Armenian delegation boycotted the meeting, APA’s European bureau reports.
Chairman of the Subcommittee, Spanish MP Jordi Chukla i Costa and members of the Azerbaijani delegation Samed Seyidov and Sabir Hajiyev attended the meeting. Seyidov said they decided to inform the PACE Bureau about absence of the Armenian parliamentarians in the meeting. “We decided to inform the Bureau about the absence of the Armenian parliamentarians. I raised the concrete issue. I told them “we and you also witness that Armenia violates the decision unanimously adopted by the PACE Bureau and doesn’t participate in the meeting. It means that you use at least double standards when the Bureau raises the issues concerning the violation of decisions on Azerbaijan. They had to agree with that because they had no other way. There will be next meeting of the Subcommittee and if Armenians does not participate again, it will be their question. With their absence they violate the PACE Bureau’s decision. This is very serious violation”.
Armenian parliamentarians boycotted the Subcommittee’s meetings during the spring and summers sessions too.
