Austrian parliament condemns Turkish military interference in Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Austrian parliament unanimously adopted a resolution on the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh on Wednesday, October 15, Armenia's Embassy in Austria reports.

The document, inter alia, condemns the Turkish military interference in the conflict and arms supply to Azerbaijan.

With the resolution, the parliament proposes to the Federal Minister for Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs to make efforts in different directions to alleviate the situation.

According to the Austrian parliament, the Minister should urge the European Union to provide humanitarian assistance to the civilian population affected by the war, once again exerting its influence on all actors involved in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to ensure that humanitarian assistance is available to civilians.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and mercenaries deployed by Ankara, launched a large-scale offensive against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
