Akif Jafarov appeals to Arkadi Ghukasian

24 April 2006 [16:48] - TODAY.AZ
Head of the Successors of Azerbaijan Democratic Republic Founders Organization, Akif Jafarov appealed to Arkadi Ghukasian, "President” of the alleged "Nagorno Karabakh Republic", which is illegally functioning in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

Akif Javarof told APA that the reason is to make clear Ghukasian's stance on the regulation of the relations between Azerbaijani and Armenian nations.

"As a successor of Mammayusif Jafarov and Aliisghender Jafarov, founders of the Azerbaijan statehood, I want to know your stance on the regulation of the relations between Azerbaijani and Armenian nations," Akif Jafarov writes in the appeal.

"God made both peoples leave together regardless our intentions. We have faced a lot of strange historic events. In modern period, we cannot solve problems and territorial claims between nations by referring to history. I reiterate that Azerbaijanis and Armenians are neighbors. We have to strengthen democracy and national-cultural positions in the framework of modern civilization. Despite millions of casualties in the war, Germany and Russia could restore friendly relations in all spheres of interstates relations. Besides, Germany could reconcile with the Jewish people.

Then, why do we-two states-Armenia and Azerbaijan have to separate the mountainous part of Karabakh (Nagorno Karabakh)? Knowing that the fate of the mountainous part of Karabakh would be solved in Versal peace conference, National Council of Karabakh Armenians and Armenian Priesthood adopted a 26-item decision on August 15, 1919. That decision determines remaining of the mountainous part of Garabagh inside of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan, and Armenians acknowledge that this territory belongs to Azerbaijan. The Versal peace conference participants in Paris recognized the boundaries of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan with the mountainous part of Karabakh inside on January 11, 1920. And Nagorno Karabakh was recognized as administrative territorial unit of Azerbaijan under the treaty signed during the Versal peace conference.

The Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict was solved by the leadership of Mammadyusif Jafarov, Foreign Minister and then parliament speaker of the Democratic Republic of Azerbaijan," Akif Javarof writes in the appeal.

Jafarov proposed both peoples to jointly appeal to the international organizations for solving the problem.

"Since the whole-Caucasus parliament achieved uniting all of the three South Caucasian peoples in 1918, we should struggle for the Trans-Caucasus ideas again and establish out statehood within united alliance. Then "those who gave lessons to us" will depend on us. The content is that this is inevitable for all the three South Caucasian peoples. The problem called Nagorno Karabakh has never existed, it is the idea of politicians. The problem is the two nations should reconcile. We can solve this problem," the appeal concludes.
