France, Strasbourg, Oct. 5 /Trend, A.Maharramli/
Member of the Azerbaijani delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has prepared a document on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which was distributed after publication in English and French.
This document, compiled as a written request, is titled "Necessity for speeding up the peaceful solution of Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict".
According to the statute of the PACE, written declarations are not only published and circulated, but also declared at the plenary session by the Presidium. If more parliamentarians sign the document during the session, the written declaration is republished by adding these signatures. This means that the number of people getting familiarized with the document doubles, in other words, this means even more exposure of Armenia as an aggressor.
Azerbaijani delegate Rafael Huseynov said that the document once again exposes the hypocrisy of the Armenians.
The document reflects the occupation of Azerbaijani territories by Armenia, and despite the transformation of about one million people into refugees and internally displaced persons, the loss of thousands of people, indicates the consistent efforts of Azerbaijan in resolving the conflict peacefully, without use of military means.
"Notwithstanding that 20 % of its territory was occupied by Armenia and that nearly 1 million of its citizens turned into the refugees and IDPs, Azerbaijan is making continuous efforts towards a peaceful solution of the conflict, said the document. "Parliamentary Assembly Resolution 1416 (2005) not only refers to the Armenian occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh and 7 adjacent Azerbaijani districts, but also finds necessary a peaceful solution of the above-mentioned conflict. The presidents of the United States, France and Russia expressed the necessity for drafting a common peace agreement and made a joint statement at the meeting of the G-8 held in Italy in 2009 and in Canada in 2010. Armenia's ignorance of the renovated Madrid principles proposed by the OSCE Minsk group, which imply speeding up the solution of the problem and regular violation of the cease-fire agreement by this state along the entire contact line, generates concern. Armenia gives attention to improvement of ceasefire regime, which was adopted in 1994 as a temporary tool for speeding up the solution of the conflict, instead of peace agreement. "No peace, no war" situation and negotiations without results can not be continued endlessly. It creates serious threats to peace and stability in the South Caucasus and entire Europe promising threat of war," the document says.
By stating again the undesirability of the indicated level of relations between its member states, the Assembly finds it necessary to increase the concrete efforts towards the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through diplomatic and peaceful means, the document says.
