The case was filed in connection with a possible violation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination against the Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Armenia appealed to the International Court of Justice in The Hague with a request to apply provisional measures against Azerbaijan. Armenpress reported this in connection with the press service of the court on Saturday, September 30.
“The Republic of Armenia, referring to Article 41 of the Charter and Article 73 of the Rules of Court, sent a petition to the court on September 28 for the indication of provisional measures to preserve and protect the rights stated in the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination,” the statement said.
Armenia called on the UN court to confirm Azerbaijan’s obligations to refuse “to take any actions directly or indirectly aimed at expelling the remaining ethnic Armenians from Nagorno-Karabakh.”
Let’s recall that on September 19, Azerbaijan announced the holding of “anti-terrorism measures” in Karabakh to “restore constitutional order.” On the same day, Baku announced the conditions for the end of the operation, including the surrender and disarmament of forces in the region. On September 20, Nagorno-Karabakh “authorities” accepted a ceasefire proposal.
Azerbaijan announced the restoration of sovereignty in Nagorno-Karabakh, and its residents, mostly ethnic Armenians, began to leave the region en masse.
It was also noted that the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh) will cease to exist on January 1, 2024.
