of September 14, 2015 No. 1304-IVQR
In connection with the resolution of the European parliament of September 10, 2015
The resolution on Azerbaijan number 2915/2840 (RSP) adopted on September 10, 2015 by the European parliament demonstrates that the prejudiced ochernitelsky campaign, systematically and constantly carried out in this parliamentary organization against our country, accepted extremely offensive nature. This time under the pretext of human rights the political power supported by the people in Azerbaijan underwent to slanders and slander, abortive attempt to break the developing partnership of our country with the European Union and state members, to undermine the international authority of Azerbaijan and to isolate it from process of integration into the world was made.
It should be noted that from the date of the beginning of functioning of the European parliament since July of last year in new structure because of line item of management of this structure between it and Azerbaijan there was no official dialogue, mutual visits were not performed. Strangely enough, the management of the European parliament forbade official and unofficial trips of deputies to Azerbaijan. Thus, certain forces in the European parliament took consecutive steps for substitution of inter-parliamentary dialogue by the offensive monologue directed against Azerbaijan.
It is also necessary to emphasize that in the European parliament there are healthy forces provided by the deputies who are fairly belonging to Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, their voices are often not heard. Also the meeting where the prejudiced resolution against Azerbaijan was discussed was not exception, the lobbist parliamentary groups involved in corruption managed to achieve the dirty intentions. One of basic reasons is that heads of the European parliament, first of all, the chairman of structure M. Schultz close eyes to activities of selling groups, or perhaps and participate in these activities and patronize these structures.
The meeting of the European parliament revealed also the level of tolerance of many deputies, showed the jealous attitude towards the authority of Azerbaijan as secular state in this structure. During proceeding now in the territory of the European Union of migratory crisis of tendency of racism and xenophobia reached incredible level that quite logically interferes with accomplishment by the Union of the assumed international obligations. Besides, desire of some member countries of the European Union to grant shelter only to Christian refugees creates conditions for support of the European Union existing on space of ultralegal radical and islamofobsky political policy, and finally - for forming of discrimination system. The fact that similar tendencies found way to such international structure as the European parliament causes only regret. In such conditions instead of support of Azerbaijan which is showing example of tolerance in the world, became the advanced state in development of cross-cultural dialogue against it prejudiced resolutions are adopted that it is necessary to regard as promotion of racism and xenophobia on the European space, provocation against the traditional Islamic states gravitating to cooperation with the European Union.
At the same time, the European parliament, closing eyes to human rights violation in other State Parties of the program of the Eastern Partnership, on known only to it to the reasons is engaged in search of similar problems in Azerbaijan. It should be noted that the Republic of Armenia which, having broken all regulations and the principles of international law, occupied 20 percent of the territory of Azerbaijan turned 1 million Azerbaijanians into refugees and displaced persons, is the reason of mass violation of human rights and freedoms in the region, but this question still was never discussed in the European parliament. The European parliament which proclaimed human rights the supreme value for some reason did not consider it necessary to pay attention to aspect of human rights and humanitarian aspect of the Nagorno-Karabakh problem. On the other hand, though the European parliament in the documents refers to resolutions of the European Court of Human Rights, he, nevertheless, shows indifference to the resolution of this court of June 16, 2015 on case "Chiragov and others against Armenia", calling for recovery of the rights of the citizens of Azerbaijan injured with the armed aggression of Armenia against Azerbaijan.
There is no need to prove to someone that in Azerbaijan great job on ensuring human rights and fundamental freedoms is done that this work is continued and today. In the country there is no human rights activist or the journalist arrested for the professional activity. The demands about release of number of persons made in the resolution of the European parliament have no legal and political basis and shall be regarded as attempt of intervention in independent judicial system of Azerbaijan.
In the resolution of the European parliament appeals to Management of foreign policy activities of the European Union and member countries not to direct observer missions to the parliamentary elections which are coming on November 1, 2015 in Azerbaijan also take place. Similar appeals from the European parliament created by only 42 percent of votes of voters in the territory of state members of the Union are surprising. Unfortunately, the Bureau on democratic institutes and human rights of OSCE became the first organization which answered this appeal. The purpose is in obviously to call into question legitimacy of the parliamentary elections which are coming in Azerbaijan.
Everyone can be confident that the Azerbaijani state provided all conditions for democratic and transparent elections, necessary measures will be taken and from now on. The refusal of this or that international structure of observation of elections cannot call into question free and fair elections. The sovereignty carrier in Azerbaijan are the Azerbaijani people, and the decision on legitimacy of elections will be taken out by it.
Unfortunately, the relation of the European parliament to our country delivered under serious threat and cooperation between the European Union and Azerbaijan. So, as a result of the prejudiced resolutions adopted by still European parliament negotiations between the European Union and Azerbaijan on the associative agreement were interrupted.
Millie Majlis of the Azerbaijan Republic once again informs members of the European parliament that the Azerbaijan Republic, realizing unconditional benefits of democracy, will never descend from way of construction of the democratic, constitutional, secular state founded on respect for human rights and freedoms for development of cooperation with the international organizations in this area on the basis of equality, mutual respect and in the constructive course there is firm political will of the people and management of Azerbaijan.
Considering above-noted, Millie decides Majlis:
1. Demand from the European parliament to put end to destructive activities against the relations of the European Union and Azerbaijan, to refuse practice of adoption of prejudiced resolutions concerning our country under the influence of various forces referring to far-fetched accusations for activities against Azerbaijan.
2. Urge the European parliament to take constructive position on Azerbaijan and to show this approach by real steps.
3. Address constructive and healthy forces in the European parliament with appeal to make active efforts on prevention of the activities undermining authority of the European parliament.
