Azerbaijani MP: Armenia must stand trial

Azerbaijani MP: Armenia must stand trial



Armenia, which continues its occupation policy, must stand trial, said Azerbaijani MP Samad Seyidov.

He made the remarks addressing the presentation of the project titled “Study of legal aspects of recognition of crimes of genocide and ethnic cleansing at international level.”

Seyidov noted that the negotiations on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict settlement continues.

He said that Armenian officials who advocate destructive position in Nagorno-Karabakh [conflict] are active members of international organizations, they use Europe’s funds and continue expansionist policy.

Seyidov said it is necessary to sue all criminals after Azerbaijani lands are liberated, either through negotiations or in any other way.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
