Middle East, Syria, Iraq, and ways should be found to solve the crises and the world should become better, he said, adding, “From this point of view, the Global Baku Forum is important.”
“Today, we listened to presidents of various countries. They expressed their views on ways to resolve existing conflicts,” said Faisal Al-Fayez, adding these problems are worrying the whole world.
The Jordan Senate’s president also noted that a part of Azerbaijan’s territories was occupied and the resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council in connection with the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be implemented.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
