The Milli Maclis (parliament) standing commission for foreign
relations has appealed to the OSCE, UN, NATO, the Organization of the
Islamic Conference and the League of Arab States in connection with
the illegal settlement of Armenians in the occupied territory of
Nagornyy Karabakh and other seven districts of Azerbaijan.

In an interview with Trend news agency, the commission chairman, Samad
Seyidov, said that these steps, which are aimed at strengthening the
occupying regime in the occupied territories, cause concern. This runs
counter to the Geneva convention which bans an occupying country from
settling people in the occupied territories. These steps by Armenia
call into question a peaceful solution to the Karabakh conflict,
Seyidov said.

The standing commission called on the world community to react to the
incident properly.
