Therefore, the MP organization called on its counterparts - Latvian and Lithuanian MPs - to establish the same unions in their countries.
"The Baltic Assembly uniting could express its position for GUAM, as well as to form cooperation strategy with GUAM. Urgency of expressing the position is now very important given the events which recently took place in several GUAM countries," Afandiyev said.
GUAM is an international regional organization uniting Georgia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and Moldova. The GUAM member countries cooperate within the framework of international organizations - the UN and OSCE. In 2003, GUAM was represented as observer in the UN General Assembly.
