European Azerbaijan Society Board members meet with MPs
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 8 / Trend M.Aliyev /
The European-Azerbaijan Society Board will meet with Azerbaijani MPs this week.
"We need to apply international law in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Despite the fact that Azerbaijan and Armenia are members of one organization, Armenia is holding 'elections' in the territory of a neighboring country. The UK has the largest investments in Azerbaijan, and must be more interested in Azerbaijan's territorial integrity. The participation of British MPs in the illegal 'elections' negatively affects the negotiation process," MP Asim Mollazade said at the meeting.
During the meeting, the European-Azerbaijan Society Board Chairman, Lord John Laird asked questions relating to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Replying to the questions, MP Rovshan Rzayev said the Nagorno-Karabakh community is waiting for the problems arising from the new Madrid Principles to be addressed.
"Azerbaijan stands for a peaceful resolution to this issue. The rights of the Azerbaijani community in Nagorno Karabakh are being violated," Rzayev said.
The European-Azerbaijan Society was established on the basis of the London Azerbaijan Society in the UK in 2004. In November 2008, the society was submitted to the House of Lords. Given the importance of ongoing projects related to Azerbaijan in Europe, the society decided to open an office in Baku. The European-Azerbaijan Society's main objective is to represent Azerbaijan in Europe as a country with a rich culture and tremendous economic opportunities, to promote Azerbaijan's international relations in European media and political and cultural circles in Europe, to spread the truth about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict on the international level and to attract attention of the West to this issue.
Tale Heydarov is the chairman of the society.
