The Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue: the International Community should bear the Responsibility of preventing Turkey from justifying Conflicts and threatening International Peace and Security in some Countries
The Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue condemns the official declarations of the Turkish minister of defense and the Turkish president regarding direct and military intervention by sending mercenaries and armed militias to conflict areas between Armenia and Azerbaijan. It is mentioned that a status of tension and military skirmishes has started yesterday between the two countries because of disputing over the area of Nagorno-Karabakh which is an ethnic Armani area inside Azerbaijan and which has been out of control of Azerbaijan since the end of war in 1994. Both sides have intensive military presence along the demilitarized zone which separates Nagorno-Karabakh from the rest of Azerbaijan. Turkey has taken these disorders and troubles as a chance to intervene and practice its ‘hobby’ to achieve its ambitions in wealth and fortunes of some countries as what happened with its illegal intervention in Iraq, Syria and Libya.
The Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialogue assures that the international law criminalizes these practices as they threaten international peace and security and that the Turkish intervention in Azerbaijan threatens international peace and security. The forum adds that the international community should take lot of measures to stop these interventions illustrating that Turkey does not have any legal instrument justifying its interventions.
