Azerbaijan, Baku, April 10 / Trend M.Aliyev /
An issue of adopting a separate law on Karabakh has been again submitted to the Azerbaijani parliament's discussion.
If Azerbaijan has a single law on occupied territories, Armenian separatists in Nagorno-Karabakh won't be able to participate in any economic programs, a member of the Parliamentary Committee on Security and Defence, Zahid Oruj, told Trend on Tuesday. He stressed that it will also make international organizations abandon the allocation of funds to Nagorno-Karabakh.
"The Armenian separatists of Karabakh establish relations with various foreign organizations. Through the embassies abroad Azerbaijan sends notes, requests. But after the adoption of a specific law on Karabakh as a territory of Azerbaijan its sovereign rights will be taken into account implicitly, any foreign, economic and political ties of Karabakh will not be recognized," he said.
Under the provisions of the law, it will not be allowed to sign any contracts with any of the structures with prejudice to Karabakh, any international or national documents relating to the Karabakh will be declared invalid, the MP said.
Often citizens of various foreign countries, culture and art workers, and sometimes MPs go to Karabakh, Oruj said. Their names are entered only in the "black list" prepared by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic, while it can be implemented by law.
"I have prepared a similar bill on Karabakh," a member of the Parliamentary Committee on Legal Policy and State Building, MP Gudrat Hasanguliyev told Trend on Tuesday.
He said he has repeatedly raised this issue at previous sessions of Parliament, and stressed the importance of adopting a law on the occupied territories. He said the prepared bill will be submitted to the committee which it represents.
