Germany-Azerbaijan Coordination Center sends letter of protest to Bundestag
Baku, Sept 30 (AZERTAC). The illegal visit of German Bundestag member Jürgen Klimke to Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region occupied by Armenia caused concern of Azerbaijanis living in Germany.
The Coordination Center for Azerbaijanis in Germany has sent a letter of protest to the Bundestag in this regard: “This step of German Bundestag member Jürgen Klimke contradicts to the resolution adopted by the United Nations and European Parliament and supporting the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan Republic. Nagorno-Karabakh is an integral part of Azerbaijan Republic and all visits to this region should be coordinated by the relevant bodies of Azerbaijan.”
The letter further notes that Jürgen Klimke’s illegal visit to Nagorno-Karabakh is also contrary to the policy of the Federal Republic of Germany recognizing Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity: “His meeting with the leader of the unrecognized so-called republic can be assessed not only as the violation of the international law and justification of actions of the aggressor, but also as a step taken against the policy pursued by the European Union and international forces towards peaceful resolution of the conflict. This action aggravates already difficult relations in the South Caucasus and harms the peace talks.”
On behalf of the Azerbaijanis living in Germany, the Center emphasizes the importance of preventing such provocative actions in the future and considers that such control will contribute to further developing Azerbaijan’s relations with the European countries, especially with Germany.
