BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 23. Azerbaijan will
ensure the use of all international mechanisms to give a legal
assessment of the crimes of Armenia, Trend reports citing the press service of the
Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan filed interstate claims against Armenia to the
International Court of the UN for the International Convention 'On
the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination' back in
September of 2021.
The International Court unanimously decided on provisional
measures against Armenia based on the petitions filed by
Azerbaijan, on December 7, 2021. Thus, the court ordered Armenia to
take all necessary measures to prevent propaganda and incitement of
racial hostility against citizens of Azerbaijan and people of
Azerbaijani origin on the territory of Armenia, including
organizations and individuals as well as to refrain from actions
that could aggravate or prolong conflict or make it difficult to
resolve. The basis for the court's decision was the arguments and
evidence presented by Azerbaijan related to the fact that Armenia
failed to bring to justice its individuals and ethno-nationalist
groups (mainly VOMA, POGA, etc.) who voiced revanchist calls
inciting hatred against Azerbaijanis as well as the fact that
Armenian state bodies encouraged their activities in some cases and
awarded the activists of these organizations.
