I’ve brought this location back up for a specific reason. The West, particularly France and the US, are looking for a reason to intervene. This is an attempt to destabilize the region. Targeting Iran, Turkey, Russia and redrawing borders that are advantageous to NATO interests
But it’s for “humanitarian reasons”- This appeals to the progressives who love war as long as it’s humanitarian- which it never is.
The U.N. Security Council has scheduled an emergency meeting to discuss the worsening humanitarian situation in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, after Armenia urged the international community to help end Azerbaijan’s months-long blockade of the isolated territory.
A schedule for the work of the Security Council, published late Monday night, confirmed that the appeal will be discussed on Wednesday. Armenia’s ambassador to the U.N., Mher Margaryan, last week wrote to the international conflict resolution body to warn Nagorno-Karabakh is “on the verge of a full-fledged humanitarian catastrophe.” The country’s Foreign Minister, Ararat Mirzoyan, will fly to New York to take part in the session.
Inside Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized borders,the mountainous region is home to tens of thousands of ethnic Armenians, governed autonomously as an unrecognized, self-declared state since the fall of the Soviet Union. In 2020, the Azerbaijani government launched an offensive to take back swathes of territory, and now insists that the Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians must lay down their weapons and submit to being ruled from Baku.
It’s Azerbaijan’s internationally recognized territory and from my reading it’s Armenia that’s up to tricks, so to speak. They want the West in there.
Despite a Moscow-brokered ceasefire assigning Russian peacekeepers to guard the only road linking Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia and the outside world, Azerbaijan took effective control of the highway last year.
In their own internationally recognized territory. This is a dangerous situation for many nations.
