The Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Andrey Belyaninov, on behalf of the International Union of Non-Governmental Organizations "The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly" addresses the world community in connection with the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The appeal reads:

- On September 27, 2020, Armenia and Azerbaijan announced shelling on the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh. The states blamed each other for the escalation of the conflict. Martial law has been declared in Azerbaijan and Armenia, as well as in the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, and mobilization is underway. This is a terrible tragedy for many peoples of the Caucasus, for hundreds of thousands of civilians.

The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly International Union of Non-Governmental Organizations expresses concern about the aggravation of this protracted dispute between the two states. Members of the Assembly are citizens of both Azerbaijan and Armenia. We know firsthand about the desire of the peoples of these two countries for peace, commonwealth and cooperation. Among our friends and partners are representatives of more than 40 countries of Eurasia, and for everyone the most precious and desirable is peace - life without wars, without violence, without fear, tears and suffering.

Now the main thing is to make all the necessary efforts to prevent further development of the conflict in the Caucasus. It is necessary to stop hostilities and sit down at the table of civilized negotiations. All peoples and states are absolutely equal before moral laws, before God, and the more clearly this spiritual equality of peoples is accepted and realized by everyone, the closer will be our common and main goal - world peace.

On September 21, the people of the planet were united by the International Day of Peace. At the suggestion of the UN General Assembly, it is universally celebrated as a day of ceasefire and non-violence. On this day, the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly held  online campaign under the auspices of 75th anniversary of the Great Victory in the Second world war. Preserving the memory of the terrible trials, of the difficult years that caused irreparable damage to all mankind, we recall that the Victory of 1945 became possible thanks to the joint opposition to fascism, a common national feat, in which there were no national claims and divisions, but there was a common desire of all peoples to world peace.

On the issues of Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as on other conflict situations emerging today, the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly stands for a broad international dialogue aimed at strengthening the system of international security and trust between states, for preventing and eliminating absolutely all military threats. The actions of states to strengthen their own security should not lead to the formation of dividing lines and confrontation. World history has proven many times that peoples are strong primarily through mutual assistance, trust, unity and friendship.

We call on the international community to join efforts in building a just and secure world order based on the observance of universally recognized principles and norms of international law on the territory of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly will in every possible way promote the formation of a social integration model in the name of establishing peace and harmony through the development of multilateral cooperation and public (people's) diplomacy throughout the most densely populated continent of the Earth - on the territory of Eurasia.
