Armenian Troops Launch Offensive Against US Ally Azerbaijan
On April 1 units of the Armenian army deployed to occupied Nagorno Karabakh region of Azerbaijan launched an offensive against Azerbaijan. According to Associated Press, the Armenian military fired mortars and large-caliber artillery shells at Azerbaijani-populated villages on the line of contact between Armenian and Azeri forces.
Secretary Kerry affirmed U.S. support for Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, a core principle of international law, violated by Armenia since 1994. Obviously, Russia is angered by US-Azerbaijani strategic alliance and Washington's support to Azerbaijan's sovereignty. Hence the Armenia's large scale offensive. The attack against Azerbaijan follows the explicitly-affirmed doctrine of Armenian president Serzh Sargsyan's that Armenia will "coordinate its foreign policy with Russia."
UN Security Council adopted four resolutions 822, 853, 874, 884 calling for immediate withdrawal of Armenian forces, allowing the return of Azerbaijani refugees. Armenia is yet to comply. Please call on Armenia to implement UN SC resolutions and comply with norms of international law.
