Deputy Speaker: Historians and scholars must express attitude towards history
Azerbaijan, Baku, March 10 / Trend M. Aliyev /
"If the step taken by the U.S. Congress is implemented by the end, then we will also maintain our previous position," Deputy Speaker Bahar Muradova told media today.
The parliamentary discussion of "Armenian genocide" leads to political consideration of historical events and the establishment of appropriate political relations. It does not contribute to the strengthening but leads to the deterioration of relations between countries. If one searches, one can find similar events in the history of every nation. The attitude to history should be expressed by historians and scholars, Muradova said.
The resolution on recognition the so-called Armenian genocide was adopted by 23 votes 'in favor' and 22 'against' the resolution on recognition at the meeting of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the U.S. House of Representatives on March 4.
The Azerbaijani Parliament adopted an appeal to the U.S. Congress as a protest.
