House of Lords, Human Rights, Questions, Speeches


Posted by Lord Sheikh

My Lords, Armenia forcibly occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, which should have been part of Azerbaijan under four UN Security Council resolutions, in 1993. During the war there were injuries and loss of life on both sides, and one side cannot be held responsible for such consequences over another. Azerbaijan took what was rightfully theirs. Does my noble friend accept that? Does he also accept that the current situation in Nagorno-Karabakh is that Armenia is refusing to share landmine data with Azerbaijan, which is causing injury and death, and that Armenia is also failing to withdraw its armed forces from the territory?

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon replied:

My Lords, I hear what my noble friend says and of course, we are working towards a peaceful resolution of the conflict for both sides.
