Azerbaijan, Baku, February 17 / Trend , A.Huseynbala/
The Parliament of Azerbaijan can again begin discussions related to the Euronews TV channel.
"Returning the biased and one-sided reportage regarding the
Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to the website of the Euronews TV channel makes regret, and this issue may again be brought up for discussion at the next meeting of the Parliament," deputy chairman of the committee on defence and security of the Parliament, MP Aydin Mirzazade told Trend on Feb. 17.
Euronews TV channel again posted the reportage titled "
Nagorno-Karabakh - wind of change" on its website.
On Nov. 28, Euronews has broadcasted a reportage by
Michael Raikhman "Nagorno-Karabakh - wind of change", which is very biased and one-sidedly interpreted events in the Karabakh war. After Azerbaijan's protest, the reportage was removed from the side.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a cease-fire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the United States - are currently holding peace negotiations.
According to Mirzazade, Euronews TV channel conducts a double policy.
"On the one hand, this channel shows the fair position of Azerbaijan, on the other - at the European level, presents false and slanderous claims of Armenians," he said.
"Already it is clear how the channel adheres to its position, and to what extent adheres to the European objectivity. Inaccuracies were also made in demonstrating Azerbaijan's position on this channel," the MP said.
According to him, for this reason, perhaps this issue can be re-considered at the Parliament.
"But the current position of Azerbaijan, measures aimed at liberating its lands will not be weaker due to some reportages by Euronews". We can achieve our goals through our own force. But along with this, the duplicitous policy of the channel, presenting someone's questionable interest, causes a big damage to the objective image of
Europe," said Mirzazade.
