Baku. Anakhanum Idoyatova – APA. “The Ukrainian crisis and the Nagorno Karabakh conflict are different issues. Official Moscow annexed Crimea to Russia and this happened with violation of international law”, said the President of Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe Anne Brasseur at the press conference while answering the question “Why is the decision of PACE on depriving Russia of voting right not adopted against Armenia?”.
She noted that though the PACE deprived Russia of voting right after annexation of Crimea, Russia has not withdrawn from the PACE: “We kept opportunity of continuation of discussions. We can not find solution ways without Russia”.
Regarding Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict, Anne Brasseur noted that the Ukrainian crisis and the Nagorno Karabakh conflict are different issues and they support territorial integrity of all member states.
“Main difference is annexation of Crimea to Russia. However, it does not mean that the situation in Nagorno Karabakh is acceptable”, she said.
