The UN Security Council may resume discussions on Nagorno-Karabakh if the situation in the conflict zone gets worse, Russian Permanent Representative Vassily Nebenzia said, Defence.az reports citing TASS.


"I cannot exclude that if the situation deteriorates, the Security Council may again return to the issue and look at it. In what form - we will decide as we go. If the situation worsens and if the conflict continues to internationalize, as we hear from many quotes, we'll see what we will do," Nebenzia said.

After a 25-year hiatus, the UN Security Council held discussions on the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on September 29 and October 19.

Following the October 19 discussions, a draft statement was prepared on behalf of the Security Council’s president. The document jointly developed by Russia and France lacks a reference to the relevant UN Security Council resolutions on Nagorno-Karabakh.

The member states of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and Indonesia, Tunisia, Niger, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, South Africa, as well as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, which are members of the Security Council, insisted on including a reference to the UNSC resolutions (822, 853, 874, 884) in the proposed draft document.

Consequently, the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, which are permanent members of the Security Council, were forced to withdraw their draft statement.

On this occasion, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has sent letters of gratitude to heads of state and government of Indonesia, Tunisia, Niger, Dominican Republic, Vietnam, South Africa, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
