The letter says:


“Despite several election violations, the international observation missions evaluated the presidential elections held on February 18th 2013 in the aggressor state Armenia as “democratic elections” in the light of democracy, human rights and rule of law. All this despite the fact that the country in question has been occupying the territory of Azerbaijan for almost 25 years, condones the daily violation of basic human rights of all citizens who are or should be resident in the occupied territories, and with its general behavior, denial of the crime of genocide in Khojaly, February 1992, and outright disregard for democratic values is in blatant breach of most of the principles and values of both the European Union and Council of Europe.”
