YEREVAN. – Azerbaijani FM testified once again that it is common to voice contradictory statements, neglect principles accepted by the OSCE Minsk Group and hold a fascist policy on highest level towards own people simply to keep authority, Armenian Parliament Deputy Speaker, ruling Republican Party of Armenia (RPA) member Eduard Sharmazanov told Armenian News-NEWS.am. His comments came after Azerbaijani FM Elmar Mammadyarov commented on adopting mechanisms to investigate line of the contact incidents.
Contradiction is very characteristic to that country’s authorities and far from diplomatic ethics, stressed Sharmazanov. At first, Mammadyarov agreed to adopt the mechanisms, but later contradicted to himself by claiming that it will work only after removing Armenian troops from ‘occupied territories’ of Azerbaijan. As a matter of fact the second part of Mammadyarov’s claim is too dangerous, as it neglects the statement made by the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs. Azerbaijan applies fascism not only against Armenians but also against own servicemen died on the border with Armenia during the recent ceasefire violation cases by Azerbaijan.
To note, Baku media outlets claimed that Azerbaijnai side is allegedly ready to adopt the mechanisms but only after Armenian troops will be withdrawn. Otherwise it will mean to strengthen the status-quo, which is not acceptable for Baku.
