 Azerbaijani "black lists" are no longer bothering the European officials. Vice-President of the European Parliament Jacek Protasiewicz, who visited the NKR, does not worry about the prospect of getting included in Azerbaijan's "black list" either. Jacek Protasiewicz, told journalists after his meeting with Artsakh Republic President Bako Sahakyan in Stepanakert, in 22 June, Karabakhi mass media reported. 
"I have been in politics for 30 years and I have worked in different regimes, when I could even be put into jail. But I have my own principles, which guide me, and in this regard nothing bothers me" - said the Vice-President of the European Parliament.

When replying to the journalists' statements that the Madrid principles are unacceptable for the people of Artsakh, the Vice President of the European Parliament pointed out that the people will be given an opportunity to express their opinion and then the European Parliament will make the relevant conclusions.  He said that that democracy demands that, because the proposed versions of the final solution should first of all be acceptable for the people.  Protasiewicz also pointed out that the settlement of the Karabakh problem is of great importance to the European Parliament, because the Euronest cannot operate to the full extent due to the unresolved problems.        

When asked if Europe can influence Azerbaijan in the current situation when Azerbaijan is piling on the pressure on the Line of Contact, Protasiewicz said that everything possible is being done within the Eastern Partnership to resolve the problems.
