The Artsakh update

Azerbaijan has persuaded the UN to pass a resolution "reaffirm[ing] Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, expressing support for that country’s internationally recognized borders and demanding the immediate withdrawal of all Armenian forces from all occupied territories there".

Given recent events in Serbia / Kosovo, it is intriguing to note that some countries are quite happy to dismember Serbia in pursuit of self-determination for Albanians but will not extend the same principle to the Armenians of Artsakh. So, here are the states which have recognised Kosova but have also signed the Azeri motion:

Afghanistan
Bangladesh
Kuwait
Malaysia
Morocco
Pakistan
Saudi Arabia
Senegal
Turkey

Meanwhile, all credit to the unlikely list of refuseniks: Angola, Armenia, France, India, Russian Federation, United States, Vanuatu. Our man in NY abstained.

Somehow doubt that Serbia should be on your list. Not sure why you are trying to draw a distinction with Kosovo - surely the right answer both Serbia and Azebaijan lost their claims over their former territory because of the apalling manner in which they treated the majority community in that territory - i.e dismemberment was the right answer for both Serbia and Azerbaijan.

Spot the predominant religion in each of those countries......

What religion is Azerbaijan?
What is the religion of majority of the Kosovan Albanians?

Coincidence?

Serf - I was wondering if anyone might have spotted that particular camel in the living room...
