On the morning of September 27, the Armenian Armed Forces launched an attack on the positions of the Azerbaijani army on the line of separation with the Azerbaijani-occupied Azerbaijani Karabakh. Thus, the Armenian aggressors showed the whole world that not only are they not going to start de-occupation of the Azerbaijani lands, but are clearly pursuing the goal of expanding the zone of occupation.
Before that, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan actually crossed out all the results of many years of negotiations on the beginning of a peaceful settlement of the Karabakh conflict, making it clear that he was not going to return even 5 of the 7 occupied regions outside the former NKAO to Azerbaijan. This is how his words “Karabakh is Armenia - that's the point” should be interpreted.
Meanwhile, going to the very negotiations on the stage-by-stage de-occupation, Azerbaijan demonstrated its peace-loving position and went simply to simply unthinkable concessions to the Armenian aggressors. According to the UN Security Council Resolutions, Armenia should have immediately liberated all occupied Azerbaijani territories long ago. Since the whole of Karabakh, including the former NKAO, is an integral part of Azerbaijan.
The whole world recognizes that Karabakh belongs to Azerbaijan and does not even think to question it. Proof of this is provided by international legal documents - the following resolutions:
UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 822 (1993) of 30 April 1993
UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 853 (1993) of 29 July 1993
UN Security Council RESOLUTION 874 (1993) of 14 October 1993
UN SECURITY COUNCIL RESOLUTION 884 (1993) of November 12, 1993.
Armenia, pursuant to these resolutions, must immediately withdraw its troops from the Azerbaijani territory. But for 27 years, Yerevan has not made a single step towards the implementation of these documents. This means that Azerbaijan has the right to independently liberate the occupied lands. And if the aggressor not only does not want to do this "for good", but seeks to seize new territories, then Azerbaijan is simply obliged to do it by force.
At the same time, for Georgia, the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions on Karabakh is of great importance precisely because the international community holds a similar position on Abkhazia and the Tskhinvali region. These lands are also recognized as an integral part of Georgia, as well as Karabakh - an integral part of Azerbaijan.
The de-occupation of Karabakh will create a precedent and put on the agenda the issue of the immediate de-occupation of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali, as well as the immediate return of Georgian refugees to their homes. As is known, Armenia regularly opposed this, voting in the UN against the return of Georgian refugees on all resolutions adopted on this issue since 2008.
The so-called "NKR", created by the Armenian occupants in the captured Azerbaijani Karabakh, recognizes the separatist regimes in Sukhumi and Tskhinvali and provides them with full support. The de-occupation of Karabakh will eliminate this ugly separatist entity as a hotbed of instability in the South Caucasus and the epicenter of the spread of separatism.
