Azeri envoy to US explains why world ignores Nagorno-Karabakh, focuses on Israel

The world rewards violence and uncivilized behavior and ignores those asserting their rights through appeals to international law and conscience, Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Washington, Elin Suleymanov, said Wednesday.

Suleymanov’s comments came during a telephone interview with The Jerusalem Post when asked why the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Armenia – a conflict that has left some 20 percent of Azerbaijan occupied, led to 30,000 people killed in a war in the early 1990s, and some million refugees and internally displaced people – does not get a fraction of the world’s attention that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict gets.
