Turkey to Aid Settlement of ‘Frozen Conflicts’ in Caucasus, Says Ambassador

BAKU (Trend)–Turkey will assist the settlement of “frozen conflicts” in the region as soon as it begins its role as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Hulusi Kilic told to journalists in Baku on Monday.

Settlement of the conflicts will provide stability in the South Caucasus, he added.

Elected as one of five non-permanent members of the UN Security Council by the UN General Assembly last week, Turkey is set to assume its seat as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council on 1 January, 2009 according to Council’s decision made last week.

“At this post, Turkey plans to assist the fulfillment of the four UN Resolutions on Armenia, Azerbaijan, and the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and to advance peace settling of the conflict,” said Kilic.
