Baku, July 9 AZERTAC
British MPs regarded the judgment of Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights on the case "Chiragov and others v. Armenia" as the triumph of justice.
British MP Stephen Hepburn in request to the European Azerbaijan Society (TEAS) said the Armenian government should benefit from the opportunities created by this judgment and admit its role in the occupation of Azerbaijani territories.
"They should also start serious negotiations in order to achieve a diplomatic breakthrough after 20 years of stagnation, the MP added.
Baroness Zahida Manzoor said the ECHR judgment had shattered the myth that the war is being waged by the Armenians that are local population of Nagorno-Karabakh: "This is occupation of Azerbaijan's sovereign territory by Armenia. There is a need to demonstrate honest approach to negotiations for finding a peaceful solution to the conflict and finally make a progress."
Along with the approval of the violation of three special articles of the European Convention on Human Rights, the Court also rejected the appeal of the government of Armenia which claims that it has no effective control over Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding districts.
