A growing number of people keep joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace, created by Azerbaijan to accelerate the process of peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through the people’s diplomacy

A growing number of people keep joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace, created by Azerbaijan to accelerate the process of peaceful settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through the people’s diplomacy.

President of the International Sustainable Energy Organization (ISEO) Gustav R. Grob made a statement on March 30 about his joining the Platform.

“After centuries of hatred and wars it is time for world-wide peace, tolerance and fruitful cooperation,” his statement reads.

Grob expressed his respect and support to territorial integrity, sovereignty and internationally recognized borders of the conflicting countries and added that he believes in peaceful solution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

He also emphasized the necessity of implementation of resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council, as well as resolutions and decisions of different international organizations.

“I would like to note the importance of efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group regarding the settlement of the conflict,” Grob stated.

Referring to the long tradition of coexistence of the peoples of Azerbaijan and Armenia, he noted with regret that the young generations in both countries have formed their perception about each other in the context of war resulting from the unresolved conflict.

“Armenia-Azerbaijan Peace Platform” is a unique opportunity to a fast peaceful resolution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan,” Grob stated.

The Armenia-Azerbaijan Peace Platform was founded on December 6 in Baku 2016 by a group of Azerbaijani and Armenian public figures and peacekeepers. It was created to bring together representatives of civil society of the two countries for creating dialogue between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the sides to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

However, this initiative was negatively perceived by the Armenian government, which started persecution of those Armenians who joined the Platform.

Chairman of Arabian Platform for Renewable and Efficient Energy and of Tunisian organization Women for Sustainable Development, Kamel Esseghairi also made a statement about joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace.

He also highlighted the necessity of implementing the resolutions adopted by the UN Security Council and other international organizations and recalled the efforts of the OSCE Minsk Group.

“I believe that this initiative will contribute to the solution of the conflict. Therefore, I make a statement about joining the Armenia-Azerbaijan Platform for Peace, which is aimed at a peaceful settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and restoring and preserving peace in South Caucasus,” Esseghairi writes.

Thus, the Platform for Peace is gaining strength as increasing number of people from around the world, including Armenia, joins it. Apart from the official negotiations of the presidents and foreign ministers of the conflicting countries, the people’s diplomacy is of high importance, and this has been stated by many international experts.
