The Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Gurerres, claimed it is “totally unacceptable” the Armenian attack on Ganja, the second largest city in Azerbaijan, occurred this Friday, which killed at least 12 people and wounded 40.

“The tragic loss of civilian life, including children, as a result of the latest attack on Ganja is totally unacceptable,” Guterres said in a statement.

He indicated that indiscriminate attacks against populated areas are just as unacceptable. anywhere, “including in Stepanakert and other locations in and around the immediate Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.”

“The Secretary-General deeply regrets that the parties have continually ignored repeated calls by the international community to immediately stop the fighting,” said his spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

Even though a week ago Azerbaijan and Armenia agreed, with the mediation of Russia, a humanitarian ceasefire, military actions in the Nagorno Karabakh conflict zone have not stopped for a single day.

On the 16th, Armenia attacked Ganja with ballistic rockets that the adviser to the Azerbaijani presidency for international affairs Hikmet Hajiyev classified as a “war crime” because it did not respond to any military necessity since that city is far removed from the conflict zone.

The Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict dates back to the times of the Soviet Union, when at the end of the last decade of 1980 the Azerbaijani territory of Nagorno Karabakh, populated mainly by Armenians, requested its incorporation into neighboring Armenia, after which a war broke out that caused some 25,000 deaths.

At the end of the fighting, which lasted until 1994, the Armenian forces took control of Nagorno Karabakh and also occupied vast Azerbaijani territories, which they call a “security strip”, to unite it with Armenia.

The world Azerbaijan maintains that the solution to the conflict with Armenia necessarily involves the liberation of the occupied territories, demand that has been endorsed by several resolutions of the Security Council of the UN.

For its part, Armenia supports the right to self-determination of Nagorno Karabakh and advocates the participation of representatives of the separatist territory in the negotiations on the settlement of the conflict.

“As he underlined again in his last calls with the foreign ministers of Armenia and Azerbaijan, both parties have an obligation under international humanitarian law to constantly take care to preserve and protect civilians and civilian infrastructure in conducting military operations and protect civilians and civil infrastructure, “added Guterres’ spokesman.
