Armenians cultivate drugs and train terrorist groups in the Azerbaijani occupied territories, Azerbaijani Deputy Prime Minister Ali Hasanov said at the fifth International Conference of Ombudsmen in Baku today.
He recalled that Armenia has not allowed the UN to monitor the occupied territories. Hasanov added that the international community must not remain indifferent to this issue.
"The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict remains unresolved because of the double standards applied by the international community," Hasanov said.
Russia must also define its position on this issue because Moscow has the key to solving the conflict, he stressed.
"Armenia has no interest for Russia," he said. "Azerbaijan is much more important to it."
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994.
The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
