Baku. Elbrus Seyfullaev – APA. Azerbaijani Parliament has released the full text of appeal to US Congress. According to APA, the passage of the draft resolution on the so-called Armenian genocide in the House Committee of Foreign Affairs has caused great concern and rage.

“This unfair judgment, which is apparent neglect to the historical realities and sacrifice the interests for the Armenian lobby, can be characterized as a step that could create new problems in Asia Minor and Southern Caucasus. We face with an attempt to turn remote historical event, which up to present has not been completely investigated and has not been objectively appraised, into a subject of the political gamble to justify groundless claims of the Armenian nationalists to the neighboring states. The researchers, who remain loyal to the scientific truth, including western scientists, have proved a long ago the nonexistence of any «genocide of Armenians» in the history. Fiction about «genocide of Armenians» - is the outcome of sick imagination based on false documents. The Turkish government has opened the Ottoman Empire-related archives and has invited all researchers, including the Armenian scientist, to get acquainted with the historical documents of the beginning of the XX century. Besides it, Turkish government suggests to establish the joint commission of historians, but the Armenian side rejects judicious scientific polemic thereby the Armenian side openly shows the real face of those who disseminate a legend about «genocide of Armenians».

The appeal also says that turning down this proposal by Armenian nationalists shows that they are not interested in unveiling the historical truth, and, on the contrary, they are interested in falsification and concealment of the facts: «The objective researches show that early in the XX century the Armenian nationalists unleashed a terror and perpetrate genocide in territory of modern Turkish Republic and Caucasus, as a result more than 2 million innocent Turks and Azerbaijanis were killed. Over the past 18 years Azerbaijani parliament repeatedly appealed to the international organizations and to the parliaments of the world, including US Congress, concerning the crimes like genocide, which Armenian nationalists committed to Azerbaijanis last century, particularly for recognition the genocide committed on February 26, 1992, against the civilians of Azerbaijan city Hojali. Unfortunately, so far USA has not appraised these terrible events, which occurred in the face of all civilized world».

«A deliberate pro-armenian position is an apparent evidence of the fact that Armenian nationalists’ far-fetched claims on the "genocide" of the beginning of the XX century are accepted but the occupational war against Azerbaijanis is neglected. In such conditions Armenian Republic declares that it’s supporter of establishment of the stability and mutual understanding in the region but in reality, it keeps on holding under occupation 20% of Azerbaijan’s lands and having sentenced one million of Azerbaijanis to the life of refugees and IDPs, Armenia continues gross violation the norms and principles of the international law. There is thought, which got implanted into Azerbaijani society – “the biggest hindrance for settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijan, Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is application of double standards by world powers, the invader is not named as invader and left unpunished, moreover the occupant is equated to the victim”. Unfair judgment made in the committee House of Representatives of US Congress, the country which is the co-chair of OSCE Minsk group, engaged in conflict solution, hinders to the attainment of peace in the region and can destroy the positive results, reached till now in the course of negotiations. However, we are sure that this decision, which contradicts US interests in the region and damages USA-Turkey and USA-Azerbaijan strategic partnership, will be turned down by the Congress. We hope that US government, which has an image of the democratic country, will do the utmost not to admit passage, which is able to harm to American-Turkish and American-Azerbaijan relations».
