Azerbaijan, Baku, 1 March / Trend , A.Huseynbala/
The Armenian delegation will not achieve the adoption of the document on nonuse of force in resolving conflicts during the summer session of the
OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, said the head of the committee of the Azerbaijani Parliament.
"Each country may submit certain documents for discussion during the session of OSCE PA, but Azerbaijan will not allow the adoption of the document to refuse the use of force in resolving conflicts," head of the human rights committee of the
Parliament, member of the Azerbaijani delegation to the OSCE PA Rabiyat Aslanova told Trend on March 1.
Armenian delegation to the OSCE PA intends to present to the summer session of the organization the paper on nonuse of force in resolving conflicts.
Fearing Azerbaijan's statements about the possibility of a military solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict if the conflict fails to be resolved peacefully, Armenia wants to bring this issue to the agenda of the OSCE, said Aslanova.
"This attempt is doomed to failure because the Azerbaijani side opposed the adoption of this document, and we will prove our rightness. If the fair demands of Azerbaijan are not be satisfied by the international organizations, and real assessment is not given to this, the war is not excluded. We shall persist in this matter and will stick to our position in the OSCE and other organizations. International organizations must have the will to resolve the problem, otherwise the option of war be chosen for its solution will," said chairman of the committee.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 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 the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
