Prospects of Georgia's NATO membership cause a dispute between Armenian and Azerbaijani parliamentarians

A dispute occurred between the Azerbaijani and Armenian MPs at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's Seminar in Baku, APA reports. The source says that Georgia's NATO membership was discussed at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly's 86th Rose-Roth Seminar titled "South Caucasus: Challenges and Opportunities".

Head of the Armenian Delegation Koryun Nahapetyan said that he supports Georgia's NATO membership.  "We are speaking about stability, partnership here, but Azerbaijan calls us invaders. It doesn't serve the stability. We want stability, not a war."

Member of the Azerbaijani delegation to NATO PA Gudrat Hasanguliyev accused the Armenian parliamentarian of hypocrisy: "As far as you need to be dishonest to claim stability after occupying the territory of the neighboring country. How can you talk about the stability? I declare once again that Armenia has no political will. Since the public execution in the parliament in 1999, Armenians have been suffering "animal fear" of Russian intelligence".

Afterwards, member of the Armenian Delegation Tevan Pogosyan pointed out: "You said Armenia suffers an 'animal fear'. In response, I say that the cause of Armenia's political and economic weakness is the blockade of Armenia by Azerbaijan". 

To note, the members of the Armenian delegation were Koryun Nahapetyan, Head of the Parliamentary Commission for Defense, National Security and Internal Affairs, Tevan Poghosyan, Secretary of the opposition Heritage Faction, and Richard Giragosian, Head of the Regional Studies Center. The delegation has visited Baku to participate in NATO's Rose-Roth seminar only after receiving official guarantees of their security from Azerbaijan. In Baku the Armenian delegation was "welcomed" by protest actions, however, the police dispersed the demonstrators.
