Call On The International Community For An Adequate Response Against Azerbaijani Aggresssion

The undersigned Armenian civil society representatives are deeply concerned vis-à-vis the international response over the continued instability on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border in the light of the fact that Azerbaijan has for months been violating the territorial integrity of the Republic of Armenia in flagrant violation of international law and regularly inciting military clashes.

In this connection, we call on the international community, including the relevant UN bodies, the Council of Europe, OSCE, the European Commission and individual states to urgently condemn the policy of aggression exercised by Azerbaijan. Calls to “both parties” to pull back troops, reinstate the ceasefire and to de-escalate the situation are misplaced and do not reflect the situation on the ground.

On terminating the membership in the Competition Council for the selection of the chairman candidates for the Anti-Corruption Committee

Considering that TIAC, through the participation in the Competition Council, did not have the opportunity to fully contribute to the assessment  of the integrity of the candidates,their  professional qualities, to the development of appropriate mechanisms for the selection of worthy candidates for the position of the Committee Chairperson, we do not consider it convenient to continue the membership of our representative in the Competition Council.

From now on, we are going to consider the election of the chairman of the anti-corruption committee, following the public processes.


Statement: Immediately apply to the UN Security Council and OSCE

In view of the security challenges posed on the account of Azerbaijan violating Armenia’s territorial integrity, the fact that Azerbaijan has for months now been violating Armenia’s territorial integrity in flagrant violation of international law, and Azerbaijan’s policy of regularly inciting military clashes, we hereby once again urge the Armenian authorities to make use of the possibilities availed by the UN Charter and to immediately apply to the UN Security Council on the basis of the threat posed to international peace and security by Azerbaijan’s aggression and violation of Armenia’s territorial integrity.
