Europarliament Report Urges Turkey To Open Armenian Border

/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.
