The Unrepresented United Nations Organisation (UUN) approved, through its Secretary General Giovanni Caporaso Gottlieb, measures for resolving the conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan, where reinforced monitoring by members of the mission of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) of the line of separation, northeast of the town of Talish, is underlined.
According to the (UUN), this step is the (OSCE)’s first monitoring of the zone after the recent escalation of the conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan, which has already caused numerous civilian and military deaths. It is specified that, from the positions of the Defense Army of Nagorno Karabakh the monitoring will be carried out by the personal representative of the OSCE President, Ambassador Andrzej Kasprzyk, and by two other highly placed representatives of the organisation. At present, Azerbaijan insists on recuperating its territorial integrity, while Armenia defends the interests of the self-proclaimed Republic of Nagorno Karabakh, which isn’t part of the negotiations. The current Republic of Nagorno Karabakh, an enclave populated mostly by Armenians, decided to gain independence in 1988 from the Soviet Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan, and after the escalation of the hostilities from 1992 to 1994, Baku’ lost control over Karabakh and seven adjacent districts.
Meanwhile, the Unrepresented United Nations and its High Commissioner, Giovani Caporaso Gottlieb, welcomed what was expressed by the Russian Chancellor, Sergei Lavrov, during the meeting with his Armenian counterpart, Edvard Nalbandian, “It is crucial these days that we strictly comply with the agreements about the indefinite ceasefire of 1994-1995,” assured Lavrov, who also urged employing the OSCE’s documents regarding the measures of trust, the decline in tension and the referral to snipers and, at the same time, emphasized personal management carried out by the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, to stop the escalation of the conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan.
Regarding this, the authorities of the Republic of Nagorno Karabakh are ready to contribute to the monitoring and guarantee the security of the OSCE mission members which according to the UUN, is a clear sign of the good faith shown by this Republic which is unrepresented in the UN to bring back peace and security to the region.
Let’s remember that the ceasefire of the conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan was announced after May 5; however, both sides have declared daily violations of the ceasefire. For this reason, the Unrepresented United Nations Organisation have voted for the cessation of the hostilities in Nagorno Karabakh and for the respect of this Republic’s right to decide its own future.
