Uruguay’s ruling party, the National Party, has adopted a declaration condemning Azerbaijan’s blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) and expressing solidarity with the people of Artsakh.
In the declaration, the National Party said that Azerbaijan is violating human rights and disregarding international documents, such as the 9 November 2020 trilateral ceasefire statement and the International Court of Justice ruling ordering it to lift the blockade.
National Party stressed the need to put an end to the constant encroachments against the Armenians of Artsakh in conditions of an ongoing genocidal policy by Azerbaijan. “Neither can the international community allow this situation, nor can it remain indifferent.”
“Together with the Armenian community of Uruguay, we express full solidarity with the people of Artsakh in its struggle. We unequivocally condemn the blockade of Lachin Corridor by Azerbaijan, which poses a threat to the existence of 120,000 people. We call on the legislative and executive authorities of our country, as well as the international community, to demand Azerbaijan to respect public international law and humanitarian law, and end this extremely grave situation,” reads an excerpt from the declaration.
