Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend I.Alizade / Azerbaijani and Russian parliamentarians clashed in a difference of opinion during the 66th Rouz-Rout seminar of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Croatia, according to one of the two attending Azerbaijani MPs, Malahat Hasanova. According to her, the agenda included the issue of the status of Kosovo. The Russian parliamentarians stated that the model of Kosovo should be applied to the Nagorno-Karabakh and South Osetian conflicts. "However, we protested against the similarity between Kosovo and Nagorno-Karabakh," Hasanova said, adding that the seminar's participating delegations and Head of NATO Parliamentary Assembly stressed that the status of Kosovo cannot be an example for the solution of other conflicts.

Azerbaijan was represented at the seminar by its parliamentarians Siyavush Novruzov and Malaht Hasanova.
