Vice Speaker of the National Assembly of Armenia, the Armenian
co-chair of the Armenian-Lithuanian Inter-parliamentary Friendship
Group Edward Sharmazanov has thanked the Lithuanian co-chair of the
group Algis Kaseta for the Lithuanian Seimas’s decision to decline the
resolution on the peaceful
settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
The press service of the National Assembly of Armenia quotes
Sharmazanov as saying that the resolution was anti-Armenian.
“By declining it Lithuania has reconfirmed its well-balanced stance on
the Nagorno-Karabakh problem and has demonstrated the futility of
Azerbaijan’s destructive efforts,” Sharmazanov said.
Kaseta congratulated Sharmazanov and the Republican Party of Armenia
on the victory in the May 6 parliamentary elections. “The Lithuanian
observers have confirmed the transparency of the elections and their
compliance with democratic values,” the Lithuanian MP said.
Sharmazanov and Kaseta pointed out the need to further deepen
Armenian-Lithuanian inter-parliamentary ties.
