OIC calls for withdrawal of Armenian forces from occupied Azeri territories

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Monday condemned Armenia's attack on Azerbaijan and called for a political solution to the conflict between the two countries.

"While the OIC strongly condemns repeated provocations and aggression by the military forces of the Republic of Armenia, it renews its solidarity with the Republic of Azerbaijan and recalls the relevant resolutions and decisions of the OIC and the United Nations Security Council," the OIC said in a statement.

The organization said it was monitoring with deep concern Armenia's aggression in targeting several locations in its eastern neighbor and "violating the cease-fire and leaving behind civilian casualties."

"It [OIC] calls for the full and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian forces from the occupied Azeri territories and for dialogue to reach a political solution to the conflict between the two countries based on respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan, and the inviolability of its internationally recognized borders."

The OIC General Secretariat extended condolences to the families of the martyred, as well as the government and people of Azerbaijan, wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 05:00 (Msk). The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population. Seven villages of Fizuli and Jabrayil districts, key heights near Talysh, as well as Murovdag were liberated.
