Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 14 / Trend /
The ruling New Azerbaijan Party and the Azerbaijani public are concerned and sorry about the provisions reflected in the European parliament's resolution on Azerbaijan and the extradition of Ramil Safarov, which was passed on September 13, the official website of the party said today.
The ruling party sent an appeal to the European Parliament in connection with this document.
"While extraditing and pardoning Azerbaijani army officer Ramil Safarov, Azerbaijan remains true to the principles and norms of international law," the ruling party's statement to the European parliament said.
The concerns of the Azerbaijani public, who protested the resolution of the European Parliament, are reflected in the appeal.
"The position reflected in the document is biased and prejudiced, we are concerned by the fact that this document may exacerbate the situation in the region, and we hope that parliamentarians will comprehensively examine the problem while taking further action on such a sensitive issue," the statement said.
On Thursday, the European parliament adopted a resolution with regard to Ramil Safarov's extradition to Azerbaijan and his pardoning by the president.
The resolution regretted that Safarov was received as a hero at home, and expressed concern that this may lead to increasing tensions between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
