Origin
2023 - Third part-session
In the draft resolution, paragraph 4, first sentence, replace the words "is very concerned that country’s leadership has not made any effort" with the following words:

"notes that Azerbaijan has expressed, at the highest level, its determination to reintegrate the Armenian residents living in its territory into Azerbaijan’s political, legal, economic, social system as equal citizens. However, it calls for more consistent efforts"

Explanatory note

Regretfully, the current text arbitrarily overlooks the consistent efforts that Azerbaijan has been making since November 2020 with respect to addressing the rights and security of ethnic Armenian residents of the conflict-affected territories. Azerbaijan has consistently expressed its determination to reintegrate these residents as equal citizens.
