Azerbaijan welcomes OSCE PA president’s statement

Baku: The Permanent Mission of Azerbaijan to the OSCE made a statement praising the OSCE PA President Ilkka Kanerva’s appeal to the Permanent Council.

At the meeting of the Permanent Council held on November 19, OSCE PA President Ilkka Kanerva urged the reopening of the OSCE Mission in Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan values the parliamentary dimension of cooperation within the OSCE area, with the view that it can make significant input to building trust and confidence among the States, said the statement.

“It was within this understanding that we successfully hosted the Annual Meeting of the Assembly in Baku in 2014 and expressed our readiness to further deepen cooperation with the Parliamentary Assembly. In a similar vein, we extended invitation for the Parliamentary Assembly to observe the November 1 parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, the Assembly rejected this invitation of the OSCE participating State and instead, opted for following the ODIHR’s unilateral decision taken in violation of its mandate. We regret over this decision of the Parliamentary Assembly, which does not contribute to dialogue and cooperation that it stands for,” said the permanent mission.

Also, the permanent mission noted that Azerbaijan commends Assembly’s consistent position with regard to the earliest resolution of the protracted conflicts in the OSCE area on the basis of sovereignty and territorial integrity of the states concerned.
