Hermine Naghdalyan refers to anti-Armenian reports included in PACE agenda
YEREVAN, JANUARY 14, ARMENPRESS. Armenian delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe takes measures to persuade the European deputies that the adoption of the anti-Armenian reports included in the agenda of the Assembly may endanger the peaceful process of Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement. National Assembly Vice President and the head of the Armenian delegation to PACE, Hermine Naghdalyan told the journalists about this after the RPA Executive Body session. “Those reports are the order of the Azerbaijani delegation to PACE. When they first started to be circulated, we did our best to persuade the European deputies that they can be dangerous for the peaceful settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict. And we work in that direction up to this point”, “Armenpress” reports, Naghdalyan stated.
She added that both reports were drawn up with PACE charter violations, as balance is not preserved there. “Those are biased reports. Balance has not been preserved in both reports. The reporters have not visited Nagorno Karabakh which is required by PACE charter”, Naghdalyan stated.
She also added that only the OSCE Minsk group has an international mandate for Nagorno Karabakh conflict settlement mediation, therefore, particularly Robert Walter’s report titled “Escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and the other occupied territories of Azerbaijan” is not a subject for PACE discussion.
