According to him, NATO PA meetings are held four times a year.
“We have very good cooperation. Azerbaijani delegation almost attends all sessions of NATO PA and Rose-Roth seminar. We are trying to express our views on Azerbaijan. During this event we will mainly focus on Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict. President of NATO Parliamentary Assembly Karl Lamers also touched on this issue during our meeting. NATO member states are interested in the ongoing processes in Azerbaijan. There are especially questions concerning the struggle against corruption. Of course, we answered the related questions,” he said.

Ziyafat Asgarov does not consider it right that NATO is not involved in the solution of Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
“We raise this issue at the plenary meetings of the NATO. Of course, NATO does not deal with the solution of these conflicts. Minsk Group is dealing with Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict. NATO does not interfere attributing to this. But we consider that this is not a right approach. Armenia has occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s territory, we have over one million refugees. NATO can not stand aside from the solution of this problem. When necessary NATO immediately obtains mandate and carries out operations in Libya together with the UN. But they forget that four resolutions of the UN Security Council on Nagorno Karabakh conflict are not fulfilled. We talked with Mr. Lamers about it. We will raise the issue at this seminar. Our aim is to draw attention again to the injustice related to the occupied Azerbaijani territories,” he said.
