Presidential Administration: World community should not be indifferent to Armenia’s aggressive policy towards Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct.14 / Trend, M.Aliyev /
Russia, U.S., France, in general the world community should not be inattentive to Armenia's aggressive policy towards Azerbaijan, Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Political Analysis and Information Provision Department head Elnur Aslanov told journalists on Friday.
"Non-fulfillment of the UN Security Council's four resolutions causes many questions and highlights the existence of double standards in world policy," Aslanov said. "Armenia attempts to preserve status quo by both its policy and avoiding negotiations. However, Azerbaijan's position is that status quo will not be maintained."
He said statements made by the U.S., Russia and France's presidents, as well as the leadership of the European Union emphasize that status quo will not remain.
Aslanov stressed that more pressure should be made on Armenia to make the country to hold rational and constructive position in the region.
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 and the surrounding regions.
