The European Parliament adopted a legally non-binding resolution calling for EU sanctions against Azerbaijan

The European Parliament calls on EU countries to impose sanctions against Azerbaijan on the basis of human rights violations in Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as repeated violations of the ceasefire by Baku. The corresponding resolution was adopted by European deputies at today's plenary session in Strasbourg.

491 MPs voted in support of the document, 9 voted against it, and another 36 abstained.



Regarding the measures that, according to MEPs, the European Union should take in relation to Baku, they include the introduction of personal sanctions against members of the Azerbaijani government responsible for crimes in Karabakh, the suspension of negotiations on updating the partnership agreement between the EU and Azerbaijan, a reduction in volumes, or even complete cessation of purchases of Azerbaijani oil and gas.

Tellingly, the European Parliament accused the EC and, in particular, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, of ignoring the EP’s warning about the deteriorating situation in Nagorno-Karabakh. In addition, the deputies called for the establishment of an international presence in the region under the auspices of the UN.

Finally, the European Parliament reminded the Azerbaijani authorities that they are responsible for the safety and respect for the rights of Armenians living on the territory of NK.

It is worth recalling that EP resolutions are purely advisory in nature and have no legal force. However, other European institutions must listen to them.

      I’m wondering who actually complies with all these resolutions, declarations, recommendations and other beautiful words from all these PACE, E.K., E.P., ICC, UN and other impotent organizations???? Even NATO cannot force 2% of the GDP of the gang countries to be brought into the dorms.

        Once upon a time, at a similar talking shop in the past, they voted for a resolution equating the crimes of Nazism and communism. Our government, the delegation that went there to hang out beautifully, then had not yet received a sluggish slap on the lips from their colleagues as they do now, which is why they have now repainted themselves as patriots and remember their sickle-bearing grandfathers, they said that all this does not oblige anyone to anything. As a result, this equalization became law in many countries, to the surprise of the same representatives of our authorities.

        Well, how do you need to justify your existence as some kind of governing body, decision-making body, etc. The places there are warm, for the herd's approval or disapproval money drips, and if you lobby someone's interests, you'll see a lot of money will fly in.
        PS For me, the most striking example of such a gathering is FIFA. The assholes sit there and come up with the rules in the style of a fifth wheel in a car. Pure playing time, kicking outs, interpretation of artificial offside, etc. etc., in short, delirium caused by temperature and alcohol. It won’t necessarily be accepted; they stupidly rush the innovation into the conditionally third women’s league of the Netherlands and shelve it. But the appearance of work is obvious. If you hold the World Cup in Qatar, you’ll see that the sheikhs are giving you a hint of a comfortable old age.

        I think the whole issue is in the Zangezur corridor.
        Some say that the United States wants to block it so that China does not have access to the EU. The Sultan was going to dig new canals for the Silk Road, as far as I understand.
        Others say that the United States needs him to get into Kazakhstan.
        The future will show who is right. But the interested parties, in both cases, are superpowers. And here small countries will not find it enough. hi

            Well, here decision after decision comes.

            Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Tehran is categorically against the so-called proposed Zangezur Corridor, which seeks to link the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan, bordering Turkey, with the country's main territory.
            Raisi also emphasized that the Zangezur corridor is a platform for NATO presence in the region and a threat to the national security of all countries in the region.
            Raisi made the announcement in separate meetings with visiting officials from Armenia and Azerbaijan.


            As for the auspices of the UN, nothing will come of it without the PRC and the Russian Federation.

        Good evening. Azerbaijan is monitoring this process and believe me, Azerbaijan does not care about these sanctions. Why? When the Armenians begin to respect their own sanctions and resolutions, then we will too. Back in 93, the UN, 4 resolutions, for 30 years almost the Armenians did not care about them, but why should we be so worried when we have Russia and Turkey and many others behind us?

          Thank you for such kind words about our president. he's really great. he kept his father's word. HIS father promised that we would return to Karabakh as owners. When we returned Shusha, there were events there, and at these events the voice of his father and his promise were staged. He shed tears when he heard his father’s voice, but for that he said: Father, I kept your promise! Ilham Aliyev is handsome. He is a real leader. He has a huge reputation in Azerbaijan. He himself does not throw words into thin air. Always keeps his words

            Nagorno-Karabakh Armenians

            THE WORD IS ON MOUNTAIN - there is no such name. There is Karabakh. The word NAGORNY is a Russian word that was added in the 20th century. The name of the region is KARABAKH.

            and there is no concept of KARABAKH ARMENIANS. They weren't the only ones living there. Azerbaijanis and Udins and whoever lived there lived there. Armenians are one of the ethnic groups that live in Karabakh.

                Karabakh is a ballast for the development of Armenia. He didn't pass, but lost. To fulfill Soros's task, there must be a war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. If Russia protects the Armenians (that is, it will fight for the Armenians), that’s great, but if not, that’s also great, there is a reason to limit Russia in Armenia. Only this treacherous movement began not during the time of Pashinyan, but earlier under Serge. Pashinyan simply got rid of the ballast and so he does everything that the people want. At the beginning of his career, he told the people, Serge wanted to surrender the lands around Karabakh, but what about the people there? They shouted that not an inch of land, but the Minister of Defense said a new war, new territories. Only after that he went to Shusha and said a signature expression there, thereby signing over the fate of Karabakh by saying KARABAKH IS ARMENIA, PERIOD. This was a declaration of war. Any outcome of the war is a victory for him. That's why people have chosen him for the 4th time so far. Why if he is a traitor? Armenians in general have about 60-70K maximum personnel. Of these, 2020-8K died in 10 and, according to theory, 1k3 should be wounded...about 30K and 10K were deserters, by their own admission. They don't rent like that. They lose so cowardly.

      I don’t understand the logic of the Euro-Geans - officially Karabakh is the territory of Azerbaijan, which is recognized even by Armenia itself. It seems like no one forcibly drove the Armenians out of there; they left of their own free will. What then is the essence of the claims??

        Presence was important to them. The French and Germans wanted to enter the region with a limited contingent, but Azerbaijan broke their wishes with the permission of Russia. So they get angry. Now they will look for a new reason to show off, but I think there are also enough alternative moves on our part.

        the trouble is that, as in the politics of the USA, and in the politics of the EUROZONE, there are pro-Azerbaijani countries, such as Hungary, Italy, Britain, Albania, Bulgaria, which openly pursue a pro-Azerbaijani policy. Add here the Jewish lobby. So people in Azerbaijan clearly know that there can be no legal claims against Aliyev. He did everything clearly. There are 4 UN resolutions where the Armenians were told to get out of Karabakh, everyone with weapons. With this he shuts up many in the Eurozone.

      Well, okay, they banned buying from Russia, now they will ban it from Azerbaijan. Then Turkmenistan will violate human rights - they will be prohibited from buying from Turkmenistan. Then in Qatar they will burn the rainbow flag and stone a homosexual - they will ban buying from Qatar. Then the SA will stop anything intolerant and they will prohibit buying from the SA. Algeria will be banned because it does not want to be a slave of Europe...
      AND? Who will be worse off? All those “punished” will be left with gas, which will be redirected to other places - and the brave punishers will actually freeze and be covered with ice in their apartments this time.

      Timeline of ethnic cleansing
      Azerbaijanis in Zangezur in December 1917 - August 1918.

      In the first section of the Zangezur district, the Armenians destroyed 15 villages and killed 625 people.

      The Armenian army under the command of Andranik invaded Zangezur. By the end of October, 115 villages were devastated, 7700 Muslims were killed, 2500 were wounded, and 50 people were expelled from their homes.

      26.11.1918/XNUMX/XNUMX: Armenians destroyed Muslim villages in Meghri:
      Legvaz, Tey, Mulk, Vartanazor 1 and Vartanazor 2 and cut out 200
      civilians.

      December 1918: Dashnaks destroyed more than 100 villages in the Kafan district of Zangezur district. More than 40 thousand of the population of these villages were expelled.

      20.12.1918/4/XNUMX: At the XNUMXth meeting of the ADR parliament, the presiding officer
      G. B. Agayev read out the text of the first request: “Recently, according to received information, Andranik, together with a detachment subordinate to him, having crossed the border of Azerbaijan, has been committing atrocities in the Shusha, Zangezur and Dzhevanshir districts, ruining a lot of villages, exterminating the population and subjecting them to disasters and all kinds of hardships..."
      At the meeting, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the ADR F.Kh Khoysky stated “... Andranik, taking advantage of the fact that the Azerbaijani government was busy with the Baku operation, continued to commit atrocities in Zangezur, trying to cleanse this area of ​​the Muslim element, and for this purpose put to fire and sword those located there defenseless Muslim villages." He also stated that Andranik’s plan is to “cleanse” Zangezur and Shusha from the Muslim population and tear off these pieces from the living body of Azerbaijan.
