Turkey has “rejected” the Belgian House of Representatives’ resolution passed on December 18 condemning Azerbaijan’s resumption of hostilities towards Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) on September 27, 2020. It urges Brussels to “adopt measures to prevent the plight of those affected by the conflict and to negotiate an agreement that acknowledges the people’s right to self-determination.” The resolution also condemned Turkey’s role in the war.
Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hami Aksoy said in comments to Anadolu Agency that “resolution 1597 related to Nagorno-Karabakh adopted by Belgium’s House of Representatives is inaccurate, false and follows an Armenian agenda.”
“Resolution 1597 is neither historical, legal nor compatible with the facts in the field. We reject this decision, which includes baseless allegations and accusations against Turkey.”
