As a society we would like to see the Nagorno-Karabakh issue given more prominence in global diplomatic circles. We are concerned that the West is not giving any type of priority to sorting out what is a very difficult situation which has the capacity to explode into full-on conflict. It is disappointing to us that despite countless UN resolutions and a recent focus on the region with the conflict in Georgia, the Minsk Group and other nations are letting the illegal occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh by Armenia to carry on.

The Society strongly believes that a resolution to the on-going Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is vital for the prosperity of the Caucasus region. The Society also believes that the West has a strong role to play in ending the conflict, which is why we are constantly campaigning to raise awareness and end the apathy of the West towards the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The first step to end the apathy of the international community is to ensure that the five UN resolutions are not ignored. Central to these outcomes is the recognition of Armenia as the aggressor state. Baku has offered important concessions to Armenia, primarily a high degree of autonomy to the N-K Government. Azerbaijan has therefore been determined to seek a political solution even though the war crimes committed against its people could have precipitated legitimate military force at any time.
