Baku. Ramil Mammadli - APA. Abolition of the French Senate's law
criminalizing the denial of made-up "Armenian genocide" by the French
Constitutional Council is a result of an approach to the issue with
a rational mind. It is clear that the clever people take seats at
the Constitutional Council.

They also understood that the adoption of such a law would damage
the state basis of France", first deputy chairman of Azerbaijani
parliament Ziyafet Asgarov told journalists, APA reports. Asgarov said
that the Senate's decision was first of all contrary to the French
Constitution and they expected such decision from the Constitutional
Council: "We thank people who had a role in adoption of this decision,
especially French MPs, who addressed the Constitutional Council".

Asked about the inactivity of the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs on
the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict and joining of other
international organizations to this process, Asgarov said: "The other
international organizations make comments on the issue only by their
statement. If the European Union wants to contribute to the fair
settlement of the conflict, so what prevents them? What prevents the
OSCE and Minsk Group co-chairs in the settlement of the conflict? They
must work for the solution of the problem. These organizations must
find a political courage and say that Armenia is an aggressor country
and occupied Azerbaijani lands, these lands must be liberated. Why
don't they want to solve the problem having enough legal documents?

Indeed, these questions must be addressed to them. If this organization
wants to be on agenda with its statements and words, certainly,
it is of no use. If they really want to help, so let them help".
