Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan surprised with his last week speech at the Brussels Summit of EU leaders and heads of state of the Eastern Partnership, this time denying the existence of well-known UN documents on the resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Sargsyan, being loyal to his pinciple of stating fake statements on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said “the UN has never adopted resolutions on the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue.”
It is worth to remind Mr. President that the four resolutions can be easily found on the Internet and their content is very clear. These documents, adopted in 1993, condemn the occupation of Azerbaijani territories, stress the unacceptability of appropriation of territory by force, confirm the inviolability of the territorial integrity, sovereignty and borders of Azerbaijan and demand the immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian occupation forces from Azerbaijani lands.
Just to underline for President Sargsyan that the very document that the Armenian leadership has been ignoring for almost quarter-century.
Earlier, Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan made a similar provocative statement, saying that implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions is allegedly not on the agenda of Karabakh talks.
This statement is as ridiculous as the one made by Sargsyan, since the Minsk Group, the OSCE’s structure designed to find a peaceful solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, bases its activities on these resolutions of the UN Security Council among other documents.
Both the Armenian president and FM, of course, are well aware of what the four resolutions demand, but as they are contrary to Yerevan’s aggressive occupation policy, the country’s officials come up with unprecedented fairytales with a vain hope that someone will believe in them.
