Azerbaijan may recall ambassador from US

Azerbaijani parliament The parliament deputy considers that Azerbaijan
should recall its ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary from
the United States.

Azerbaijan should recall its ambassador in Washington in connection
with the support of resolution on "Armenian genocide" in the Committee
on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, says deputy of the
Milli Majlis of the pro-governmental Ana Vatan (Motherland) party
Zahid Oruj.

"History showed that the Azerbaijan has always taken the most correct
and timely decision in an emotional state. I therefore consider it
necessary to recall our ambassador to the United States with the
wording "for consultations", said the deputy at the plenary session of
the Milli Mejlis on Friday.

According to him, the opinion that the Committee on Foreign Affairs
House of Representatives adopted the draft resolution on "genocide"
under the pressure of the Armenian lobby is a delusion.

"There is a frank bargain. By using the document, the US side is
putting pressure on Turkey to force it to open the border with Armenia
and to disavow the prerequisite of the liberation of occupied
Azerbaijani lands by Armenia. In turn, this will lead to the victory
of the Armenian diplomacy", considers Z. Oruj.

"The United States have failed to appoint its ambassador to Azerbaijan
for already half a year. This fact does not prove friendly attitude of
Washington to our country. The absence of the US ambassador has
numerous subtexts, both political and pursuing the plans to impose
pressure on our country.

This is also connected with the fact that the United States is working
in direction of the opening of the Armenian-Turkish borders", added MP
Gudrat Hasanquliyev.
