West’s pressure not to affect Azerbaijan
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 28
The absence of some international observers at the parliamentary election would not affect the situation and the good mood of all inhabitants of Azerbaijan, the leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) Vladimir Zhirinovsky said in his interview to the Secki-2015.az website.
Zhirinovsky said that Russia sees that the West puts pressure on Azerbaijan on the eve of the election.
"This is unacceptable," he said. "Human rights defenders are also trying to play their role. Practically, it is the same what Russia has been facing with in recent years. Azerbaijan is entitled to pursue independent policy."
Zhirinovsky said that Azerbaijani authorities properly respond to any attempt of pressure from the West.
"Azerbaijan is not afraid of anyone," he said. "No visa bans or some other attempts aiming to restrict Azerbaijan in something will have an effect. No one will be able to organize "Maidan" in Azerbaijan."
Talking about the relations between Azerbaijan and Russia, Zhirinovsky said that the two countries experience good partnership.
"We are very happy to see the success of Azerbaijan and we are confident that the election would be held in peaceful, normal atmosphere," Zhirinovsky said, adding, that the relations between the two countries would be stable and develop only in a positive format.
