/PanARMENIAN.Net/ January 19 the European Parliament passed a report titled "European Neighborhood Policy" prepared by Conservative Foreign Affairs Spokesman, European Parliament member Charles Tannock. Head of Armenia's diplomatic mission to the EU Vigen Chitechyan departed for Strasbourg to take part in the European Parliament plenary session, RA MFA press office reported. 50 amendments including the ones on the South Caucasian states have been introduced into the report before the submission to the plenary session. Chair of the EU-Armenia Parliamentary Cooperation Commission Marie Anne Isler Beguin introduced several amendments, including an item denouncing destruction of Armenian monuments in Nakhichevan and urging Azerbaijan to end demolition of ancient Armenian headstones, historical khachkars (cross stones). By another amendment of Marie Anne Isler Beguin the European Parliament urges Russia and Turkey to play a constructive role, laying basis for peace settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict and restoration of regional cooperation. Within that context the European Parliament urges Turkey to open borders with Armenia. The resolution again touches upon the subject of opening the Armenian-Turkish border and notes the need for progress in the issue. As of the NK conflict, taking into account Armenian party's statement that any statement can have an impact on the settlement process at the moment, a rather balanced text was passed. It says that taking into consideration the fact that the NK conflict hampers development of both Armenia and Azerbaijan, as well as regional cooperation, the EU urges the parties to avoid unilateral actions and militant statements. The EU also urges to constructive dialogue with all interested parties and to work over peace settlement, respecting national minority rights and legal principles. The EU emphasizes the importance of reforms for development of regional cooperation with EU and urges all parties to search for ways for return of refugees, based on national minority rights, specifically return of Azeri refugees to the "occupied territories." Thereupon the EU urges the OSCE Minsk Group member states to coordinate their actions more effectively with the EU special representative to the South Caucasus to ensure progress in the talks.
