ArmInfo.Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev criticized Canada and France.
The reason for the sharp criticism was the statements of the foreign ministries of the aforementioned states, calling for the immediate release of all Armenian prisoners of war and prisoners of war who have been illegally detained by Azerbaijan for 7 months in violation of the agreements of November 9, 2020. Thus, Aliyev, in an interview with Azerbaijani television during a trip to the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, suddenly became indignant that sometimes countries at the other end of the world make statements related to the conflict or ongoing processes in Azerbaijan.
"This is unacceptable. I can cite Canada as an example. Recently I was informed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Canada issued a statement in connection with Azerbaijan, our internal affairs. By what right? Who does Canada think it is? Maybe it is a superpower, and we did not know about it? "Maybe this is the second Luxembourg, a second superpower has appeared, but we did not know? Let it mind its own business," the Azerbaijani dictator said, forgetting that the Azerbaijan has a number of obligations to the international community, which are grossly violated by the Azerbaijani authorities.
Aliyev once again attacked Paris, saying that he rejects the statement of the French Foreign Ministry and considers it unacceptable. "We have repeatedly expressed our claims to the French side so that they leaves us alone. Go and mind your business. While, the Head of the French Senate arrives in Yerevan, makes a statement there that the French Senate recognizes Nagorno-Karabakh. When we turn to government bodies of France on this issue, we express our protest, we are told, do not pay attention, this is a legislative body, it does not reflect the position of the authorities. Well, and what about the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it also does not reflect the position of the government? What are these statements? Let them go about their business ", Aliyev said.
The President of Azerbaijan has once again attacked Armenia with aggressive rhetoric, warning it against revanchism. Apparently, intoxicated by the results of hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, achieved with the illegal and direct participation of Turkey, as well as militants from Syria and Lebanon, against the background of the complete inaction of the international community, Aliyev Jr. imagined himself to be a brave military leader and decided to once again shake his arms in front of Armenia. At the same time, the head of Azerbaijan forgot that the international community had already personally familiarized itself with the methods of action of the valiant Azerbaijani army, which can only assert itself through desecration of the defenseless corpses of the Armenian military, humiliation and torture of old people and women, vandalism in relation to the Armenian cultural and religious heritage.
At the same time, either calming himself, or the Azerbaijani society, Aliyev assured that "Armenia has neither the strength, nor the will, nor the moral right to live with revanchist thoughts." "Both the authorities and the opposition in Armenia, one might say, all the elements involved in politics express thoughts about the return of Shushi and Hadrut. We are still showing restraint. But let them not play with fire. They saw our fist. It is in place. Nobody will be able to resist us. If we see even a small - small - threat, we will immediately destroy them. We will destroy them right on the spot, "Aliyev condemned once again.
