TREND Information, Azerbaijan
June 29 2006
We will do our best to have Nagorno-Karabakh issue discussed at PACE
summer session that takes place July 3 to 7 in Brussels, reportedly
said MP Eldar Ibrahimov, deputy head of Azeri delegation to PACE
and chairman of permanent commission for agrarian policy with Milli
Goran Lenmarker, PACE representative for Nagorno-Karabakh, is currently
drawing the report. "Regarding the report, Mr Lenmarker addressed the
parties to submit their proposals. Upon reviewing these proposals and
reaching agreement, the issue will be out to the day agenda. It is
still difficult to say whether this issue will be included or not",
– Ibrahimov said.
The proposals conflict has arisen. "Armenians offer to establish
economic relations, open roads between Azerbaijan and Armenia and
only then discuss territorial integrity. We decisively said first
they shall leave occupied lands and only then we will talk of economic
relations", – Ibrahimov added.
At the session, Azeri delegation is going to prepare a speech
"Ensuring security for people in OSCE region". The theme will be
linked to Armenia’s occupation policy and Nagorno-Karabakh problem.
"We will say: if we cannot ensure security of citizens of states
within OSCE, Armenia goes on with its occupation policy on Azerbaijan
and over million of our compatriots left their homes, what security
can be talked of?", – Ibrahimov said.
