(ArmRadio)—The Basque Parliament has adopted a statement, condemning the recent Azerbaijani ceasefire violations against Nagorno Karabakh.

The statement was adopted unilaterally by all political parties represented in the Parliament.

The statement notes that on April 2, 2016, Azerbaijan unilaterally launched an unprecedented attack along the entire line of contact with Nagorno Karabakh. This attack has caused dozens of deaths, including four civilians, one of them a child.

The Basque Parliament shows its deep concern at the ceasefire violation and expresses condolences for all victims of the attacks.

The Parliament welcomes the resumption of truce the two sides announced on April 5 and hopes it will be respected. The lawmakers demand to implement an international mechanism for investigation of border incidents proposed by the Minsk Group Co-Chairs.

They reject the use of force to resolve the conflict and call on the parties to take practical steps to immediately cease military actions and withdraw the troops to the positions held prior to April 1, 2016.

The Basque Parliament also supports the need to return to the negotiation process mediated by the OSCE  Minsk Group.

    Bravo and Thank you., it is time that Madrid take action towards condemning Azerbaijan and to recognize the Armenian Genocide, though the current corrupt politicians are more interested in looting the country than to worry about decency and values.

    The US and the remaining Western countries should follow Basque’s example, instead of giving into Turkish dictator Erdogan (including the corrupt Azeris politicians).
