Baku’s Recurrent Attempts to Confuse UN Will Fail Again Says Armenian Foreign Ministry

YEREVAN (PanArmenian.Net–525 Gazet)–Commenting on a letter from Azerbaijan to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and the UN Security Council citing "cease-fire breaches by Armenian armed forces," Armenian foreign ministry press secretary Dzyunik Aghajanian said that the accusations amount to nothing more than an attempt to confuse the UN Security Council. "In fact–Azerbaijan routinely attempts to confuse the international community by sending letters to the UN and other international organizations–listing a variety of fabricated accusations against Armenia," said Aghajanian.

The list of accusations includes the burying of nuclear materials in the Mountainous Karabagh Republic–harboring terrorists–circulating illegal arms–drug trafficking and destroying Azeri monumen’s. Aghajanian stressed that none of these accusations should be taken seriously. "Moreover–such accusations have consistently been rejected both by UN corresponding structures and international organizations dealing with those issues," she noted.

As for the latest Azeri accusation that the Armenian side has violated the cease-fire agreement–Aghajanian said that a special representative of the OSCE chairman-in-office in the conflict zone is in charge of investigating the matters.

"Both Armenia and Mountainous Karabagh have consistently noted they are exclusively for a peaceful resolution of the problem; violating the cease-fire agreement is not advantageous–and [Azeri] transgressions will be rebuffed in a proper manner," she said.

Reporting on the matter–Azerbaijan’s 525 Gazet Newspaper says that Azerbaijan’s Foreign Minister Vilayat Guliev "does not rule out Armenia’s intention to violate stability in Azerbaijan before the October 15 presidential elections [in Azerbaijan]." And that "Armenia would get the response that it deserves."

Commenting on the latest proposal by French Senate President M. Christian Poncelet to organize a meeting in Baku with him and the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan–Guliyev said that Paris shouldn’t be waiting for Baku to warmly accept the Armenian President; "Azerbaijan could accept Kocharian if he comes to apologize."
