Ambassador: Armenian PM's statements should be more responsible
AIt seemed that after the fall of the Sargsyan regime, adequate representatives of the Armenian society would come to power, who will set relations with the neighbors a priority. However, those who came to power after the "velvet revolution", in particular, the current Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, turned out to be like an elephant in a china shop.
Many experts and political scientists, including Armenians, state that Pashinyan lacks political experience and is not able to soberly assess the political situation.
In an interview with the Ukrainian channel 5, Azerbaijani ambassador to Ukraine Azer Khudiyev said that Pashinyan should make more responsible statements.
He noted that the ArmenianAzerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict lasted for more than a quarter of a century.
“Unfortunately, 20 percent of our territories are under the occupation of neighboring Armenia. Today, despite the efforts of our diplomacy to resolve this issue peacefully, we failed because of the non-constructive and aggressive policy of Armenia. We approach the work of the OSCE with great respect. But, unfortunately, there is no mechanism for resolving this conflict, and so far we have not seen significant progress or real results. We are for resolving this issue peacefully. But we will never stop enhancing the combat capability of our army,” said Khudiyev.
Further, the ambassador noted that Azerbaijan monitors everything that happens in neighboring countries, whether it is Armenia or another neighboring country.
Khudiyev stated that Azerbaijan is concerned about the processes taking place in Armenia, because Azerbaijan wants stability in neighboring countries.
“If there is chaos there, some forces, radicals, ultranationalists can take advantage of it, and thereby escalation will begin, which may again lead to renewed hostilities,” he said concluded.
In principle, the Armenians on the border with Azerbaijan really behave like radicals. Units of the Armenian Armed Forces at a border combat point near the village of Kemerli, Gazakh region, fired a 7.62 mm sniper rifle with an excavator at which Azerbaijani civilian was engaged in engineering works at a distance of 450 meters from the state border on January 6, at 15:35.
The bullets hit the excavator bucket and damaged the right glass of the cab. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
This incident proves once again that Armenia does not abondon terrorist activities against the civilian population of Azerbaijan. The world community should not close on such actions of Armenia.
