Statement of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the Kingdom of the Netherlands regarding the motion adopted by the House of Representatives of the Dutch Parliament on 25.05.2021
The Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the Kingdom of the Netherlands rejects the motion adopted on 25 May 2021by the House of Represenatives of the Dutch Parliament, initiated by the parliamentarians Segers and van der Staaij calling the Dutch Government to induce the Council to join the French President’s call to Azerbaijan to withdraw troops immediately from Armenia.
It should be noted that the above-mentioned motion aims to serve for the interests of Armenian lobby and hide the real and actual situation on the Azerbaijani-Armenian border.
Due to the occupation policy of the Republic of Armenia, state border between Armenia and Azerbaijan has not existed for the last 28 years.
Azerbaijan has liberated its internationally recognized territory from occupation in 2020, in accordance with the 4 resolutions of the United Nations Security Council.
With the end of Armenian occupation, the delimitation and demarcation work between the two countries were started for the first time after the collapse of Soviet Union.
Azerbaijan has announced multiple times that Azerbaijan has no claims to the territory of Armenia.
It should also be emphasized that member of governing political party of Armenia has acknowledged that up until today 7 villages of Azerbaijan, as well as 1 village of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan are still under occupation of Armenia.
Demarcation of the borders between two countries is an interstate issue and is regulated with interstate agreements. Interference of third parties to this process is unacceptable and can cause re-ignition of the conflict, which remains in the past.
It should be noted that demarcation of state borders is a long and complicated process and Azerbaijan refers to the international norms in this process.
