The principle of territorial integrity is the most operative concept when it comes to the resolution of such conflicts as the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, said Matthew Bryza, the former deputy assistant secretary of state for Europe and Eurasia, former US ambassador to Azerbaijan, director of International Centre for Defence and Security in Tallinn, Estonia.
