Milli Majlis of Azerbaijan responds to attack of US senators
Today, the working group of the Milli Mejlis of Azerbaijan on inter-parliamentary relations with the US Congress published a statement, which contains a response to a letter from several American senators who demanded that President Joseph Biden take measures against Azerbaijan and Turkey.
Recall that the letter was sent to Biden on February 9. The Milli Mejlis noted that the letter caused regret among the Azerbaijani deputies, and drew attention to the fact that the overwhelming majority of the signatories of this document have never engaged in constructive mediation of the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict within the framework of the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.
"Most US senators have never expressed concern about the policy of ethnic cleansing conducted by Armenia against the Azerbaijani people, the expulsion of hundreds of thousands of people from their native lands, gross violations of human rights, the destruction and plundering of villages, cities, the ancient and rich cultural heritage of the Azerbaijani people during the occupation. ", - said the Azerbaijani MPs, adding that many American senators also did not condemn the massacres of Azerbaijanis and the war crimes of the Armenian Armed Forces.
At the same time, official Washington signed in due time under the requirements of observing the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and ending the occupation of its lands by the Armenian troops, which is contained in the UN Security Council resolutions No. 822, No. 853, No. 874 and No. 884 of 1993. These resolutions were executed by Azerbaijan itself during the 44-day Second Karabakh War, and the operation to force Armenia to peace was carried out exclusively within the internationally recognized borders of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
"It is unacceptable for US senators to blame Azerbaijan for the settlement of the conflict, which has restored its territorial integrity. Such statements do not serve peace and security in the South Caucasus region, but can push the existing radical and revanchist forces in Armenia to a new escalation of the situation," the Azerbaijani parliament stressed ...
"It is unfair to criticize Turkey for its political and moral support for Azerbaijan's just struggle based on the norms and principles of international law. The growing politicization of human rights is a matter of serious concern. Senators' attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of a sovereign state, such as Turkey, are unacceptable," Azerbaijani MPs added.
