18 June 2005 [09:37] - TODAY.AZ
The members of Milli Majlis (Azeri Parliament) adopted an appeal to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).
The objective position of the Council of Europe based on the international law principles and norms in the question of regulating the Nagorno Karabakh conflict in peaceful way is highly valued in the appeal.

Adoption of the order # 1416 reflecting the position of PACE on the Armenia-Azerbaijan, Nagorno Karabakh conflict in the sitting of the winter session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe held on January 25 this year was a weighty gift to the international efforts being made for regulating the conflict.

Occupation of the Azerbaijani territories by the Armed Forces of Armenia, Nagorno Karabakh region’s being under the surveillance of the separatist forces and ethnic cleaning held in those territories are reflected in the order. On the other hand, it was declared that occupation of the foreign territories by the country being the member of the Council of Europe was serious violation of the commitments undertaken by that country before the organization, effort of annexing by means of force was seriously criticized, certain orders of the Security Council of UNO requiring the occupied Azerbaijani territories to be released were quoted, importance of withdrawing the armed forces from the whole occupied territories was noted, the right of the displaced persons from their native lands to return back to their lands was asserted”. Milli Majlis informed that Armenia was continuing keeping the Azerbaijani lands under its occupation ignoring the demands of the international union and this country tried to legalize the separatist regime formed in the occupied territories.

The members of Milli Majlis remembered that “elections” to the “parliament of the fake Republic of Nagorno Karabakh” was intended to be held in mountainous part of occupied Nagorno Karabakh region on June 19 and informed that such step was contrary to the international law principles and norms, demands of the documents of the international organizations including the order $ 1416 of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Azerbaijan. It is noted with the feeling of regret in the appeal that the delegations, parliamentarians and other political figures from some countries were preparing to participate in this illegal political measure as the observers.

“The international union including the Council of Europe should not be inattentive to this action of political diversion intended to be held in the mountainous part of occupied Garabagh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Milli Majlis of the Republic of Azerbaijan requires holding “elections” to the “parliament of the fake Republic of Nagorno Karabakh” to be severely criticized, and to consider participation of the official representatives of the countries included in the Council of Europe to be impossible because of being contrary to the principles of the Council of Europe”.
