Azerbaijani opposition intends to establish the National Resistance Movement due to the situation with Nagorno-Karabakh, member of MP group 'Musavat', Panah Huseyin, told media on October 20.
"We are obliged to establish the National Resistance Movement to draw attention of Azerbaijani society and the international community towards Nagorno-Karabakh problem. The meetings are held between opposition parties on this regards. The decision will be made soon," Huseyn said.
