Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Elkhan Suleymanov: The motion for resolution demanding the application of sanctions against Armenia will place PACE before a historical choice

Elkhan Suleymanov: The motion for resolution demanding the application of sanctions against Armenia will place PACE before a historical choiceAs you know, USA, European Union, and Council of Europe applied sanctions against Russia following the developments in Ukraine. Even the Resolution 1990 (2014) adopted by PACE on April 10, 2014 suspended voting rights of Russian delegation and excluded it from its leading bodies. Undoubtedly, we seriously thought over the failure to apply similar sanctions against Armenia, which keeps Azerbaijani territories under occupation, for long and to show the support as in Ukraine’s case. The application of sanctions against Russia regarding the developments in Ukraine encouraged us to raise our just demands. Thus, a motion for resolution under my authorship was tabled in PACE on the application of similar sanctions against Armenia due to the fact that it keeps Azerbaijani territories under armed occupation. The motion reads: “Because of respect for one single standard in PACE, we call on the Assembly to adopt exactly similar sanctions against Armenian delegation in PACE, suspending voting rights and excluding it from leading bodies, until the end of illegal occupation of Azerbaijani territories.”

Anti-Azerbaijani forces extend their campaign against our country

Anti-Azerbaijani forces extend their campaign against our countryOn the eve of May 14th when Azerbaijan will take over the chairmanship to the Committee of Ministers, high-level body of the Council of Europe, the campaigns of several traditional anti-Azerbaijani organizations against our country extended. As usual, European Stability Initiative, Freedom House, Human Rights Watch and others among these organizations are particularly distinguished.

 

Indeed, these organizations hadn’t stopped their biased campaign against Azerbaijan; this campaign has dynamically strengthened since a few months and reached its peak on the eve of the visit of French President François Hollande and CoE Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland to our country and Azerbaijan’s forthcoming chairmanship in the Committee of Ministers on May 14th.

The problem on Sarsang should be considered as a part of ethnic cleansing policy launched by Armenians in 1905

The problem on Sarsang should be considered as a part of ethnic cleansing policy launched by Armenians in 1905The Association for Civil Society Development in Azerbaijan (ACSDA) dedicated its activity to ensuring national interests of Azerbaijani state and people and realized a lot of projects in this sphere.

 

In this regard, one of the ACSDA’s priorities is to deliver to the world community the truths regarding Armenians’ systemic and constant genocide crimes against Azerbaijani people, Armenian armed aggression against our country, ethnic cleansing policy against our nation in the occupied territories, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.

Actual international view as a result of the occupation of Azerbaijani territories

Actual international view as a result of the occupation of Azerbaijani territories1. Armed aggression and occupation by Armenia inflicted serious material and moral damage.

 

20 percent of Azerbaijani territory including Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding provinces has been under Armenian occupation for about 25 years. As a result of forced migration and ethnic cleansing policies of Armenia, over a million Azerbaijani citizens became IDPs and refugees, facing grave human rights violations. Social and economic infrastructure of Azerbaijan in the occupied territories became destructed, thus resulting in serious social, economic and environmental losses. The damaged incurred on cultural and historical heritage in the occupied territories cannot be measured in monetary terms.
