Military Review

A meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation in the Caucasus was held

31

An extraordinary meeting of the UN Security Council took place. It was dedicated to the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.


Having considered the issue of the next escalation of the conflict in Transcaucasia, the representatives of the UN Security Council, as noted, supported the call of the Secretary General of the organization, Antonio Guteris, to immediately stop hostilities and sit down at the negotiating table without any delay.

It is also reported that the Security Council allowed a separate meeting, which would be attended by representatives of the conflicting parties - Armenia and Azerbaijan.

It was noted that the countries of the UN Security Council unanimously condemned the conduct of hostilities in the South Caucasus.

At the same time, it should be added that in fact, the only "external" country that supports active fighting is Turkey at the moment. Let us remind you that recently the Turkish authorities have been declaring their readiness to support Baku not only morally, but also militarily. At the same time, the Turks deny that it was they who shot down the Su-25 of the Armenian Air Force the day before.

Meanwhile, the fighting in the Caucasus continues. These hostilities are also a direct challenge to the UN Security Council, capable of showing its real ability (or inability) to stop the outbreak of armed conflicts.

    Unfortunately, nothing will go beyond calls ...
    Today, in my opinion, the UN is no more than a discussion club.

      rather, to show the failure of the UN. What this organization is worth, Powell showed with a test tube of washing powder.

      But at the same time, the decisions of the Security Council have legal force and allow, if something happens, to carry out "peace enforcement."

        and allow in case of anything to carry out "peace enforcement".

        If not on this the permanent members of the Security Council will not "put" it.

          Not all and not always. There are no disagreements on this issue yet. Trump has called for a ceasefire, and so has Putin. The rest will vryat will resist.

      No UN will solve the Karabakh problem. Ararat was once in Armenia too, so what? And the Turks and Kurds are not going anywhere. There is genetic hatred for Armenians, just like Europeans for Jews. It's all about the time of the explosion of this hatred.

        They themselves cannot solve it either. Now the task is to keep the conflict within the two states.

    cease hostilities immediately and sit down to the negotiating table without delay.
    Will they obey?

    If the Armenians resist, they will indeed "sit down at the negotiating table." Erdogan and Aliyev need any territorial "success."

      Erdogan needs a direct corridor between Turkey and Azerbaijan for laying the Azerbaijan-Turkey gas pipeline. Pumping gas through Georgia to Turkey is more expensive than the Armenian-Azerbaijani war. It looks like these are the minimum goals of Turkey and Azerbaijan in this war. Also, new Turkish drones and tactics of their use will be tested on free Armenian targets and Russian electronic warfare systems. Until Russia can create fighter drones, the Turkish victorious march under the umbrella of their Turkish drones will continue.

    The only thing the UN can do is to bring the UN peacekeeping force to the line of demarcation. This was practiced and effective in the past. Today, in the 21st century,
    The UN has become another instrument of the United States in foreign policy.

      This is unlikely. This requires the consent of both parties, and this is not beneficial to either of them. Azerbaijan hopes to achieve success, and Armenia in this case loses the corridor with the NKR, since the delimitation will pass along the established boundaries of the formations.

    Both sides took a bite at the bit, and specifically. For so many years they could not agree. Therefore, they will not sit down. And if they sit down, only if one of the sides suffers heavy losses.

      If one side suffers significant losses, then the second will try with all its might to consolidate the result with the most favorable conditions for itself. Up to full control over the disputed territories and their inclusion in its composition.

      Armenia will not stand against Turkey and Azerbaijan, therefore the solution to the issue of a peaceful settlement of the conflict will fall on the Russian army.

    If the UN does not bring in a peacekeeping force, they are unlikely to stop. The wrong peoples, the wrong temperament and traditions. But whether the UN will be able to achieve what is a big question. This tragedy (and the war cannot be called otherwise) will also show whether the UN is needed in its current form.

    Turkey is currently the only "external" country supporting active combat.

    When the S-400 complexes were sold to the Turks, they apparently did not count on such a scenario, but in vain ...

    If they sit down at the negotiating table, it will not be because of the condemnations, requests and admonitions of the UN Security Council. Erdogan, who is a direct participant in the next beginning of the hot stage of the conflict, apparently does not care much about the decisions (proposals) of the UN Security Council. Until something (he also does not care about the losses of the Azerbaijani side) will force him to command Azerbaijan to cease fire, until Russia acts tough (for example will threaten to introduce peacekeepers to the line of contact), hostilities will not stop in the coming days.

    In this situation, the UN can do little.
    The peacekeepers will not work, the parties will not agree.
    Karabakh and Armenia, of course, are not against the introduction of peacekeepers in the line of hostilities, it is beneficial for them, only Azerbaijan will be against it.
    Formally, Karabakh and other lands are the territory of Azerbaijan recognized by all, and it is difficult for the UN to make any decision that cancels this out.

    Yes, they have been meeting for 30 years already. Pour from empty to empty. There is no authority, no opportunities, the ability to objectively assess the situation is completely absent. The attempt of those who have retained their minds to do something is choking on the root by the pro-matras majority.

    How did it all start? Let's say Erdogan promised in advance all kinds of help.
    Further, in pursuance of the UN decision, troops will be brought in, but for some reason it will be NATO troops in white helmets.
