Azerbaijani Parliament Discusses Activities of OSCE Minsk Group’s Co-chairs

Azerbaijan, Baku, 1 April / Trend corr I. Alizade/ The members of Azerbaijani Parliament urge to send protest letters to all the countries, particularly to the co-chairing countries of the OSCE Minsk Group (USA, Russia, France), which voted against the Resolution on the Occupied Territory of Azerbaijan at the UN General Assembly.

"The Azerbaijani Parliament should express its attitude to the question. The friendship groups of the parliament should send protest letters to the countries which voted against or abstained from voting," MP Mubariz Gurbanli, the Deputy Executive Secretary of the governing New Azerbaijan Party (NAP), said at the Parliament on 1 April.

The Resolution which was supported by 39 UN member countries calls to respect and support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan within the borders which were recognized by the world community.

The OSCE Minsk Group's Co-chairs believe that the UN Resolution, which was initiated by Baku, creates obstacles for continuation of peaceful negotiations for the settlement of Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict.

According to Gurbanli, the recent resolution which was passed at the UN General Assembly is the success of Azerbaijani diplomacy. He urges the Parliament first of all to send protest letters to the co-chairing countries of the Minsk Group.

MP Zahid Oruj said that the Azerbaijani Parliament should discuss the activities and recent steps of the OSCE Minsk Group.

"The Azerbaijani Parliament should send protest letters to the countries which voted against the Resolution. At the same time, gratitude letters should be send to the countries which voted in favour of the document," MP Ali Masimov said.

MP Gudrat Hasanguliyev believes that the situation that occurred around the solution of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should be discussed in the Parliament. "The discussions should be held in the Parliament with the participation of President and Government. The latest discussion in UN demonstrates that not only Russia, but the west countries are also interested that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict should remain in the frozen state. We should state openly to the population that the peaceful settlement of Nagorno-Karabakh is impossible."

Hasanguliyev supported the initiative to sent protest letters to the countries which voted against the resolution and gratitude letters to the countries which voted in favour of it.

MP Ganira Pashayeva proposed to discuss the activity of OSCE Minsk group co-chairs in the Parliament. Parliament must express its relation to this issue, she said.

MPs Ikram Israfil, Sabir Rustamkhanli, Fazil Gazanfaroglu, Siyavush Novruzov, Panah Huseyn also supported the initiative to address letters to UN.

Ziyafat Askarov, the First Vice Speaker, stated that Azerbaijan does not intend to refuse from mediation of OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs. "I support ideas stated in connection with the activity of Minsk Group. Minsk Group does not consist of only three countries, which voted against Azerbaijan, he said.

Askarov noted that Azerbaijan expected that during the discussions in UN, the Minsk Group will abstain from voting, as the mediators should not support either of the side "Presently, there is neither international law norms, nor its logic. The international law has become forceful law".
