YEREVAN, MARCH 1, NOYAN TAPAN. Over the past years Azerbaijan has
increased its anti-Armenian agitation and does not miss the chance to
present Armenia as an aggressor from the PACE tribune. Member of the
Armenian delegation in PACE, Secretary of the RA National Assembly
Bargavach Hayastan (Prosperous Armenia) faction Aram Safarian stated
at a March 1 press conference. According to him, a country carrying
on negotiations and striving for a mutually coordinated settlement
variant should not aggravate the situation and instigate interethnic
hostility. However Azerbaijan, as A. Safarian concluded, proves
with its conduct that it is not going to solve the Nagorno Karabakh
problem in a civilized way and wants to resume the operations. However,
according to the BH figure, the prevailing majority of PACE deputies
considers that the problem cannot be solved through a war.

A. Safarian also mentioned that at the last PACE winter session
in response to Azeri delegates' allegations that the parliamentary
elections to be held on May 23 in Karabakh are illegal he proposed
PACE deputies visiting Karabakh on an observation mission during
elections and only then making conclusions.
