Baku. Mubariz Aslanov – APA. “The order signed by President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. Ilham Aliyev on “Measures to provide security on the front line between Azerbaijani and Armenian armed forces” is of great importance in the political and military points of view. The political significance of the document lies in the fact that Azerbaijan’s position on the Karabakh issue is firm and unequivocal”, said Chairman of the Azerbaijani Parliament's Committee on Law Policy and State Building Ali Huseynli, APA reports quoting the official website of New Azerbaijan Party.
He mentioned that despite the peaceful talks on the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, the recent tension on the frontline showed once more that the problem is very serious. According to Huseynli, if the talks do not bear fruit and our country’s territorial integrity is not ensured, Azerbaijan will liberate its occupied lands by military means on the basis of international law. “As for the military significance of the order signed by the Head of state, the document includes important issues. In order to increase awareness of the people, it is very important to establish patrol units of volunteers. This will improve the preparation of people of the country being the state of war for the condition", he said.
The Chairman of the Committee also said that to draft a new edition of the “Martial Law” adopted in 1994 is today’s demand too. Stressing the sensitiveness of the issues on the news in the mass media outlets regarding the situation on the frontline, Huseynli said that the order of the President envisages important points related to this issue. “The provision in the order on citizens’ compliance with the law “On the state secret” is of great importance. I think that implementation of the issues put forward in this order as well as the recommendations is important not only for the state authorities but for entire people as well. And the duty of us, the members of the Parliament is to promote the issues arising from this order”, Huseynli added.
