Turkey urges NATO to back Azerbaijan’s unity
Armenia directly targets civilians in Azerbaijan which is essentially a war crime, the Turkish foreign minister on Monday said Armenian forces have been targeting civilians in recent tensions at the Azerbaijan-Armenia front line.
Cavusoglu stressed that it's not the first time that Armenia attacked Azerbaijani civilians.
"Looking back at the history of this country, one can recall how its Armed Forces killed innocent people, especially, in Azerbaijan's Khojaly" he said.
Armenia, which has been cornered in the last days, has started to send missiles to Ganja and even to places close to Baku. Many, including children, were martyred in the Armenian attacks, Cavusoglu said.
The Turkish top diplomat pointed out that when the territorial integrity of Ukraine and Georgia is at stake, everyone rightfully supports these countries.
"So, why don't we say to Armenia 'withdraw from Azerbaijani lands' when it comes to the Armenia-Azerbaijan issue?" Cavusoglu asked.
Cavusoglu urged all sides, particularly NATO, to call on Armenia to withdraw from occupied Azerbaijani territories under the international law and the UN Security Council resolutions.
"It is normal for NATO to call for a ceasefire in a balanced way, as well as for a peaceful solution to the problem, However, everybody, especially NATO, should be present in the call for the resolution of this matter. That is, Armenia should withdraw from there within the framework of international law and the resolutions of the U.N. Security Council and under the territorial and border integrity of Azerbaijan. Otherwise, this problem cannot be solved."
