“What Armenia tries to present as a humanitarian matter, is indeed the provocative and irresponsible political campaign to undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan,” said Permanent Representative of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United Nations Yashar Aliyev as he addressed an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss the alleged “humanitarian crisis” created in the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, APA reports.
Categorically rejecting all the unfounded and groundless allegations on “blockade” or “humanitarian crises” propagated by Armenia against Azerbaijan, the Permanent Representative said: “It is Armenia that for almost 30 years had blatantly disregarded the relevant four resolutions of 1993 and series of Presidential Statements of the Security Council that unequivocally demanded full, immediate and unconditional withdrawal of occupying forces from the territory of Azerbaijan. Against this backdrop, Armenia’s actions are nothing but the embodiment of designed political hypocrisy and its appeal to the Security Council is a part of the campaign that it has been pursuing over the months to manipulate and mislead the international community. Had Armenia been sincere in its quest to help it would have been happened immediately. It was indeed within practical reach very recently, days ago, as a result of active involvement of international actors, including some members of the SC. This did not materialize only due to the refusal by Armenia itself.”
