ISTANBUL (QHA) -

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev made his statement at the World Humanitarian Summit currently being held in Istanbul, Ukrinform reports.

“While it takes from one day to a few hours for other resolutions to be enforced, the UN Security Council resolutions on the Nagorny Karabakh conflict have not been enforced for more than 20 years,” said Aliyev.

According to Aliyev, that is a sign of double standards being applied towards his country.

Ilham Aliyev claims Armenia poses a new threat to the region by making the so-called ‘dirty bomb’ from its Metsamor nuclear power plant’s radioactive waste.

“There is evidence that Armenia has been illegally using radioactive waste from that station. Armenian MPs announced in April that the country possesses nuclear weapons – the so-called ‘dirty bomb’. The international community must respond to this. The nuclear threat from Armenia must be stopped!" said Aliyev.

It was reported earlier after a truce reached between Armenia and Azerbaijan on April 5, hostilities in Nagorny Karabakh stopped only to resume later.

The conflict between the two countries began in 1988 after Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Nagorny Karabakh and seven surrounding districts, which make up 20% of Azerbaijan's territory, are currently occupied by the Armenian armed forces.
