Following the developments in the Nagorno Karabakh, United Nations (UN) Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said that a delegation from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs will go to Karabakh at the weekend and conduct a situation assessment in the field.
Dujarric underlined that the main objective was to identify humanitarian needs and that all parties should respect international and humanitarian law.
Stating that they are aware of the Azerbaijani government's statement that it will respect the rights of minorities, Dujarric stated that the UN has not had access to the region for 30 years, so the delegation's visit is important.
"The UN delegation will go to the region with the full support and invitation of the Azerbaijani government," Dujarric said.
Armenian armed groups surrendered after a 24-hour anti-terrorist operation launched by the Azerbaijani army in Karabakh on September 19. While Azerbaijan declared victory in Karabakh, the dialogue process between the Armenian population and Azerbaijani representatives had begun.
