The International Court of Justice rejects Azerbaijan's claim against Armenia

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 22, ARMENPRESS. The International Court of Justice rejected Azerbaijan's request to indicate provisional measures against Armenia, ARMENPRESS reports, the decision was published on February 22.

The decision notes that the Court does not consider that the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination plausibly imposes any obligation on Armenia to take measures to enable Azerbaijan to undertake demining or to cease and desist from planting landmines. Azerbaijan has not placed before the Court evidence indicating that Armenia’s alleged conduct with respect to landmines has ‘the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing’, of rights of persons of Azerbaijani national or ethnic origin.”

The Court concludes from the foregoing that the conditions for the indication of provisional measures under Article 41 of the Statute are not met.
