The Azerbaijani President`s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov has said official Yerevan ignores all calls and remains loyal to its non-constructive position.

“In response to the calls of the presidents of the Minsk Group co-chairing countries, Azerbaijan ceased fire. But Armenia disregards these calls and continues its attacks,” he told Anadolu Agency. “It is the provocative action of the Armenian armed forces that prompted the recent clashes on the line of contact. As always, with these provocative attacks the Armenian armed forces attempted to spoil positive steps taken by the co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group in order to solve the problem.”

U.S. affirms support for Azerbaijan`s territorial integrity


The U.S. affirmed support for Azerbaijan`s territorial integrity, said US Department of State spokesperson John Kirby following a meeting between Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “The two discussed efforts to resolve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Secretary Kerry affirmed U.S. support for Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity and underscored our concern about violence along the Line of Contact and the international border. He emphasized our commitment to working with the sides to reach a comprehensive settlement based on the principles of international law, the UN Charter, and the Helsinki Final Act,” said Kirby.

“Secretary Kerry commended Azerbaijan`s role in European energy security as a leader in developing the Southern Gas Corridor. He expressed U.S. support for Azerbaijan`s efforts to become a regional trade hub. He also thanked President Aliyev for Azerbaijan`s contributions to NATO`s mission in Afghanistan, its support for peacekeeping operations, and its important counterterrorism role. On democracy and human rights issues, Secretary Kerry welcomed Azerbaijan`s recent positive steps,” he added.


MP Elkhan Suleymanov has addressed a letter to the US Congressman


Congressman Mr. Adam Schiff,

Member of House of Representatives of USA Senate

Mister Schiff,

Expressing your opinion to resolutions on Azerbaijan discussed during PACE winter session during your recent interview to “Horizon live” show by Mr. Ara Khachatryan, editor-in-chief of Armenian “Asbarez” newspaper, you stress that the resolution is a one-sided document supporting Azerbaijan. You call the resolution on the “Escalation of violence in Nagorno Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan” by British MP Mr. Robert Walter as a destructive document; state the special role of yours and Ms. Victoria Nuland, Assistant to USA Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, on the refusal of the document, and express that the resolution on water was approved.

Elkhan Suleymanov: PACE Officially Identifies Armenia as Occupying Power of Nagorno-Karabakh and Adjacent Areas of Azerbaijan, Requests Immediate Withdrawal of Armenian Forces from the Region


What follows is a recent, firsthand account of new and historically significant developments at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. We are pleased at the opportunity to carry this important recollection here.

(Strasbourg, January 30, 2016) Two draft reports, related to Nagorno-Karabakh and other territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia, were debated and put to the vote during the winter part-session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg. Both reports were the result of motions tabled by Elkhan Suleymanov, who has been fighting in Strasbourg for two years to have the forgotten issue of occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and adjacent territories back on the international agenda.

The first draft report put the focus on the escalation of violence at the contact line on the front with Armenian armed forces, and the second emphasized the humanitarian crisis Azerbaijani citizens are facing in regions close to the Sarsang reservoir, as these Azerbaijani citizens are being deliberately deprived of water.
