Azerbaijan once again removes draft resolution entitled "Situation in the 'occupied territories' of Azerbaijan" from agenda of UN GA

The draft resolution entitled "Situation in the 'occupied territories' of Azerbaijan" has been again removed from agenda of UN General Assembly at the request of Baku.

According to Turan's diplomatic sources, voting was scheduled for Dec 12, but the Azerbaijani party considered it inexpedient discussing the draft resolution at present. At the same time, Azerbaijani diplomats in New York refuse to comment on the given issue. One can suppose that the OSCE Minsk Group co- chairs, who are against discussion of the issue outside the OSCE MG, have exerted certain pressure on official Baku.

The draft resolutions entitles "Situation in the 'occupied territories' of Azerbaijan" and "Frozen conflicts in the territory of GUAM and their influence on the international peace, security and development" were to be put on UN GA agenda yet last year.  Later, they were removed from agenda at the request of Azerbaijan.  Even if the documents are put on agenda finally, the OSCE MG co-chair-states - USA, Russia and France, will sure vote against both the documents.  Previous the co-chair-states voted against the UN resolution saying that the Karabakh conflict must be resolved in line with the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
