 Belgian MP calls for international pressure on Armenia over minefield maps

The international community should put serious pressure on Armenia refusing to provide Azerbaijan with maps of mined areas in Karabakh, and Baku should take a legal action against Yerevan, Belgian MP Sevket Temiz exclusively told AzVision.az.  

The lawmaker underscored the need to raise the issue of minefield maps at the OSCE level. “This issue, which is now a serious problem, should be raised in the Minsk Group and the United Nations,” he said.

He noted that Russia, as a state which has undertaken a peacekeeping mission, is responsible for certain problems in the post-war period, and must fulfill its obligations.

The Belgian MP pledged he will stand by Azerbaijan in the post-war period and will spare no efforts to convey Azerbaijan’s just cause to the world community.

“Azerbaijan has already restored its territorial integrity and launched great restoration and reconstruction work. Unfortunately, there are many minefields that hinder the speedy implementation of this work. Armenia, by refusing to share minefield maps, is not only posing a risk to civilians, but also hindering the restoration process,” he added.    

MP Temiz wished Azerbaijan a successful completion of the large-scale construction work.
