Baku. Shamil Alibeyli - APA. The bureau of chairman of
Interparliamentary Friendship Group with Azerbaijan in the Lithuanian
Seimas Juras POŽELA commented on the adoption of a declaration
on creation a friendship group between Lithuania and so-called
"Nagorno Karabakh Republic" established in the occupied territories
of Azerbaijan.

Juras POŽELA's bureau told APA that "Lithuania - Armenia: the look to
the past" conference was held in the Parliament of Lithuania during
which member of the Parliament Dalia Kuodyte declared that a group
of members of the Parliament of Lithuania adopted a declaration on
creation a friendship group between Lithuania and Nagorno Karabach
Republic. We deeply regret that on the days of the tragedy of
Khojaly several members of the Parliament organized this event. Such
initiatives do not contribute to the peace and actually worsen the
situation. I do not support such actions of Dalia Kuodyte. Many of the
members of the Parliament of Lithuania expressed solidarity with the
people of Azerbaijan by signing an appeal to the European Community."

Yesterday the Armenian media reported that members of Lithuanian
Seimas adopted a resolution on the establishment of friendship group
between the Seimas and separatist regime in Nagorno-Karabakh.
