The European Parliament is not responsible for the visits of some parliamentarians to Nagorno-Karabakh that took place on their own initiatives, said David McAllister, MEP from Germany, Chair of the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee.

 

He made the remarks at a briefing held in Azerbaijan’s parliament on May 22, APA reported.

 

“Some MEPs paid visits to Nagorno-Karabakh on their own initiatives and the European Parliament is not responsible for it. As you know, the European Parliament didn’t recognize the “referendum” held in Nagorno-Karabakh on February 20 this year,” said McAllister, adding. “I would like to note that freedom of expression is important for us. Everyone can express their opinions. Thus, we cannot interfere in the actions of these MEPs.”
