The resolution passed by the German Bundestag (parliament) on recognizing the events of 1915 as the “Armenian genocide” doesn’t serve peace, security and stability, Novruz Mammadov, deputy head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration and chief of the Administration's foreign relations department told reporters on Friday.
“When commenting on the German parliament’s decision on the “Armenian genocide,” we need to think about why it happened, what its essence, and whether the steps taken around the world as to these events are just or not,” Mammadov said.
He noted that in the current situation such steps lead to the further aggravation of international relations.
“These steps do not serve peace, security and stability. This is a wrong policy,” the top official said. “Today you have listened to President Ilham Aliyev. I think that the foundation of this policy was laid with the approval of Amendment 907 against Azerbaijan made by the US Congress in the early 1990s. And this too is a very ridiculous question. Territories of Azerbaijan were occupied, Azerbaijan became isolated, and as a result this anti-Azerbaijani amendment was approved," he said.
According to Mammadov, about the events that happened 100 years ago, scientists and historians should conduct a detailed study.
"With regard to this issue, Turkey has put forward a remarkable proposal. The decision should be made after a detailed scientific investigation. Politicizing all the processes in the current situation is not the right option.
Turkey will not agree to this, either,” Azerbaijan’s top official stressed.
