Statement of the National Assembly of Youth Organizations of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Uniting the country’s leading youth organizations and tens of thousands of young people The
National Assembly of Youth Organizations of the Republic of Azerbaijan has issued a
statement in connection with the intensive firing of the Azerbaijani army on the frontline in
gross violation of the ceasefire by the Armenian armed forces on September 27, 2020 at 06:00.
The statement reflected the following issues:
1 We strongly condemn this aggression against territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, which causes
casualties among Azerbaijani civilians and severe damage to the civilian infrastructure.
2 Azerbaijani armed forces take all necessary measures to respond to this provocation and to
defend its civilian population and infrastructure in full accordance with Article 51 of the United
Nations Charter. Azerbaijani youth supports and expresses solidarity with the Azerbaijani
armed forces in the exercise of this legitimate right.
3 It should be underlined that the Azerbaijani armed forces launched counter-offensive
exclusively on the internationally recognised territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and unlike
the occupant Armenian armed forces, do not target the civilian population.
4 We underline once again that Armenia`s policy of occupation and military aggression against
our country, which has been lasting for 30 years, is the major threat to peace, stability and full-
fledged development in the region.
5 We, the youth of Azerbaijan, including those displaced from the occupied territories, will
never reconcile with the occupation of our homeland and spare no effort for the justice to prevail
in this long-lasting conflict.
6 We call on the international community, including the United Nations (UN), the Organization
for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Council of Europe (CoE), the European
Union (EU) and other international organizations, to give a proper legal and political assessment
to this act of aggression by Armenia, which further undermines the peaceful settlement of the
conflict, and to take necessary steps to force Armenia to stop its aggressive policy, comply with
its international obligations and decisions taken by the international organizations, including
the UN Security Council Resolutions No. 822, 853, 874 and 884, and urge the international
community to condemn in the strongest term the war crimes of Armenia, which is
indiscriminately shelling the Azerbaijani civilians.
Karabakh is Azerbaijan!
