Azerbaijan demanded punishment of Armenia for expelling Azerbaijanis from Armenia
During the summer session of the Parliamentary Assembly of OSCE, we included in the agenda Azerbaijanis being expelled from Armenia, and demanded that Armenia should be punished, Rabiyat Aslanova, the member of Azerbaijani delegation in PA OSCE and also the chairman of the permanent commission of Azerbaijan Parliament on human rights, told Trend.
According Aslanova, meetings were held in three committees of PA OSCE on security and political issues, economic issues and human rights. The meeting focused on the topic Strengthening of security of people in OSCE territory. The representatives of 56 PA OSCE member-countries expressed their attitude towards the topic. Because any aggression was committed against any of the OSCE member-countries or territorial integrity was broken, it means that the security wasnt ensured, Aslanova told.
Besides, she pointed out that Azerbaijani delegation made proposals for this topic at three meetings. According to Aslanova, 16 out of the 36 proposals belonged to the Azerbaijani delegation. At the first committee reports were delivered by Azerbaijani representatives Bahar Muradova and Azay Guliyev. They could put forward their proposals. And at the second committee reports were delivered by me and deputy Fazil Mustafayev, Aslanova emphasized.
According to Aslanova, several question found their reflections during the discussions. Aslanova delivered a report in relation with national minorities. I urged to express attitude towards the destiny of Azerbaijanis expelled from Armenia. If Armenia expels national minorities from its territory, it means that the security hasnt been ensured. Therefore, we included this question in the agenda and demanded that Armenians should be punished for departing people from the country, Aslanova added.
At the committee on economic issues, appearances were made by Eldar Ibrahimov and Fattah Heydarov. They spoke about the huge economic projects of Azerbaijan. The summer session of PA OSCE held in Brussels will be completed on July 9.
