Baku asks UN to verify info of Armenian refugees' planned settlement in Karabakh

BAKU. Aug 9


The UN Security Council, responding to Azerbaijan's request, will
verify Armenian media reports claiming that Yerevan plans to settle
Armenian refugees from Syria and Lebanon on the occupied territories
of Nagorno-Karabakh.

"We have raised this issue within the UN Security Council and asked
the council's structures in charge of Syria to pay attention to it,"
Baku's UN Envoy Akshin Mehtiyev told the Lider television station.

The UN Security Council promised to look into this issue, he said.

"If this information [about plans to illegally settle refugees on the
occupied territories] is confirmed, we will be able to demand that the
OSCE Minsk Group co-chairmen take certain measures and bring up this
issue at the UN Security Council in a different way," the envoy said.
