Azerbaijan, Baku, May 21 / Trend M.Aliyev /
NATO does not show activity and the political will to intervene in the Nagorno-Karabakh and Georgian-Abkhazian conflicts in the South Caucasus, Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Social and Political Department Chief Ali Hasanov said at a press-conference today.
He said that today Azerbaijan expects a lot from NATO, the OSCE and other organizations with which it cooperates.
"In particular, Azerbaijan expects a lot from those organizations which have the actual power and influence to ensure implementation of the UN resolutions. But today there is no real result in the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh, because Armenia still continues its destructive position and does not liberate the occupied territories. Today a constructive position on the establishment of peace in Nagorno-Karabakh is not being demonstrated," Hasanov said.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the U.S. - are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
