BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 22. Armenia's appeal to the Security Council constitutes a violation of the UN Charter's requirements regarding the respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan Jeyhun Bayramov said at the UN Security Council meeting, Trend reports.
"Armenia's appeal to the UТSecurity Council is related to the local counter-terrorism measures that Azerbaijan has taken on its sovereign territory, fully in accordance with international law, including international humanitarian law. Therefore, Armenia's appeal to the Security Council is a clear violation of the UN Charter's requirements regarding the respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states and non-interference in their internal affairs," he said.
Bayramov emphasized that any further misuse of the Security Council in such a irresponsible manner is entirely unacceptable. It undermines the authority of this respected body and must be entirely rejected.
"Today, the Council has been convened to discuss alleged concerns about the rights and security of Armenian residents in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, while counter-terrorism operations in the region have already been suspended, creating an opportunity for the practical reintegration of Armenian residents in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. Today, a long-awaited meeting with representatives of Armenian residents took place in the city of Yevlakh. During the meeting, a special representative appointed by the government of Azerbaijan for contacts with Armenian residents presented a brief overview of the government's plans for reintegration. Issues related to the restoration and operation of infrastructure were also discussed. In the context of discussions on social and humanitarian issues, and at the request of Armenian residents, the supply of fuel for the operation of social facilities is expected," the FM added.
