Azerbaijani Parliament's International and Inter-Parliamentary
Relations Committee condemned the resolution on the relations
between the EU and Azerbaijan that the European Parliament passed
on March 15, Azernews reports.
The committee said in a statement that the resolution“shocks
for the amount of false and offensive rhetoric contained in it and
aimed deliberately at discrediting Azerbaijan's efforts to achieve
peace, provoking the revanchist forces in Armenia and destabilizing
the already complex situation in the South Caucasus in general and
in the Karabakh Economic Region of Azerbaijan in particular”.
Besides, the committee expressed disappointment that the
European Parliament has not only failed to prevent the adoption
from damaging its reputation but has also“become a tool in the
hands of those trying to realize their nefarious plans in the South
Caucasus Region through chaos and war”.
The statement also said that the resolution of the European
Parliament questioned the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan,
which is a complete disrespect for both international law and the
very charter of this organization. The statement pointed out that
the adoption of such a document originates from Armenia and the
Armenian Diaspora, which is“a cancerous tumor of Europe”.
The committer further pointed out that the adoption of this
resolution completely disregards Azerbaijan's history and its pain
whether through the occupation of 20 percent of its territory,
ethnic cleansing, the Khojaly Genocide, as well as over a million
refugees and internally displaced people.
Moreover, the statement underlined that the fact that the
parliament repeats Armenian“tales of blockade of Lachin road” only
indicated its partiality in the adoption of the resolution.
In parallel, the committee drew attention to the stance taken by
the Commissioner for European Integration and Neighbourhood Policy
of the European Union Oliver Várhelyi, who was able to maintain a
balanced approach to assessing the developments in the region.
To recap, the statement called on European parliamentarians“to
come to their senses, not to stir the pot to feed revanchist forces
but to engage in a constructive dialogue based on mutual respect
