POLITICAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION URGES CLINTON TO CONDEMN AZERI PROVOCATIONS
- Political Science Association of Armenia issued a statement to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the OSCE Minsk Group.
In its statement issued in May 2012, Political Science Association of Armenia drew the attention of the international community to the fact that an official from Azerbaijani President's office issued a statement which said that the territorial claim to the Republic of Armenia synchronized with OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs' arrival in Baku on May 11, 2012.
Given the fact of the total control exercised by Ilham Aliyev's regime over the state and public institutions in Azerbaijan no one can doubt that the given provocation was ordered by President Aliyev himself.
Yesterday, on the very day of the US Secretary of State's arrival, three Armenian soldiers were killed in Azerbaijani sabotage when performing their military duty in the territory of the Republic of Armenia.
Under the condition of the arms race uncontrolled by the international community in Karabakh conflict zone, the treacherous killing of the Armenian citizens in Armenia synchronized with Hillary Clinton's visit to the South Caucasus. This is a cynical challenge to peace and stability in the region.
Political Science Association of Armenia calls upon the Honorable Minsk Group Co-Chair States to condemn the provocative actions of Azerbaijan and exert pressure on Aliev's regime demanding an unconditional implementation of the all international obligations concerning preservation of cease-fire regime at line of contact.
