(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, December 2. French lagazetteaz.fr newspaper (founded by
trend News Agency)
published an article of its Executive Director Jean-Michel Brun
about the biased decision of the French Parliament's lower house -
the National Assembly, unanimously requiring to 'stop the
aggression of Azerbaijan against Armenia', trend reports on December
According to the article, this resolution adopted by the
National Assembly is illegal.
'As it's known, this resolution was adopted unanimously.
However, only 256 out of 577 MPs took part in the vote. Thus, only
those who supported the resolution participated in the debate,” the
author said.“Those who didn't support could vote against or
abstain. They chose not to participate, instead of publicly
declaring their position and exposing themselves to the risk of
reprisals from the Armenian electorate.”
He also reminded that the recent 'Yellow Vests crisis' had
exposed the gap between the French people and the Parliament,
which, in their opinion, can no longer represent them.
“This resolution certainly doesn't reflect the opinion of the
French people, even if it's constantly promoted by the pro-Armenian
media. At least, according to a number of French diplomats, this
doesn't reflect the government's position,' Brun noted.
According to the journalist, the text of the resolution is more
like a pro-Armenian manifesto than a decision of the National
'This resolution completely distorts the existing realities,' he
The article noted that the resolution mentions only the victims
from the Armenian side during the 2020 second Karabakh war.
'Although the MPs mentioned in the resolution about 7,000
'displaced' Armenians, they forgot about the Azerbaijanis expelled
from their lands during the first Karabakh war,' Brun pointed
The article's author also noted that after the signing of the
trilateral statement dated November 10, 2020 [by Azerbaijani,
Armenian and Russian leaders following the second Karabakh war], to
which the French MPs refer, the Armenian side constantly violated
its provisions, in particular, continued to lay mines on the
territory of Azerbaijan.
Further, the journalist stressed that Armenia doesn't want to
hand over accurate mine maps and thus endangers the lives of the
Azerbaijani military servicemen and civilians involved in the
restoration work in the liberated territories.
