BAKU (Noyan Tapan)–Colonel Satihkov and other officers announced their desire to withdraw from the Karabakh Liberation Organization of Azerbaijan. This decision is due to the organization’s involvement with political matters–despite the fact that an agreement was made with its leader Akif Nagi–exempting the organization from engaging in any political activity. Satikhov also blamed General Tajedin Mehdiev for publishing documen’s containing discussions on military strategies and planning. A Committee on Former Military Officers headed by Satikhov is to be established soon–which will not be involved in any political issues. Its sole purpose will be the struggle to liberate Karabakh.
