The false nature of visits to the occupied Azerbaijani territories by the marginalized people, brought together by Armenian lobbyists under the guise of "prestigious diplomats and politicians", is gradually being exposed, editor-in-chief of the Baki Kheber newspaper, expert Aydin Guliyev told Trend Oct. 31.

He noted that this work, carried out for many years by the Armenian lobby, not only hasn't given any effect, but also has begun to take on an increasingly irresponsible character.

"The Armenians really hoped that they could achieve recognition of the separatist regime established in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan as an independent entity," the expert said.

Guliyev said as a result of revelation of the false nature of the Armenian claims, the Armenians' tactics to arrange visits of emissaries to Karabakh now has begun to work against themselves.

"After each visit, authoritative organizations make unequivocal statements about non-recognition of the separatist regime and demonstrate to the whole world the falsity of the Armenians' intentions. In addition, the number of people whom they lure in Karabakh is rapidly decreasing. Now, the representatives of serious European circles, the MPs do not show interest in such visits," Guliyev added.

The expert noted that it is enough to look at the list of persons brought to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

“The activity of these people, who became the last hope for Armenia and turned into “puppet politicians”, proves once again that the Armenian leadership is well aware that it has lost the diplomatic struggle, and it wants to hide its major defeat by bringing people from abroad to Karabakh,” the expert added.

Yesterday, Jean-Jacques Flahaux, a member of the Belgian Federal Parliament, chairman of the Reformist Movement for international relations, and Julie Szmai, deputy chairman of the Reformist Movement for international relations made an illegal visit to the Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia.

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, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
