Press Release of the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan

The Embassy is satisfied with the decision that has been made by the Senate of Canada moved by Senator Housakos.

The motion was "calling upon the Government of Canada to immediately condemn the joint Azerbaijani-Turkish aggression against the Republic of Artsakh, uphold the ban on military exports to Turkey, recognize the Republic of Artsakh’s inalienable right to self-determination and, in light of further escalation and continued targeting of innocent Armenian civilians, recognize the independence of the Republic of Artsakh."

As a result of the vote on this motion, the majority of the Senators voted against it. The Embassy sincerely thanks all the Senators whose vote reflected fairness and the norms and principles of international law which recognize the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. This is exactly what Azerbaijan expected from Canada and the world community.
