Armenia Deman’s Corrections to Atkinson Report on Karabagh Conflict

In a letter to the President and Secretary General of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe–(PACE)–Armenia has requested that several corrections be made to the January 26 PACE report on the Mountainous Karabagh conflict–reports the Trend news agency.

In their letter to PACE president Peter Schieder and secretary general Terry Davis–Armenia’s parliamentary leadership accuses the European Commission of one-sidedly supporting Azerbaijan’s position [in the conflict]–and deman’s the removal of the term "separatist forces," among others. Armenia also expresses serious concern that the report fails to reflect issues tied to the regions of Ketashen and Shahumian.

Overall–the Armenian side requests changes in 14 articles of the report that deal with the status of Mountainous Karabagh–format of negotiations–and the history of that conflict. Authored by PACE rapporteur David Atkinson–the report will be reviewed on January 22 PACE’s Political Committee during a Council of Europe leadership summit.
