Azerbaijan to Act Through its National Interests in Recalling Peacekeepers from Kosovo: Deputy Minister
Azerbaijan, Baku, 28 February / corr Trend K.Ramazanova / Azerbaijan will act through its national interests in the recall of peacekeepers from Kosovo, Araz Azimov, the Azerbaijani deputy foreign minister, said in talks with journalists on 28 February.
The Azerbaijani President recently appealed to Parliament for a decision to be made on recalling the Azerbaijani peacekeepers from Kosovo. Earlier, Baku reported on the illegality of Kosovo's unilateral separation from Serbia. This will be discussed by Parliament on 28 February.
On 17 February Kosovo declared its independence.
"NATO does not ensure the security of partner countries as it does the other members of the alliance," Azimov. He noted that the Kosovo situation has changed drastically and Azerbaijan should reconsider its position in this connection. Nevertheless, Azerbaijan's relations with NATO will remain unchanged, he said.
