UN Head in Armenia Appeal

BAKU -- UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has called on Armenia to pull its forces out of Azerbaijan, including any which might be in the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh.

He told a news conference that the United Nations had clearly set out its principles on Armenia's seizure of territory in Azerbaijan.

"The fourth principle is the immediate withdrawal of foreign troops from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan," he said.

Boutros-Ghali, visiting the Transcaucasus, made clear this applied to Armenian national forces helping Karabakh Armenians to hold on to the enclave.
