BAKU (Armenpress)–Uzbekistan’s ambassador to Azerbaijan downplayed Baku’s allegations which claim that Nagorno Karabakh shelters terrorists. "Azerbaijan has to first prove the existence of terrorist camps in Nagorno Karabakh before they start talking about carrying out anti-terrorist action there," announced Uzbekistan’s Embassy.
In an interview with a Baku-based Olailar news agency Uzbekistan’s ambassador to Baku said it would be naive for Baku to expect support from the international community if it decides to take military action against Karabakh.
"Azerbaijan will have to provide proof to the international community–including Uzbekistan–that terrorist forces currently occupy Nagorno Karabakh," said the ambassador.
In a related development–an official of the Union for Azerbaijan organization told 525 Gazet that it views Armenia and Iran as Azerbaijan’s biggest enemies.
"Iran helped Armenia occupy Azerbaijani territories and was also involved in the explosion in the Baku underground and president Kocharian’s visit to Iran is not surprising," the official said.
