Slovenia supports Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement based on UNSC resolutions
Slovenia supports the resolution of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in accordance with UN Security Council resolutions, according to the document adopted at a meeting of the Slovenian government on the results of hearings on the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict conducted in late 2014 by the Parliament of this country.


The document adopted by the Slovenian government supports the approach of the European Union, which includes Slovenia, to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Slovenia is also a supporter of the resolution of the conflict based on the UN Security Council resolutions and in accordance with the mandate of the OSCE Minsk Group, the document said.

The Slovenian government supports direct talks between Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve the conflict.

The Parliament of Slovenia held hearings on the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict at the end of 2014.

A document stating that the conflict settlement should be based on international law and the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and the resolutions on the conflict settlement adopted by the UN Security Council was adopted as a result of the hearings.

Issues concerning the military aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan, the massive and flagrant violations of the rights of about one million compatriots as a result of the policy of ethnic cleansing carried out by the aggressor, the scope of material and moral damage to Azerbaijan were discussed during the hearings.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.

As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
