MP: Azerbaijan's parliament should appeal to group of friends of Azerbaijan in U.S. Congress
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb.23 / Trend A.Huseynbala/
To avoid discussions related to false "Armenian genocide", the best way is to appeal to the group of friends of Azerbaijan in U.S. Congress on behalf of the Parliament, said MP Ganira Pashayeva on Feb. 23.
The claim about the "Armenian genocide" is a claim for recognition of the mass extermination of Armenians living in Anatolia during the First World War. Turkey considers the event as the Armenian-Turkish confrontation.
These appeals must be submitted by April 24. With such messages, we can influence on the Armenians' supporters in the Congress, she said.
"Any discussion in Congress related to the fictitious genocide is directed against positions of Turkey and Azerbaijan. So we must ask on behalf of the Azerbaijani parliament and appeal to our compatriots living in the United States. Head of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva and the representation of the Foundation in Russia carry out a great work in bringing to the world the truth about Azerbaijan. But the activities of our compatriots are also very important in this regard," she said.
