Azerbaijan ‘Investigating’ European MPs Visit to Karabakh

BAKU (—Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry has said it is ‘investigating’ a recent visit to the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic by a delegation of European Parliament members, Foreign Ministry spokesman Elkhan Polukhov was quoted by the Azeri Trend news agency as saying Wednesday.

The delegation was in Karabakh from October 27 to 31 for a fact-finding mission to assess the judicial, political and humanitarian dimensions of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the European Armenian Federation for Justice and Democracy reported Tuesday.

While in the Karabakh, the delegation met with Nargorno-Karabakh Republic President Bako Sahakian, Speaker of Karabakh’s parliament, Ashot Ghoulian, the leaders of parliamentary blocs represented in the legislature, as well as leaders of refugee assistance groups for displaced persons from Sumgait, Baku, Kirovabad, Minkechaour and Shahumian.

“The relevant embassies will be instructed to consider this fact. If it is confirmed, these MPs will be included in the ‘black list’ of the ministry,” Polukhov threatened.

    We should not be surprise when Azerbaijani authorities do react in such rude manner, RA authorities have the own share in this situation!

    Authorities and political forces in Stepankert should not trust ANY MORE blind the officials in Yerevan, simple because Serzh Sarkisian is from Arstkah!

    After the latest statement of OSCE Minsk ambassadors the authorities in Stepanakert had to react quickly and declare the three OSCE ambassador Persona non grata and demanding form US , France, and Russia to appoint new peace porkers. There are many reasons for this. First OSCE Minsk group is declaring security area s occupied than renaming Stepanakert to Stepanaker-Kankendi and declaring elected authorities of Arstakh Republic as “de facto ” elected and finally they refuse to visit the former Armenian settlements occupied by Azerbaijani.. After all this the failed regime of Serzh Sarkisian and his foreign Minster an dthe ruling regime in the whole is keeping silence, While Azerbaijan foreign Minster all of sudden speaks of a the possibility of signing a “road map” !
