The resolution adopted by the European Parliament on May 20 conveys
a clear message to Azerbaijan, according to Marat Hakobyan, head of
Analitika.at.ua portal.

The resolution stresses that "real efforts are needed to pave the
way for a lasting peace." It asks all relevant authorities "to
avoid provocative policies and rhetoric, inflammatory statements
and manipulation of history" and calls on the leaders of Armenia
and Azerbaijan "to act responsibly, tone down speeches and prepare
the ground, so that public opinion accepts and fully understands the
benefits of a comprehensive settlement."

"This means that Baku's continuous threats and attempts to distort the
history did not pass unheeded," Mr. Hakobyan told a PanARMENIAN.Net
reporter.
