В"I am confident on 6 November the Azerbaijani people will make their choice. They are to elect deputies which will take care of the welfare of their votersвЂќ, Aliyev stated. At the same time, no one will be allowed to violate laws. вЂњThe democratic process is taking place in Azerbaijan but everybody must remember there is law which must not be violatedвЂќ, Aliyev stated.
The head of the state noted, the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) oil pipeline goes through Kazakh area and it will be beneficial for all people.
