ICESCO Calls for Respecting Cultural and Historical Rights in Nagorno-Karabakh
29 September 2020
As a specialized organization concerned with heritage, culture, and education, the Islamic World Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) expresses its concern over the latest developments of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia on Nagorno-Karabakh and the acts of destruction targeting archaeological and heritage sites and historical landmarks with significant civilizational value, including several mosques and historical sacred places. Accordingly, ICESCO calls the conflicting parties to exercise the utmost restraint and opt for serene dialogue and the resolutions of international legitimacy endorsed by many countries and international organizations including the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
Recalling the Security Council resolutions 822, 853, 874, and 884 issued in 1993 relevant to the Armenian violations, ICESCO calls on the parties to abide by the principles of international law; respect the historical and cultural rights of their legitimate owners; allow access of international humanitarian relief to the region without any impediments, and endeavor to consolidate peace, good neighborliness, and constructive cooperation between the countries of the region.
