November 27, Fineko/abc.az. "I strongly condemn the discussion and adoption of the draft resolution by the French Senate on 25 November, submitted by a group of senators influenced by the Armenian Diaspora and the Armenian lobby in connection with the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, and I regard this provocative step as aimed at violating the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, re-inciting war in Karabakh and having no legal basis."
