Ombudsman comments on decision of UN International Court of Justice

"The decision on provisional measures adopted by the UN International Court of Justice on 17 November 2023 regarding the application of the International Convention on the Prevention of All Forms of Racial Discrimination has once again refuted Armenia's unfounded claims against Azerbaijan at the legal level," The Ombudsman's Office says, Azernews reports.

It was stated that most of the accusation-oriented opinions put forward against Azerbaijan on various platforms have been rejected by the International Court of Justice, as well as the absence of any factual basis for these opinions was once again confirmed.

Tolerance has a solid foundation in Azerbaijan, rich traditions and deep historical and cultural roots. At the state level, attention is paid to ensuring the rights and freedoms of people of different nationalities and religions living in our country, cultural diversity, rules of coexistence, their development and harmonisation. The Azerbaijani State calls to declare its commitment to the international legal obligations regarding the protection of the rights of the inhabitants of Garabagh of Armenian origin, it is declared at a high level that the security and humanitarian needs of these persons will be guaranteed and practical steps are taken for the reintegration of the inhabitants of Armenian origin.

"As the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Republic of Azerbaijan, we work to ensure the rights and freedoms of everyone living in our country, regardless of their nationality, religion, race, ethnicity or other affiliation.

The issue of ensuring and protecting the rights and freedoms of our citizens of Armenian origin living in Karabakh, as established by the national legislation and international documents, is always in the centre of the Ombudsman's attention.
