Another Armenian provocation on the international arena was prevented on October 19 in Brussels, where the fourth "congress" of European Armenians was held with the organizational support of the Armenian Diaspora.

The Armenian side planned to commit provocations, with participation of “representatives” of the illegal regime created on the Armenia-occupied territories of Azerbaijan, during the session in the building of the European Parliament that was held within the congress.

Despite attempts by Bako Sahakyan, who is the so-called “head” of the occupation regime, and his accomplices to arrive in Brussels to take part in the event, as a result of the taken measures, participation of “representatives” of the illegal regime in the event was prevented.

Armenian Diaspora often uses the international arena, as well as international exhibitions to distort the essence of the Nagorno-Karabakh issue and present this region of Azerbaijan as Armenian. However, Azerbaijan timely prevents such provocative attempts.

Armenia broke out a lengthy war against Azerbaijan by laying territorial claims on the country. Since a war in the early 1990s, Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan's territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and over 1 million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities.

To this day, Armenia has not implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding districts.
