ANCA welcome U.S. stand on Azerbaijani UN resolution

PanARMENIAN.Net - The United States, which serves along with the Russian Federation and France as Co-chairs of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Minsk Group charged with leading talks toward a Nagorno Karabakh settlement, voted last week against the passage of a biased and destructive United Nations General Assembly resolution offered by Azerbaijan, reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA).

"We welcome the vote of the United States against Azerbaijan's biased and destructive attempt to undermine the OSCE peace process," said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian.

"Rather than sincerely committing to the path of peace, Baku's most recent round of venue-shopping sadly is aimed at undercutting the ongoing negotiations - as they have done through their escalating threats of renewed war and their recent attacks on Nagorno Karabakh - and, domestically, at distracting pre-presidential election public attention away from the growing popular discontent with President Aliyev's increasingly corrupt and undemocratic government."

On March 14, with 39 votes in favor, 7 against and 100 abstentions, the UN General Assembly adopted the resolution "On the situation on the occupied territories of Azerbaijan."

OSCE MG co-chair states - Russia, U.S. and France voted against the measure.
