It is surprisingly that CSTO Secretariat, main duty of which is to coordinate security-aimed army-building issues in member countries, comments on the statement by the ambassador of Azerbaijan, a country which doesn’t attempt against territorial integrity and sovereignty of any country: “The Secretariat distorted the ambassador’s statement that it caused bewilderment, but it was a call for liberation of the territories of Azerbaijan which were recognized at the international level, including by CSTO member countries except Armenia, and occupied as a result of aggressive war”.

The embassy once again stressed the principal position of Azerbaijan for soonest solution to Nagorno Karabakh conflict by the OSCE Minsk Group efforts based on international law and within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

The statement also noted that CSTO supports cooperation with non-member countries and intergovernmental security organizations. “The organization assists the forming of fair and democratic order based on the principles of international law”.

The embassy said Azerbaijan achieved reliable partnership relations with many countries, including some CSTO members for mutual useful cooperation, displaying good and constructive will. “Taking into consideration some noticed points the embassy considers the CSTO Secretariat’s press release exceeding its authority as an attempt to interfere in Azerbaijan’s internal affairs. The embassy hopes that CSTO Secretariat will be more sensible of responsibility while making such kind of statements”.

It should be reminded that Ambassador Bulbuloglu said “it’s time to liberate the occupied lands of Azerbaijan. If Azerbaijan launches war, no one will have the right to interfere, since Azerbaijan will fight in its own territory for liberation of its lands on the basis of UN resolutions”.
CSTO said in a statement that “such approach leads to aggravation of regional situation, and goes counter to OSCE MG efforts and Armenia-Azerbaijan presidential negotiations’ context”.
Note that the Collective Security Treaty Organization was established in 1992 by Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
