The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) MPs on Tuesday voted on MP Robert Walter’s (UK) anti-Armenian report entitled “Escalation of Violence in Nagorno-Karabakh and Other Occupied Territories of Azerbaijan,” during the ongoing PACE Winter Session in Strasbourg, France.
Main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) deputy İlhan Kesici was the sole Turkish delegation member to abstain from voting on this report.

The PACE rejected this anti-Armenian report by a vote of 66 for, 70 against, and 45 abstentions.
Kurdish members of the Turkish delegation to PACE did not participate in the voting.
But PACE adopted MP Milica Marković’s (Bosnia and Herzegovina) anti-Armenian report about Sarsang Reservoir in Nagorno-Karabakh, and entitled “Inhabitants of frontier regions of Azerbaijan are deliberately deprived of water.”
To note, representatives of the PACE Unified European Left Group, the Socialist Group, and the European People’s Party voted against both anti-Armenian reports.
