  Azerbaijan attaches vital importance to full implementation of November 10 statement – minister

Azerbaijan is resolute to re-integrate its citizens of Armenian origin residing in the conflict-affected territories into its political, social, economic space, guaranteeing the same rights and freedoms with all the citizens of Azerbaijan regardless of their ethnic, religious affiliation, said Foreign Minister Jeyhun Bayramov.

The minister made the remarks at the High-Level Segment of the 46th session of the UN Human Rights Council, the Foreign Ministry told AzVision.az.

He emphasized that the Constitution of the Republic of Azerbaijan provides the solid legal framework, in this regard.

“Sustaining peace, rehabilitation and reconstruction activities, providing humanitarian assistance to those in need, including returning IDPs and refugees, should be absolute priority. To this end, Azerbaijan is ready to work with relevant international partners, including ICRC, UNHCR and other UN agencies as well as individual States willing to contribute to peace and stability in the region, in full compliance with the UN Guiding Principles on humanitarian assistance of 1991,” Minister Bayramov said.

The top diplomat noted that such an approach is based on international law, relevant resolutions and documents regulating UN’s activities in the fields of humanitarian assistance, post-conflict rehabilitation and reconstruction, and will serve as a confidence-building measure aimed at healing the wounds of the conflict.
