‘Double standards’ behind failure to resolve Karabakh conflict

gulshan pashayeva karabakh problem 300x225 Double standards behind failure to resolve Karabakh conflictTalks to resolve the Karabakh conflict, mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group since 1994, have failed to make visible progress, a conference has heard.

The deputy director of the Azerbaijani president’s Centre for Strategic Studies, Gulshan Pashayeva, made the comment to the third forum of think tanks of OIC member states on “Changes and transformation in states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation”, Gun.Az reported.

Although the UN Security Council, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and several other international organizations have adopted resolutions on the Karabakh conflict, Armenian forces have yet to leave occupied Azerbaijani land, Pashayeva said.

“In general, international organizations apply double standards to the settlement of this problem,” she told the conference, adding that this is why the conflict has yet to be resolved.

“The negotiations should take both sides into consideration. There should be no loser or winner in the end. Time goes quickly. It does not wait for us. We should try to get back our land as soon as possible. If Armenia withdraws from our land, we can then think about taking steps to develop relations.”
