Civil Society Organizations in Armenia Urge UNICEF to Take Actions: Statement

We, a group of civil society organizations, condemn the aggression by the Azerbaijani regime towards civilian population in Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh) and Republic of Armenia and state our concern on continuous violations of children’s right to life, right to education and safe environment.

We, the undersigned, urge UNICEF to:

  • adhere to its mandate and promote protection of every child’s right to life regardless of their place of residence and its international recognition
  • observe and document the violations against children
  • assess the needs of children to provide emergency humanitarian assistance
  • condemn the violence unleashed by the Azerbaijani military and political leadership against children of Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh) and Armenia
