Baku. 18 December. REPORT.AZ/ Today's plenary session of Mlli Majlis has strictly criticized the draft entitled 'Azerbaijan Democracy Act', presented to US Congress and considering imposing the sanctions against Azerbaijani high-ranking officials.
"US policy became pro-Armenian and a slave policy of persons, actually carrying out order of Armenians", Report informs, Samad Seyidov, Chairman of Parliamentary Committee for International Relations and Inter-parliamentary ties said Friday.
