Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec.15 / Trend , A.Huseynbala /
Azerbaijani MPs protested against U.S. Congress assistance to the separatist regime of Nagorno Karabakh.
"Special discussions on U.S. Congress assistance to Armenian community of Nagorno Karabakh should be held at the Parliament and we must address to the Congress," Trend quoted MP Musa Guliyev as saying today.
Dec. 8, a joint conference between the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives adopted a bill on U.S. 2010 budget.
According to Guliyev, rendering assistance to Armenian separatists counteracts all norms of international law. "This step of U.S., who recognizes Azerbaijan's territorial integrity, implies moral and material support. This step decreases a confidence and trust to U.S. in Azerbaijan," the MP added.
Guliyev said that, U.S. might provide assistance to Nagorno Karabakh's Armenian community through Azerbaijani Government. "If the Congress allocated funds to Azerbaijan in this purpose we would assist both Azerbaijani and Armenian communities," Guliyev underscored.
MP stressed the importance of adopting a special decision to send to the Congress in this respect.
"Providing assistance to Nagorno-Karabakh is a step which damages the U.S. directly," Permanent Committee on State Building and Law Chairman Ali Huseynov said.
Huseynov said National Leader Heydar Aliyev expressed an attitude to such kind of steps by times.
"The U.S. is hurting its image of a fair country," Huseynov added. "The Parliament should adopt an appropriate decision to protest to U.S. Government urgently."
