Azerbaijans Military Operation in Nagorno-Karabakh Raises International Concern, Calls for Peace

Azerbaijan launched a military operation in the breakaway Nagorno-Karabakh region, demanding the total withdrawal of Armenian forces from the area as a precondition for peace. This move has been met with international concern and calls for an end to the fighting. Armenia has urged Russia and the United Nations to intervene and prevent further escalation. Turkey, on the other hand, has expressed full support for Azerbaijan's military operation. Russia, which previously brokered a ceasefire in the region, has called for an end to the fighting and urged both parties to engage in negotiations.

The European Union has condemned the escalation and called on Azerbaijan to stop its military activities. The United States has expressed deep concern and called for an immediate end to the military operation. Germany has criticized Azerbaijan for breaking its promise to refrain from military action. France has called for an urgent UN Security Council meeting to address the crisis. Meanwhile, the United States has indicated its inability to engage in direct discussions with Russia regarding the Karabakh issue but is actively engaged in negotiations with Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The US is prioritizing efforts to normalize relations between the two countries and achieve a just and enduring peace. President Joe Biden used his speech at the United Nations General Assembly to call on world leaders to continue supporting Ukraine against Russia's "illegal war of conquest." He emphasized the importance of standing up to aggression to secure the independence of nations. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is also set to address the assembly and may come face to face with Russian officials. Russia, despite calls for its removal, remains a permanent UN member.
