Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 29
By Seymur Aliyev - Trend:
The resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict must be based on decisions and resolutions of international organizations, particularly the UN Security Council resolutions must be implemented, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said Oct. 29.
The president made the remarks in Baku at the First Global Forum on Youth Policies.
The president pointed to fact that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe adopted similar decisions.
"The European Parliament, the Council of Europe, the Islamic Cooperation Organization, and others - they all fully support the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan," Aliyev said.
"We see that in some cases the resolutions are implemented within days, in our case, for more than 20 years they still remain on paper," he added.
President Aliyev went on to say that it is necessary to be stronger, more efficient, and work harder to have resolution of the conflict based on international law norms and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
The Azerbaijani president also expressed confidence that the day will come when the Azerbaijani citizens will return back to their native lands in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories.
"We have strong support of the international community not only on this issue, but also in general," President Aliyev said. "The best indicator of that was the election of Azerbaijan as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, and we were members of the council for two years from 2012 to 2013."
"We were selected with the absolute majority from the international community -- 155 countries voted for Azerbaijan," he added.
The president said this was particularly important, because with only over 20 years of independence, Azerbaijan became a member of the international community, and managed to get such a strong support from 155 countries.
