Nature of declaration : Objections
Status as of 18/07/2019


Objection contained in the instrument of ratification deposited on 30 August 2016 – Or. Engl.

The Republic of Armenia makes the following objection to the declaration made by the Republic of Azerbaijan in respect of the Council of Europe Convention on the Prevention of Terrorism, signed on 16 May 2005:

The Republic of Armenia states that the Republic of Azerbaijan deliberately misrepresents the essence of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue as regards the causes and consequences of the conflict. The conflict arose due to the policy of ethnic cleansing by the Republic of Azerbaijan aimed at repression of the free will of the Nagorno-Karabakh population, followed by the massive military aggression against the self-determined Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. As a result, the Republic of Azerbaijan has occupied several territories of Nagorno-Karabakh.
