Joint Statement of the Business Community of Azerbaijan

 The American Chamber of Commerce in Azerbaijan (AmCham), The British Business Group in Azerbaijan (BBG), The Azerbaijan-France Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIAF), The Italy-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (ITAZERCOM) and The Israel-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IACCI) jointly express their support to the Azerbaijani Nation. 

We condemn all military actions by the Republic of Armenia towards the Republic of Azerbaijan including recent and ongoing attacks targeting civilians and critical infrastructure outside the conflict zone. We extend our condolences to those who have suffered as a result of the hostilities and we wish everyone to stay safe. 

We unequivocally support the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and call for resolution of the conflict within the framework of international law and in line with the UN Security Council Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884, which demand immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal of all Armenian forces from all the occupied territories of the Republic of Azerbaijan. 

The liberation of several territories in the past week from the occupation gives hope for the first time in 30 years that more than one million Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced people may return to their homes and enjoy a sustainable peace in a stabilized region.
