With the flare-up of tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan in the Nagorno-Karabakh area, I have revisited this conflict I wrote a paper about once. Azerbaijani Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov said it was Armenian provocations on April 2nd which began this latest round, he even points out the illegal presence of Armenian troops in an AZERTAC interview.
Through a 1994 report from Human Rights Watch I have come to the same conclusion, Nagorno-Kabarnakh is legally belonging to Azerbaijan. Armenian presence traced to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh today) is true, however I base political opinions on current events rather than historical ones. Reasoning with all the historical events between Artsakh and today, where do you draw the line?
