Illegal visits by some European MPs to the occupied Azerbaijani territories are not a personal initiative, Aydin Guliyev, political expert and editor-in-chief of the Baki Khabar newspaper, told Trend.
New facts prove that these visits are an integral part of an international criminal network, he said.
The facts show that some well-known members of the PACE and the European Parliament carry out a mission to support separatist tendencies in various countries by all means, they encourage activities aimed at violating the territorial integrity of states and carry out this crime under the direct instruction of the Armenian mafia, he noted.
“This was once again confirmed by Albania’s including Cypriot MEP Eleni Theocharous in the list of undesirable persons for criminal activities against the constitutional norms of that country,” he said. “Earlier, Theocharous was included in the list of undesirable persons for constant unlawful visits to Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region occupied by Armenia and a criminal case was initiated against her. The biography of this person includes facts of legal prosecution by Ukraine for supporting ethnic separatism.”
The expert said all this testifies that Theocharous receives all possible support from the Armenian mafia.
The close cooperation between Theocharous and Kaspar Karampetyan, a Greek by origin, who is an active lobbyist of the Armenian separatism against Azerbaijan, gives reason to draw very serious conclusions, the expert noted.
“Karampetyan’s financing illegal visits of all European MPs, including Theocharous, to the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, brings clarity to many issues," the expert said.
“In this context, the investigation materials of the German special services in connection with the Armenian mafia in that country are of particular interest,” he noted. “These materials provide interesting information on the close cooperation of the Armenian mafia with the MPs of the German Bundestag, who made an illegal visit to Nagorno-Karabakh, with Albert Weiler, the founder of the German-Armenian Forum, as well as with Armenia’s envoy in Germany.”
Guliyev said that the Armenian mafia supports all centers of separatism in Europe and organizes visits to the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region.
“The worst thing is that this symbiosis of political mafia, behind which Armenia stands, is already getting roots in such international structures as PACE and the European Parliament,” he noted. “The illegal visits to Nagorno-Karabakh by some representatives of Europe and their attempts to recognize the separatist regime created in the occupied Azerbaijani territories can be explained only by the above-mentioned ties.”
He noted that it is time to investigate the fact that European political entities have fallen under the influence of the Karampetyan-Theocharous group.
“This is an important issue from the point of view of universal peace, security and well-being in Europe,” Guliyev added.
