Australian Azerbaijanis send open letter to pro-Armenian MP of New
South Wales State

Baku. Rufet Ahmadzadeh – APA. Australian Azerbaijanis have sent an
open letter to MP of New South Wales State Amanda Fazio who blamed
Azerbaijan for the last tensions in Karabakh and called for sanctions
against our country.
The Azerbaijan-Australia-Turk Friendship Society reported to APA that
the society’s chairman Imadaddin Gasimov’s letter expressed
disappointment over Amanda Fazio’s untrue statement.
Mr Gasimov mentioned in the letter that Mrs Fazio’s claims are in
contrast with the position of international organizations as well:
“Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity is recognized by the UN, the
Council of Europe, the European Parliament, the OSCE and many other
international organizations. Australia is one of the countries which
recognized Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity. Your position and ideas
are far beyond from the reality. Azerbaijani territories are under
Armenia’s occupation, and Azerbaijan is currently trying to restore
its territorial integrity by peaceful means. The ceasefire regime has
been continuing in Karabakh since 1994, and Azerbaijan has relied on
the OSCE Minsk Group’s mediation about resolution of the conflict.
Inspired by the latest happenings in Ukraine, Armenian aggressors are
lately trying to shatter the ceasefire and lay fictitious claims
against Azerbaijan. We regret that you are one of those who traveled
to Karabakh without an official permission from Baku. And we’d like to
remind you that it’s disrespect to the international law”.
Note that, the parliament of Australia’s New South Wales State had
recognized the independence of the illegal Nagorno-Karabakh Republic
