25 March 2006 [15:51] - TODAY.AZ
OSCE Fact Investigation mission will arrive to Karabakh in June to investigate hostage issue.

Fact investigation mission is due to investigate all illegal actions of separatists in Karabakh, including destruction of forests and national parks, head of the Azerbaijani Community of Nagorno Karabakh, Nizami Bakhmanov told Trend.

Armenian separatists are cutting down the platan forests, which are part of the State Protected Area Basitchay at the Zangillan district.

The Ecology Ministry has already addressed the international organizations on that issue.
“OSCE Fact Investigation mission will arrive this June to investigate the problem of hostages.

They should also investigate the cutting down of the rare platan forests in the area. The mission has recently investigated the fact of resettling the non-native Armenians in Karabakh and has confirmed it.

The report on the results of the investigation was presented to OSCE member countries and co-chairmen of the Minsk group.

Despite, Armenian side ignores all legal international norms and treaties of the international organizations; this document was issued in our favor. If the fact of destruction of the rare forests in Karabkh will be confirmed the world will know about it. And that will be in Azerbaijan's favor, Bahramov said.

Armenians cut and export red oak-tree and other rare species of trees, rob our forests and other natural resources not only in Zangilan, but also in Lachin.
