Letter to UN Secretary-General and Danish Parliament

Posted on: March 12, 2011

Dear Honorable Secretary General Ban Ki–Moon.

A 9-year-old resident of the Orta Garvand village in the Agdam region (Azerbaijan) was killed on March 8, 2011 as a result of a ceasefire violation by Armenian troops. Fariz Badalov was wounded in the head by shots from Armenian-occupied village of Shikhlar while playing in the yard of his house.

He was taken to hospital, but doctors failed to save his life.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 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.

The violation of the ceasefire by the Armenian side is no longer surprising. In the last month, Armenian occupying troops broke this fragile regime more than 50 times, killing two Azerbaijani soldiers and wounding two more in February alone. The same number suffered and died in January.

But while it is possible to envisage soldiers’ dying on the front line, although this is with great sorrow, the death of a child from a sniper’s bullet is unacceptable, regardless of the state of the process to resolve the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict.

We ask UN to place more pressure on Armenia to implement the U.N. Security Council’s four resolutions on the withdrawal of occupying forces from Azerbaijani territories.
