MP: US concedes unfairness, disrespect in its mediation mission on Karabakh conflict
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 16
By Elchin Mehdiyev – Trend:
The visit of Bako Sahakyan, who claims to be the “president” of the illegal regime created in the occupied Azerbaijani territories, to the US and holding of meetings in the US Congress shows that Washington concedes unfairness and disrespect in its mediation mission on resolution of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, MP Elman Mammadov told Trend on March 16.
He noted that the US is not an impartial mediator in the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
"The visit of the separatists to the US is not the issue of yesterday or today, this process continues since 1992. So, how can we hope that the OSCE Minsk Group co-chair countries will fairly resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict?," he said.
The MP said that Sahakyan's visit to the United States is a clear example of double standards in the US policy.
Earlier, the US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Robert Cekuta was summoned to the Foreign Ministry and received a note of protest, sent by the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan to the US State Department.
Meanwhile, Azerbaijan’s ambassador to the US Elin Suleymanov, after a meeting in the State Department, presented the protest of Azerbaijan to the American side.
