1) Azerbaijan says UN Security Council resolutions of 1993 back up their claims over Artsakh / Nagorno-Karabakh and justifies its use of military force. Here’s what you need to know?
2) The UN Security Council adopted 4 resolutions on #NagornoKarabakh (no 822, 853, 874, 884) exercising its main function of maintaining peace and security.
3) These resolutions confirm that Nagorno-Karabakh (not Armenia!) and Azerbaijan are the parties to the conflict.
4) The resolutions require the withdrawal of Nagorno-Karabakh forces from the ‘occupied’ territories adjacent to Nagorno-Karabakh, NOT NK itself. (Just like you couldn’t ask the English to withdraw from England, unless you suggest ethnic cleansing!).
5) Nagorno-Karabakh has never been part of an independent Azerbaijan because its population voted out while still under USSR rule according to the laws effective at the time.
6) Azerbaijan now claims these territories INCLUDING Nagorno-Karabakh referring to the principle of territorial integrity and citing UN SC resolutions. However…
7)The UNSC doesn’t have the legal power to determine legal or political aspects of conflict, incl territorial claims. Its main function is to maintain intl peace & security. In other words, Azerbaijan can’t rely on the wording of a UNSC resolution to assert territorial claim.
8) Instead, #Azrbaijan is breaching these resolutions by the use of force. The purpose of these #UNSC Resolutions is to achieve and maintain peace, which #Azerbaijan has breached.
9) #Nagorno_Karabakh democracy and people are now under threat of imminent and literal annihilation. Their survival can only be ensured through international recognition of #Karabakh and peaceful resolution.
