He stressed that Baku strongly condemns the European Parliament’s resolution dated 10 September 2015.
The document which is biased and destructive in nature damages the relations between Azerbaijan and the EU, also is a serious impediment for further prospects of cooperation. The hurried adoption of the resolution at the plenary session without holding relevant discussions in appropriate committees, as pointed out by some members of the European Parliament, was accompanied by a number of procedural shortcomings.
The resolution includes full of distorted information about the human rights situation in Azerbaijan, deliberately politicizes individual criminal cases and in contrast to their true essence puts forward unfounded claims, Mammad-Guliyev stressed.
