Those who pushed for The Pallone amendment benefit from the relationship with the Armenian diaspora in the US, former US Ambassador to Azerbaijan Matthew Bryza told Trend .

“It is absolutely clear who is behind this amendment because it is called “The Pallone amendment”,” Bryza added. “I am sure you know that Congressman Frank Pallone is one of Armenia’s strongest supporters in the US House of Representatives.”

“He is a congressman from New Jersey,” former US Ambassador to Azerbaijan said. “New Jersey is the same state where Robert Menendez senator and he was one of two senators who blocked my nomination as ambassador to Azerbaijan.”

“So these people benefit from the relationship with the Armenian diaspora in the US specifically with the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) which is the US branch of the Dashnaktsutyun or also known as Armenian revolutionary fund (Federation) who are the most radical nationalists in Armenia and so that organization in Armenia and then in the US is ANCA they build up hatred towards Azerbaijan and Turkey as a way to build political support and financial support for themselves,” Bryza said. “That is who is behind this amendment.”

“It should be no surprise that the Pallone amendment is against Azerbaijan and Turkey,” former US Ambassador to Azerbaijan said.

“I hope that Azerbaijan’s leadership and citizens realize this is simply what Congressman Pallone does,” Bryza added. “He is able together with the Armenian National Committee of America to build a narrative or a story about the 44-day of second Karabakh war that claimed the Azerbaijan was the aggressor and Armenia was the victim and in the information you send me you see ridiculous claims that Azerbaijan somehow attacked as they put it “Armenian lands”, what they call it “Artsakh”, that are indigenously Armenian.”

“That is absolutely untrue,” Bryza said. “First of all Nagorno Karabakh is not indigenously Armenian. Secondly, we all know all the seven surrounding territories of Nagorno Karabakh are indigenously Azerbaijan’s and that’s why the UN Security Council stated in its four resolutions back in 1993 that Armenia must end its occupation and depart immediately from those territories.”

“So what’s happening is that Congressman Pallone has been able to build president Bayden’s recognition of the Armenian genocide to convince members of the House of the Representatives who don’t understand the history of Eastern Anatolia or the end of World War I,” Bryza said. “They realized if they go along with the congressman Pallone then maybe they will also get some money from this group of Armenian National Committee of America.”

“By the way, if you read the story carefully, you will see that even though two sources of funding for US-Azerbaijan military cooperation are blocked by this amendment, the US department of Defense still retains the freedom to work together with Azerbaijan’s ministry of Defense regardless of this amendment,” former US Ambassador to Azerbaijan said. “Plus this amendment has not passed the US senate either.”

“The bottom line of all is that Azerbaijan needs to work very hard to make sure the truth about this 44-day of second Karabakh war comes out and the truth of it is the fact that Azerbaijan was liberating its own territories as recognized by the UN Security Council,” Bryza said.

Azerbaijan is conducting negotiations on visit of UNESCO Mission to its territories liberated from Armenian occupation [in the 2020 Second Karabakh War], Minister of Culture Anar Karimov told journalists on Sept.25, Trend reports.

According to Karimov, UNESCO has been informed about the conditions of Azerbaijan and the technical details of the organization of the mission.

"Azerbaijan expects from UNESCO a fair and impartial position, the implementation of the mission in accordance with the mandate without politicizing this issue," he said. "Azerbaijan is interested in the implementation of this mission and expects the investigation of the facts of the destruction of cultural and historical monuments in Karabakh [by Armenia], as well as appropriate assessment of the facts by the international community."

Therefore, Azerbaijan has always been a supporter of this mission and expects UNESCO to treat this issue with the same scrupulousness, added the minister.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Karabakh conflict were introduced on Nov. 10, 2020.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, the Armenian Armed Forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

Int’l organizations should investigate Armenia’s environmental terror – MP

International organizations should thoroughly investigate the environmental terror committed by Armenia in previously occupied territories of Azerbaijan, the country’s MP Iltizam Yusifov told Trend on Sept.25.

According to Yusifov, the speech of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev at the annual general debate of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly at the level of heads of states and governments has political and historical significance.

He stressed that during the debates, the president touched upon the topic of the 44-day second Karabakh war [from late Sept. to early Nov.2020] and the upcoming tasks.

"The speech of the head of state testifies that Azerbaijan is on the path of justice, and nothing will force our country to turn away from it," the MP noted.

Having occupied Azerbaijani territories, Armenia inflicted economic and environmental damage there, he added.

"A preliminary assessment was carried out and international organizations were informed. The glorious Azerbaijani army defeated the Armenian armed forces in 44 days and liberated our lands from the occupation, but Armenia left behind destruction and an ecological catastrophe," Yusifov further said.

He also emphasized that Armenia was engaged in illegal activities, robbery of natural resources, pollution of water resources, destruction of flora and fauna in the territories uncontrolled not only by Azerbaijan, but also by the international community.

“During the occupation, Armenia blocked the Tartarchay river, and in several regions hundreds of thousands of hectares of land were left without water, that is, ecological terror was committed, "Yusifov said.

Besides, according to him, during the occupation, Armenian vandals caused great damage to the Basitchay reserve.

"They destroyed almost half of the forests on the territory of the reserve. As a result of Armenian barbarism, the ecosystem that has been forming here for centuries has been irreparably damaged," concluded the MP.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.
