Asgarov said: “Our goal is that the NATO PA voices its attitude to this question. In fact, we achieved our goals in the committee for security and defense, we also wish that NATO PA, like other international organizations, expresses its position. This organization can give it a political assessment, because NATO is the only organization to control over security of the Euroathlantic region.”
