British Conservative MP David Davies condemned lack of the Western countries’ strong support, which is provided for the territorial integrity of Ukraine, regarding Azerbaijan and existence of double standard policy in the Nagorno-Karabakh problem.
The European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) said that commenting on Ukraine crisis, Davies issued a statement supporting Azerbaijan’s position on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
The statement says that the recent developments in Ukraine once again showed the importance of stability for Europe: “Russia’s annexation of Crime resulted in support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine by the Western leaders.”
It also reveals our double standard approach towards Azerbaijan: “Nagorno-Karabakh is part of internationally recognized sovereign territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan, but we don’t see strong support of the same leaders like in Ukrainian issue. The United Kingdom is the largest investor in Azerbaijan thanks to BP, we have a lot to lose in the case of the escalation of the conflict. Now it is high time to pay more attention to the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, peaceful settlement of the conflict within the international law and return of hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons to their home.”
