On January 26 the participants of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe winter session have rejected a resolution on ‘The escalation of violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan,’ Turan News Agency reported.

The resolution was rejected by the majority of votes with 66 for and 71 against. The document was rejected by a number of MPs from France, Hungary, Sweden and Germany. They said that the document was one-sided and lacked balance. They also noted that Azerbaijan has recently made the news as democratic rights violator.

The rejected resolution called for the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces and other irregular forces from Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied territories of Azerbaijan. It also urged the governments of both Azerbaijan and Armenia to refrain from using military forces and called on the OSCE to establish an international peacekeeping force to maintain security in Nagorno-Karabakh and ensure the safe return of refugees and displaced persons home.
