On May 21, Armenia took another step to undermine the peace process at the highest level. It organized the so-called “inauguration” ceremony for the “president” appointed by the illegal “elections” for the Armenian community of the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. This provocative act took place in the Azerbaijani cinema building in the occupied Shusha city. Armenian political leaders attended the meeting.
Tural Ganjaliyev, head of the Azerbaijani community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, made the remarks while commenting on the so-called “oath-taking” ceremony held by Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, Report says.
“We firmly state that these games of the Armenian political leadership will be ineffective. The resolutions and statements of the UN and other international organizations reflect the true essence of the conflict. The Helsinki Document of 1992 refers to Armenia and Azerbaijan as parties to the conflict and both communities of the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan as interested parties,” Ganjaliyev said.
“The Karabakh region occupied by Armenia is an integral part of Azerbaijan, and this fact cannot be changed. The Constitution of Azerbaijan states that the territory of Azerbaijan is united, inviolable and indivisible.”
The Azerbaijani community head reiterated that the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict can only be resolved within the internationally recognized territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, through the withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan and the return of Azerbaijani IDPs to their lands.
