Israel calls for peaceful resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict

By: Sara Rajabova

Israel’s ex-foreign minister believes Azerbaijan’s development allows it to make strides towards the resolution of the long-lasting Armenian-Azerbaijani-Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Avigdor Lieberman, former Israeli foreign minister and leader of “Our Home Israel” party said Azerbaijan has reached today such a level of development, which allows achieving a breakthrough in resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through negotiations.

“Israel believes that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be resolved through peaceful negotiations,” Lieberman told Trend.

He noted that this process always takes a long time.

“We believe that it will be possible to achieve a breakthrough through negotiations at a level that Azerbaijan has reached,” Lieberman added.

The precarious ceasefire between Azerbaijan and Armenia was reached after a lengthy war that displaced over a million Azerbaijanis and has been in place between the two South Caucasus countries since 1994.

Since the hostilities, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territory, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Long-standing efforts by U.S, Russian and French mediators to solve the conflict peacefully have been largely fruitless over 20 years.

The UN Security Council has adopted four resolutions on Armenia’s withdrawal from the Azerbaijani territory, but they have not been enforced to this day.
