Azerbaijani MPs call Armenian president's maneuvers unsuccessful
Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 17 /Trend, M.Aliyev/
Azerbaijani MPs assess Armenian parliament's adoption of a bill on regulating relations with subjects, not recognized by the international law, the next maneuver of the Sargsyan regime.
"The situation of the Sargsyan regime in Armenia is very heavy, and therefore, the regime carries out a variety of maneuvers with the help of its supporters at the parliament," Azerbaijani MP
Zahid Oruj told Trend.
The Armenian parliament adopted Friday the draft amendments to the law "On international agreements" in the second and final reading. This law would regulate relations with the unrecognized subjects of international law in the matters of ensuring peace, human rights, humanitarian or economic and financial aid.
"This step of the Armenian parliament will not be supported by other subjects of international law," said Oruj. According to him, Armenia commits all the same actions of vandalism, which it committed during the occupation of Azerbaijani territories, now covering them with parliamentary discussions, as though taking place within law.
"This law was adopted by a team of Serj Sargsyan to demonstrate that they also take some steps. Because they have neither the courage nor the opportunity to formally recognize the separatist regime of Nagorno-Karabakh," MP
Rasim Musabeyov told Trend.
According to him, this decision has no value in terms of international law. "It is possible to take a decision on the confirmation of its sovereignty even on the Moon," Musabeyov said.
According to the MP, referring to this decision being contrary to the principles of international law, Armenia may attempt to establish ties with Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria. "But here it will face a strong reaction of the European Union, Georgia and Moldova. And with regards to Nagorno-Karabakh, this law generally will not change anything," said Musabeyov.
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 7 surrounding districts.
Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
