107th Session; 8 - 30 August 2022. Nationalist discourses on heritage and the cultural dressing up of violence.
Our recommendations to the international community are, following the ICJ order of 7 December 2021 and the EP resolution of 10 March 2022, to engage urgently and more effectively to ensure a long-term and sustainable resolution to the Artsakh conflict, acknowledging:
the xenophobic, aggressive and racist policies of the Republic of Azerbaijan at State- level and its intensive militarization that poses an existential threat to the people of Karabakh;
the torture and killing of Armenian captives, including PoWs and civilians;
the danger posed to Armenian cultural heritage;
The occupation of certain Armenian territories of Karabakh that ensure the integrity of the region, safe communication, access to water, and other security guarantees;
The impossibility of reconciliation between the conflicting parties under such conditions.
