Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr.28
By Ilhama Isabalayeva - Trend:
The 1st European Games is a pretext to hold a campaign to discredit Azerbaijan, vice-president of Azerbaijan's National Olympic Committee told Trend.
Chingiz Huseynzade, the vice-president of the National Olympic Committee added that this campaign is against Azerbaijan, its development.
He was commenting on the results of the latest investigation which revealed that the anti-Azerbaijani campaign is managed from the office of the US State Secretary John Kerry in the Congress.
The National Endowment for Democracy organization has been ordered to hold this campaign. The organization that is financed from the US budget, has been trying to create "the fifth column" in Azerbaijan for many years. NED has sent millions of dollars to some NGOs and media structures in Azerbaijan from the sources in the West.
It is inadmissible to use sport in such dirty campaigns, since sport has nothing to do with policy, according to Huseynzade.
The vice-president of the National Olympic Committee condemned the dirty campaigns against Azerbaijan.
