Azerbaijani MFA responds to European Parliament member who visited Nagorno-Karabakh
"The anti-Azerbaijan statements of European Parliament member Jaromír Štětina, who went on a trip to Nagorno-Karabakh, is aimed at deepening national and religious discord,” Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hikmet Hajiyev said of Štětina’s statements on the criminal case initiated against him.
Hajiyev noted that Štětina, with his activities beyond morality, acts as a propagandist of the illegal regime.
In the Czech Republic, of which Štětina is a citizen, one would get 10 to 18 years in prison for this type of acts, he added.
Hajiyev noted that Azerbaijan, relying on national and international law, including bilateral, interstate agreements, will continue to legally prosecute such MPs as Jaromír Štětina and Frank Engel.
