Throughout the entire interval of battle between Azerbaijan and Armenia the escalation has by no means reached to such crucial level. Even in April 2016 when the Armenian facet began huge operations towards Azerbaijan, the 2 sides have by no means overtly talked a few warfare so confidently. The military mobilization of either side is an alarming incontrovertible fact that needs to be taken significantly by the worldwide group.
Worldwide group similar to OSCE are failing to unravel the issue by peaceable means which causes a decline in public belief in them. The Azerbaijani facet overtly claims that OCSE’s efforts are ineffective and extremely non-effective – writes Galib Mammadov, an unbiased knowledgeable and MA in Worldwide Relations from Washington College in St. Louis.
Even Azerbaijani authorities officers check with images of OCSE Minsk Group co-chairs having a celebration in Nagorno Karabakh as an alternative of conducting battle decision and peacekeeping actions.

Then again, any likelihood of warfare creates safety points for Armenia and as a final resort their authorities is aiming to make use of their relations with regional terror organizations similar to ASALA (Armenian Secret Military for the Liberation of Armenia) and PKK as a assure for his or her safety. When going again to 70s, 80s and 90s, it turns into evident that Armenia tends of collaborating with terror organizations and utilizing them as a tough energy for attaining their targets. Involvement of such organizations within the area is a big menace for the entire World. Thus in the event that they get strengthened within the area, they could get aligned with different terroristic businesses within the Center East which might increase a worldwide terror.

Moreover, the United Nations acknowledges the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan Republic and has 4 resolutions that decision on withdrawal of Armenian forces from occupied districts of Azerbaijan.
Background of ASALA’s Terror
Terrorist organizations just like the ASALA and the armed wing of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF) had been probably the most harmful terrorist actions in Europe in the course of the early 1970s. ASALA launched in Lebanon Beirut in 1975 for the aim of Roughly 90 people had been killed and lots of had been wounded by a terrorist assault by these organizations. Such assaults coated North America, Europe, the Center East and the south Pacific areas concentrating on ethnic Turks (largely diplomats). However in addition they took lives of American, French, Italian and Yugoslav folks. Making an allowance for the truth that, 1981 Armenian terrorists accounted for the very best variety of documented worldwide terrorist assaults, the U.S. authorities outlined Armenian terrorists as probably the most harmful group within the World at the moment.
Main terror operations of ASALA had been explosion on the Consulates Normal of the Republic of Turkey within the cities of Frankfurt, Cologne and Essen, Germany, explosion at Yeşilköy Airport in Istanbul, killing 5 and injuring 42, hostage disaster at Esenboga Airport in Ankara, killing 10 and injuring 82, explosion at a global commerce honest in Marseilles, France, killing one and injuring 26, Explosion on the Turkish Airways workplace at Orly airport in Paris, killing 8, and injuring 55.
Armenian political violence peaked between the autumn of 1979 and the summer season of 1983. By the tip of July 1983, assassinations, armed assaults and bomb assaults took the lives of many Turkish Overseas Ministry officers, dependents and workers, in addition to French, American, Italian, Yugoslav, Swiss and German nationals. The interval was marked by the notably brutal automated weapon assaults on the Esenboğa Airport, the Istanbul Coated Bazaar, and Turkish Embassy and Ambassadorial Residence in Lisbon within the summers of 1982 and 1983, and the untimely detonation of a bomb designed to blow up in mid-air on the Orly Airport in Paris in July 1983. Eight folks had been killed, together with 4 French residents, two Turks, an American, and a Swedish, and near sixty others had been wounded. Former CIA director of counterterrorism commented the state of affairs as following: “They [Armenians]’re brutal… They don’t take hostages to barter. It’s simply out-and-out homicide.” Armenian terror was a nightmare for each Europeans and People and ASALA was a novel case that shall not be forgotten as a lesson by Worldwide group.
Armenia – ASALA relations
Armenia’s prior president Ter-Petrosyan attended ASALA member’s Monte Melkonian’s funeral in 1993. It clearly means ASALA considered a official entity in Armenia. Armenia confirmed their assist to terrorist group which took lives of many individuals throughout the World. As well as, Members of ASALA are formally considered nationwide heroes. Thus, after dying Monte Melkonian was awarded with the very best navy honors of Nagorno Karabagh and the Republic of Armenia, together with the Navy Cross, First Diploma and the Golden Eagle medal. Armenia overtly promotes terror actions and provides legitimacy to such actions. That shall be an alarm not only for the area, additionally for the entire World. Thus, terror operations of ASALA affected not simply Turks and Azerbaijani folks within the area, additionally affected Europe and the US of America taking lives of many individuals.
As well as, in response to official Armenian media sources Armenian authorities began a program on settlement of Lebanese Armenians to occupied territories of Azerbaijan. In august 2020 Armenian media declared two Lebanese-Armenian households transfer to Nagorno-Karabakh. In September 2020 the quantity reached to at least one hundred folks.

Armenia’s insurance policies for attaining of its targets by the use of terror and warfare would jeopardize peace not simply within the area additionally in Europe.
Each Armenia’s respect to nation’s terrorist leaders in authorities stage and its settlement plan relating to Armenians of Lebanon offers a foundation to construct a speculation that Armenia is aiming to revive its historic terror organizations like ASALA. Worldwide group shall use its all means (sanctions, notes and and so on.) to forestall Armenia utilizing a terrorism as a software for his or her political targets, like they did in 70s, 80s, and 90s. Deployment of terrorist teams like PKK and ASALA to Nagorno Karabakh and different occupied territories of Azerbaijan, will take lives not simply Azerbaijani or Turkish folks, additionally, European, American, Russian and even Armenian folks could also be victims of their operations prefer it occurred within the close to historical past. The message shall be clear that any aim shall not be achieved by assault, terror, assassinations and massacres. If Such organizations succeed, it’ll inspire many different terror organizations to behave which is able to jeopardize international peace and safety. Sanctions and related measures by worldwide group shall be imposed to any authorities that helps act of terror.
