“The fact that the aggressor country speaks about peace in its statements is the highest degree of hypocrisy,” said spokesperson for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry Leyla Abdullayeva as she responded to media’s question on the Armenian Foreign Ministry’s comment regarding the so-called “inauguration” organized by the aggressor state Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.
Leyla Abdullayeva said: “The fact that the Armenian Foreign Ministry called the show around the so-called “inauguration” in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan a “democratic process” testifies not only the true nature of this aggressor state but also how far it is from the concept of democracy. The occupation of the internationally recognized territory of another state, the ethnic cleansing of the people living there, thus a gross violation of human rights is called aggression in the language of modern international law, not democracy.
As regards the term “people”, to which the Armenian Foreign Ministry refers, firstly, the Armenians in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan are not the people, but the Armenian community living in this region. Secondly, in order to talk about the principle of self-determination of peoples, the Armenian Foreign Ministry must first find out what this principle means, read the Helsinki Final Act, and only then refer to this principle.
The fact that the aggressor country speaks about peace in its statements is the highest degree of hypocrisy. A country that wants peace will not pursue a policy of aggression, a country that seeks peace will not impede the negotiations process, and, finally, a supporter of peace will not be a serious threat to the peace itself.”
