Objection contained in a letter from the Permanent Representative of Armenia, dated 20 February 2018, registered at the Secretariat General on 26 February 2018 – Or. Engl.

The Republic of Armenia makes the following statement with regard to the declaration made by the Republic of Azerbaijan in respect of the Council of Europe Convention on Laundering, Search, Seizure and Confiscation of the Proceeds from Crime and on the Financing of Terrorism /hereinafter Convention/, stated in the instrument of ratification deposited on 9 August 2017:

1. The declaration of the Republic of Azerbaijan is incompatible with the object and purpose of the Convention and thus being in violation with the provisions of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties of 1969.

2. The Republic of Azerbaijan deliberately misrepresents the essence of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue, with respect to the causes and effects of the conflict. The conflict arose due to the policy of ethnic cleansing by the Republic of Azerbaijan followed by the massive military aggression against the self-determined Nagorno-Karabakh Republic - with the aim to repress the free will of the Nagorno-Karabakh population. As a result, the Republic of Azerbaijan has occupied several territories of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
