Azerbaijan refused to admit the European Parliament delegation, which was planning to hold monitoring at the site of the Armenain cemetery in Old Jugha, MEDIAMAX agency reports, referring to well-informed diplomatic circles.
The Armenian side agreed to provide the opportunity to the delegation of the European Parliament to hold monitoring of the historical monuments on Nagorno-Karabakh territory.
The delegation was to arrive in the region early September.
To remind, in Article 67 of the European Neighborhood Policy resolution adopted January 19, the European Parliament called on Azerbaijani authorities to " stop the destruction of medieval Armenian cemeteries and historical khachkars in the Southern part of Nakhijevan."
It is noted in the resolution that the demolition of Armenian monuments is the violation of the UNESCO convention on World Heritage, which Azerbaijan ratified in 1993.
