Azerbaijan demands Armenia's expulsion from NATO PA

Azerbaijan demands Armenia's expulsion from the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. As APA reports,  Head of the Azerbaijani Delegation to the NATO PA Ziyafat Asgarov presented an appropriate proposal at the ongoing 86th Rose Roth Seminar of the NATO PA entitled "South Caucasus: Challenges and opportunities" in Baku.  Asgarov substantiated the proposal with alleged "terrorist attacks committed by Armenians in Azerbaijan." He claims that cooperation of such "a terrorist state with NATO is unacceptable". 

"NATO cut off the relations with Russia and deprived Russia of the right to vote in NATO PA for two years. And why isn't Armenia withdrawn from the assembly in exchange for the occupation and terrorism? Therefore we demand from NATO PA to clarify this issue once and for all," he said.  Head of Armenia's Delegation to NATO PA Koryun Nahapetyan and Secretary of Heritage opposition party faction Tevan Poghosyan represent Armenia at NATO PA's Rose-Roth seminar in Baku on 16-18 June.  The Armenian parliamentarians agreed to travel to Baku only after official security guarantees by Azerbaijan. Head of the Armenian Center for Regional Studies Richard Giragosian is also in Baku to attend the event.

The activists picketed The Four Seasons Hotel where the Armenian parliamentarians have arrived at. However, the police dispersed the protest and confiscated anti-Armenian banners.
