On Situation in Zone of Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict

On Situation in Zone of Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict

The reports of the killed and wounded, including the casualties among the civilian population during the aggravation of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, cause deep sorrow and compassion for the families and friends of the victims.

Since the founding of the United Nations, we have repeatedly experienced difficult historical events associated with interstate conflicts, and we could make sure that all of them were associated with massive violations of human and civil rights, human grief and destruction. In the year of the 75th anniversary, we are especially acutely aware of this and hope that the parties to the conflict will make every effort to prevent further flagrant violations of the UN principles and fundamental human rights and freedoms, especially the right to life.

I appeal to my colleagues, the ombudsmen in the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Republic of Armenia, to recommend that the governments of their states show restraint and take all possible measures that can lead to solving problems not by force and arms, but through dialogue and negotiations in order to stabilize the situation. I am sure that the displayed humanity and the existing international legal mechanisms will help to avoid violence and protect the fundamental rights of citizens.

For my part, I am ready to provide assistance to anyone who finds himself in a difficult life situation in connection with the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
