Azerbaijan Refused to Recognize a Resolution of the French Senate on Nagorno-Karabakh
OREANDA-NEWS. Baku considers the resolution of the French Senate urging the government to recognize Nagorno-Karabakh as an ordinary piece of paper. This was stated by Hikmet Hajiyev, Foreicn Policy Advisor to the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.
“First of all, we would like to emphasize that this resolution for Azerbaijan is nothing more than an ordinary piece of paper,” Hajiyev told reporters of RIA Novosti news agency. He called the resolution a piece of paper adopted in the name of narrow political ambitions, along with a gross violation of international law, the United Nations Charter and the decisions of the UN Security Council. Hajiyev believes that due to the intentions and activities of Paris as a co-chairing country of the Minsk Group of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and a permanent member of the UN Security Council, the document raises serious questions.
On November 25, the French Senate adopted a resolution with an absolute majority of votes calling on the Azerbaijani government to recognize the Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh. The document is advisory in nature. At the same time, the French Foreign Ministry refused to recognize the independence of the region.
