In terms of relevance and effectiveness, the consideration of the current international situation by the international community at a time when the practical implementation of disarmament and demilitarization has begun, accompanied by direct dialogue between residents of Armenian origin and the official representatives of the central government of Azerbaijan, must align with existing realities. Unilateral and biased, politically limited judgments underlying today’s Security Council discussions, or an approach based on lobbying connections, are entirely unproductive and futile.
Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan, Jeyhun Bayramov, stated this in his address during the United Nations Security Council meeting.
Recalling that expectations from such activities have not been met several times, the Minister noted: “This can only divert attention from the real process of normalization, and it is not in the interest of Azerbaijan and Armenia but certain external forces that continue to exploit existing conflicts for their political purposes.
Therefore, at this crucial moment in the historic opportunity to establish good neighborly relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan after a 30-year-long bloody conflict, the entire international community and the United Nations Security Council, in particular, must adequately recognize the risks and threats associated with Armenia’s destructive actions. It is extremely important to firmly reject Armenia’s attempts to abuse the UN Security Council to conceal its actions that contravene international law.”
