President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev, in defiance of diplomatic correctness and basic respect, organized a demarche against French President Emmanuel Macron.

"A week after the meeting in Prague, Macron criticized Azerbaijan and accused it of what it did not do. After that, the French Senate adopted a resolution that is absolutely unacceptable and insulting. It was followed by another anti-Azerbaijani resolution of the French National Assembly, and then an attempt to attack us through the Francophonie Summit. This is unacceptable, as Francophonie is a humanitarian organization," Aliyev said in his address at the international conference, entitled "Along the Middle Corridor: Geopolitics, Security and Economy."

He said that this "anti-Azerbaijani resolution is of a formal nature."

"Taking into account all that, it is clear that France cannot participate in the peace process [between Azerbaijan and Armenia]. It is not our fault. Neither the US nor Russia have ever defended anyone on an official level. And this means that the December 7 meeting [in Brussels, with Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan] will not take place. We will look for alternatives," said Aliyev.

The Azerbaijani president  added that he considers Pashinyan's proposal about Macron's participation in the Brussels meeting as an "attempt to disrupt the peace negotiations."
