The European Strategic Intelligence and Security Center (ESISC) on March 6 published a comprehensive report uncovering an Armenian connection network inside the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) that "has led a merciless propaganda campaign against Azerbaijan to benefit Armenia."

The report, entitled "The Armenian Connection - How a Secret Caucus of MPs and NGOs, since 2012, Created a Network within the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe to Hide Violations of International Law", states that "these unilateral and untruthful attacks are the tool of a hidden political agenda: to defend Armenia's illegal occupation of Nagorno-Karabakh" and to hide "private interests behind the purview of the 'defence of human rights'".

Providing facts, figures and photos, the 27-page ESISC investigation links certain members of PACE to Armenia or Armenian-linked organizations.

"These dangerous politics that associate MPs and large NGOs must immediately stop," the report states.

The probe also condemns the report by the European Stability Initiative (ESI) entitled "Caviar Diplomacy", which accused Azerbaijan of corruption.

"The publication of this report had only one goal: to create a climate of suspicion based on slander to form a network of MPs that would engage in a political war against Azerbaijan," according to ESISC's report.

A second report into the "Armenian Connection" will be published by ESISC in the near future.
