I cannot accept being treated as fascist by anybody, whatever his rank is in his country, member of the Armenian delegation at the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly, and opposition ARF Dashnaktsutyun Party MP Lilit Galstyan stated during the Assembly’s session in Baku.

“Armenia joined the Euronest family with the confidence that Eastern Partnership is a community where all members share equal responsibilities, principles, values, and which is most important respect fundamental principles of international law and fundamental freedoms.

We entered the Euronest family with the hope that jointly we can create a political climate where fruitful and constructive dialogue would be held based on understanding and respect.

Unfortunately, the morning session started with statements that not only did not provide the objective evaluation of the situation, but damages the negotiation process on the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, as well as the efforts of Euronest Parliamentary Assembly to create a political framework for cooperation and democratization of member countries.

As a member of the Dashnak party, founding member of the Socialists, I cannot accept being treated as fascist by anybody, whatever his rank is in his country, especially in a country where our socialist friends are arrested for their political views,” the Armenian MP noted in particular.

During the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly’s session on Tuesday, Azerbaijani president Ilham Aliyev had stunned the European MPs by making insulting remarks against the Armenians.
