The heads of the relevant diplomatic missions were invited to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia with regard to
the participation of the diplomatic representatives of some countries in
the visit organized by the Azerbaijani authorities to the occupied
territories of Nagorno-Karabakh on July 9-10.
The ambassadors have been handed over note verbal addressed to the
respective governments, wherein it was particularly stated that the
Republic of Armenia considers utterly unacceptable the visit of
diplomatic representatives accredited in Azerbaijan to the occupied
territories of Artsakh, including Hadrut and a historical center of
Artsakh - Shushi: regions which were ethnically cleansed and their
population was a subject of war crimes and other mass atrocities
committed by Azerbaijani armed forces during the recent aggression. It
was emphasized that by arranging such events the Azerbaijani authorities
are trying to legitimize the aggression against the people of Artsakh
and to strengthen their own claims of having resolved the conflict by
During all the meetings, it has been underlined that the involvement
of diplomatic representatives in such visits contradicts the spirit of
cooperation existing between the Republic of Armenia and those
countries, as well as to the position of the OSCE Minsk Group
Co-Chairmanship. In this regard, Armenia strongly calls for refraining
from any actions that may justify the use of force and thereby undermine
regional peace and security.
The use of force and mass atrocities cannot settle the
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and the resolution of the conflict can be
achieved only through negotiations under the auspices of the only
internationally mandated format- the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has brought the above-mentioned
position to the attention of the capitals of the respective countries,
which hold non-resident diplomatic missions to Armenia.
