Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan Hikmet Hajiyev told RIA Novosti that Azerbaijan has named the French Senate’s resolution on Nagorno-Karabakh ‘an ordinary piece of paper’.
“First of all, we would like to emphasize that this resolution is nothing but an ordinary piece of paper for Azerbaijan. This piece of paper adopted for narrow political ambitions is not only a gross violation of international law, the United Nations Charter and the relevant Resolutions of the United Nations Security Council, but also entails serious questions regarding the intentions and objective actions of France as a co-chairing country of the OSCE Minsk Group and as a Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council,” Hajiyev said.
With an absolute majority of votes, the French Senate has adopted a resolution calling on the French government to recognize the independence of Nagorno-Karabakh. The document is advisory.
