European Parliament Member Calls for Sanctions on Azerbaijan, EU Foreign Policy Chief Remains Silent

Can’t you accept that the negotiations (i.e. between the leaders of Armenia and Azerbaijan) are taking place in the context of the crime defined by the International Court of Justice without doing anything in response to the crime? Member of the European Parliament (MEP) Francois-Xavier Bellamy (France) addressed Josep Borrell, High Representative of the European Union (EU) for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, with such a rhetorical question during Tuesday’s European Parliament debates on the situation created by Azerbaijan’s blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh.

“There is a situation of fundamental injustice, which is the subtext of this debate, between the guilty and the victim. We cannot accept that. If we allow that to happen, well, we’ll allow all sorts of situations around the world. The first thing we should do is to impose sanctions against Azerbaijan for the crime. No sanction was proposed. I believe it contradicts the dignity of the European Union,” said Bellamy.

But in response to the MEP’s aforesaid remarks, Borrell just took off his earphones and remained silent.
