Foreign Ministry: Armenian leadership to be responsible for any provocation against Azerbaijani citizens
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 5 / Trend M.Aliyev /
The Armenian leadership will be responsible for any provocation of Armenian terrorists against Azerbaijani citizens or diplomats, Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev told reporters on Wednesday.
"ASALA is a worldwide known terrorist organization that has killed many people," Abdullayev said.
Azerbaijan, according to the spokesman, instructed its diplomatic missions to appeal to the intelligence services of the host country in the event of any threat to Azerbaijani diplomats.
"Statements of the Armenian government, full of threats and aggression, show that the Armenian authorities are sponsors of terrorism," Abdullayev said. "Yerevan's hysterics pursues only one purpose - populism and electoral propaganda."
In connection with the extradition to Azerbaijan and pardon of Ramil Safarov Armenia and the Armenian diaspora continue to escalate the artificial stir and set international opinion against Azerbaijan, the AzerTAc agency reported. Armenian terrorist organizations, inspired by inciting and aggressive stance of the Armenian government, threaten the diplomatic missions of Azerbaijan and Azerbaijanis abroad.
The document, received on September 3 by the Azerbaijani Embassy in Hungary from the ASALA Fighters terrorist organization, calls as a target Azerbaijani diplomats, Azerbaijani students studying abroad, businessmen, activists of diaspora organizations, and states that they will be killed.
