Stepanakert Slams PACE Report on Artsakh as Politically Motivated

Artsakh's presidential spokesman David Babayan

STEPANAKERT (—The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) rapporteur on Artsakh, Robert Walter, will pay a visit to Baku on March 12 and 13. As APA reports, Walter is due to deliver a report on the country during the visit.

In 2014, Walter delivered a report on escalation of violence in Artsakh and “other occupied territories of Azerbaijan.”

As Artsakh’a Presidential Spokesman David Babayan told, “A report with such a title and contents is unacceptable. We have nothing to hide, and our opinion is that a report should reflect the reality.”

He further slammed the approach demonstrated in the report as politically motivated, ruling out cooperation with Walter or his team on any issue.

As Babayan noted, no announcement was made of Walter’s intention to visit Artsakh with a similar initiative. “So, clearly, the report will be another politically motivated anti-Armenian document dictated by Azeri leadership. We don’t playing those games,” the official concluded.
