UN Secretary General: Neither Azerbaijan nor Armenia wins the conflict

50

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for an end to all armed conflicts, including the Libyan, Yemeni, Afghan and Karabakh conflicts. After all, if they continue, then there will be one winner - the coronavirus pandemic.


He stated this during an interview with the Associated Press.

The UN Secretary General believes that an immediate ceasefire must be made in all hot spots of the planet. He looks forward to the support of his initiative from the international community. Guterres calls on everyone with influence on the parties to conflicts to make efforts to stop all hostilities by the end of this year.

Referring to the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, the UN Secretary General drew attention to the sharp increase in the number of infected people in Armenia and Azerbaijan:

Over the past two weeks, the number of COVID-19 cases in Armenia has doubled and in Azerbaijan has increased by 80 percent. Armenia is not winning. Azerbaijan is not winning. COVID-19 wins.


A similar situation is observed in other "hot spots" - Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, the African region of the Sahel. Therefore, the UN head sees his main mission in stopping hostilities in the context of the coronavirus pandemic:

I am here to urge them all to understand that it is impossible to win a war.

Guterres believes that a common position on this issue among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, the United States, Britain, France and China - can help to stop the conflicts.

      Azerbaijan has already won a strategic victory, now the only question is the number of killed and wounded. The fighting began in the direction of Shushi and Khojavend, less than 10 km from the Lachin corridor, the working range of the artillery.

          Yes, just an advertisement for hysteria about Covid.
          Hysteria is very skillfully inflated by all the media. It is a multipurpose multi-year program of the world behind the scenes.
          The goal is money, of course.
          The bubble of the virtual dollar economy cannot inflate indefinitely. That's why there are crises - "blow off steam". But the bubble has already reached such a size that a simple crisis does not help. That is why the war, at first in the Middle East, but gradually expands to a worldwide one. Well, and hysteria in the media about an artificially created epidemic to aggravate the crisis.

      This is called propaganda! But in reality the Armenians are suffering heavy losses and are retreating under the onslaught of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan was preparing, and the Armenians were Maidan. and Azerbaijan is on the shoulder because of oil ... here is such a parsley)
      I am not on anyone's side in this war and I think that there is no need to fight at all.

        "I am not on anyone's side in this war and I think that there is no need to fight at all." A. Suvorov.
        Was there no need to fight against Hitler? Just sit at the negotiating table?

        How else, apart from war, can Azerbaijan return its territories? And to return to them a MILLION of Azerbaijanis expelled from these Azerbaijani territories?
        By the way, the Armenians never settled these occupied territories by the Armenians. Armenians generally prefer to live anywhere, but not in Armenia and Karabakh.
        Almost as many Armenians live in Karabakh as in Istanbul.

          Our ancestors found a way out of the situation 100 years ago and a peaceful way out, which means there are solutions to the issue in a peaceful way ... And this is how they kill each other for the amusement of a third party ... (Turks, for example)

        Theoretically, they can cut off parts and inflict losses on Azerbaijanis in the gorge on the way to the Lachin corridor

        The League of Nations disintegrated - because its decisions were of no interest to anyone, the UN apparently faces the same fate. It is possible, of course, to reform this body, but it seems that no one needs it.

        Hi Albert hi The only question is that these several countries nevertheless adhered to certain rules of the game, and with the aggression in Yugoslavia, international law simply disappeared. This is the sadness. Is it really necessary to have a Big War to work out the New Rules? Who needs it, me - Definitely not. Only the "sofa" strategists yell - I will win everyone, not realizing that the Big mess will affect everyone and that they will not sit out behind the sofa. I want to raise Cubs, and I do not want my Son to have the same as me.

    called for an end to all armed conflicts

    We also need to urge the poor to become rich, urge the children of Africa to stop starving and turn to the coronavirus so that it goes home. And to be sure - you still need to make the same wishes to the tooth fairy.
    The UN Secretary General definitely has a clear plan of action to save our world.

    end all armed conflicts, including Libyan, Yemeni, Afghan and Karabakh
    And everyone rushed to fulfill the call, fearing a pandemic. They do not regret sending their soldiers to the offensive for the virtual mastery of several hills, and they will be afraid of the coronavirus.
    urge them all to understand that it is impossible to win a war
    But at the same time, in every war, in the end, there is a winner and a loser.

    We got it already with this coronavirus, weave it everywhere and to everything, to the place and out of place. It is absolutely not for this reason that the conflict must be ended, if we speak. And as you can see - this type of epidemic does not interfere with war at all, as they fought and are fighting.

    "Over the past two weeks, the number of COVID-19 cases in Armenia has doubled, while in Azerbaijan it has increased by 80 percent. Armenia is not winning. Azerbaijan is not winning. COVID-19 is winning."

    The UN Secretary General is just a de-general. In belligerent countries, the number of testing should be drastically reduced, hence the number of diagnosed patients too. But the UN Secretary General does not need to know arithmetic.
