OSCE PA to discuss arson in Azerbaijani occupied territories
Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan.22 / Trend , A.Huseynbala /
Arson in Azerbaijani occupied territories will be submitted for discussion at the winter session of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (PA).
"Although the agenda of the winter session of the OSCE PA has not been publicized, we will take every effort to discuss issues confirming Armenia's aggressive policy," Azerbaijani parliamentary representative to OSCE PA Eldar Ibrahimov told Trend today.
Armenian Armed Forces commits arsons in Azerbaijan's occupied territories in order to harm environment every year, in particular, in spring and in summer.
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. General Assembly's resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
Ibrahimov said Azerbaijani delegation will once again raise an issue of resolving the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as it was in all sessions.
"We also intend to discuss the damage to our environment and cultural monuments, fires committed by Armenians in the occupied territories," MP said.
Ibrahimov said Azerbaijani delegation will also mull Armenia's continuing occupation policy during the meetings with parliamentarians of other countries.
Azerbaijani parliamentary delegation to the OSCE PA is headed by Vice Speaker Bahar Muradova.
