ArmInfo. The current government of Azerbaijan, which considers Armenian-phobia as the main source of internal consolidation and legitimacy of power, is a threat not only to Artsakh, Armenia and the entire Armenian people, but also to peace and security in the region.
A similar statement was made by the press secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Armenia (MFA), Anna Naghdalyan, commenting on the next statement by the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev. "The security system of Artsakh and Armenia is sufficiently comprehensive and stable to effectively counter such threats," she emphasized.
According to Naghdalyan, recently, from various departments and senior management of Azerbaijan sound devoid of content, reminiscent of hysteria and competing anti-Armenian statements.
It is noteworthy that the authoritarian authorities of Azerbaijan, promoting hate among their people and threatening war, use the pretext of combating coronavirus to commit large-scale human rights violations in their country - a reality voiced by a number of authoritative international and regional organizations. Nevertheless, no matter how much hatred propaganda against Armenians and the threat of war are aimed at an internal audience, such statements cause serious damage to the peace process and indicate that not the people of Azerbaijan, but the top leadership of Azerbaijan is not ready for peace>, - it says in the MFA statement.
She noted that the anti-Armenian actions of the Azerbaijani leadership have already received their legal assessment from the international community. Thus, in the verdict adopted in the case of Makuchyan and Minasyan v. Azerbaijan and Hungary, the ECHR condemned the racist policy of the Azerbaijani state, which manifested itself in actions to pardon, release and reward the murderer Ramil Safarov. Recall that on the eve of the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev visited the Terter region of the country, where he delivered a large-scale speech, which was aimed mainly at blackening Armenia. At the same time, Aliyev, once again expressing claims to the original Armenian territories, made an absurd statement that "the vast majority of toponyms throughout the territory of present-day Armenia are of Azerbaijani origin" and that the Armenians were allegedly resettled to these territories during the Russian-Persian war.
