The Armenian Prime Minister said the principles of the UN Charter have been violated, particularly the principle of the non-use of force against the territorial integrity of any country on which the collective security of us all is based.

Iran PressAfrica: Nikol Pashinyan then added: "Thus gradually imposing the ‘might is right’ rule, the Republic of Azerbaijan aggression against Armenia on 13-14 September is a vivid manifestation of the reality."

Delivering a speech at the 18th Summit of the International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF) in Djerba, Tunisia, Pashinyan said: “The unprovoked and completely unjustified Azerbaijani aggression has led to the occupation of a part of Armenia’s territories and caused death and suffering to the civilian population, and significant damages."

"The ceasefire; however, still hasn’t ended that country’s aspirations towards more Armenian territory. Facing new threats, we expect the international community to give a just assessment to the situation in our country, condemning the occupation of certain parts of Armenian territories and demanding the withdrawal of Azerbaijani troops. In turn, Armenia is resolutely committed to contributing to the process of reaching a peace treaty with Azerbaijan and to ensure the rights and security of the Armenian population of Nagorno Karabakh,” Pashinyan in part said.

Speaking about the challenges in the world in the past years, Pashinyan addressed the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, resumption of wars, and subsequent impact on global food and energy supply.

He called for emphasizing the principle of solidarity in promoting stronger cooperation between countries in conditions of pandemics and climate challenges.

Pashinyan mentioned that the motto of the OIF’s Yerevan summit, held four years ago, “Living Together,” is still actual and that it is necessary to promote respect for human rights, equality, and cultural diversity in conditions of growing hate speech and intolerance.
