BAKU (Trend.az)—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.
