Armenia undermining France's efforts in settlement of Karabakh conflict: Baku
The presentation of the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan at the Pavilion of Armenia in Le Village de la Francophonie in Yerevan Oct. 9, as part of the 17th Summit of the Francophonie Organization in Armenia, is another provocative step serving continuation of the occupation policy, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Oct. 10, Trend reports.
This step clearly demonstrates that Armenia wants to use the Francophonie Organization for its political purposes, reads the statement.
“These acts of Armenia that committed military aggression and occupied Azerbaijani lands grossly violate the norms and principles of international law, the UN Charter, the Helsinki Final Act and at the same time contradict with the Charter of the Francophonie Organization, the goals and objectives of the Organization,” the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry said.
“Armenia’s attempts to politicize the agenda of the Francophonie Organization are vivid evidence of its intentions to camouflage its occupation and aggression policy, as well as to undermine the efforts for peaceful settlement of the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, made by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs, including France, which is the initiator of the Francophonie Organization,” reads the statement.
