Azerbaijan, Baku, Sep. 1 / Trend /
The reaction of the Armenian authorities on the extradition and subsequent amnesty of Ramil Safarov verged on hysteria, the director of the Center for Strategic Studies under the President of Azerbaijan, Farhad Mammadov, said on Saturday.
"Holding of a meeting of the Security Council of Armenia and a five-minute nervous speech of President Serzh Sargsyan at the meeting with the ambassadors of UN member states have demonstrated that Sargsyan actually admitted his untenability. By his actions and statements he showed that Armenia is not able to oppose the active foreign policy of Azerbaijan," Mammadov said.
He said it is a serious signal to those who trust in the power of the Armenian diaspora. After the failure in the Constitutional Council of France of the denial of the so-called "Armenian genocide" this move of the Hungarian authorities was a serious blow to the influence of the Armenian diaspora.
"The return of Ramil Safarov is a signal for Armenia, as this country has no leverage because of its weakness and vulnerability. I think Hungary is not particularly upset by the fact of freezing diplomatic relations with Armenia. However, the Hungarian authorities and the public will feel the brunt of propaganda of Armenians at global level, because the most absurd and dirty accusations will fall to Hungary. Admittedly, the Armenians do it best. I think that Hungary should raise the level of threat of terrorist attack, as the EU visa-free space is home to over half a million Armenians, potentially ready to commit a terrorist attack," Mammadov said.
He noted that the Armenian president at a meeting with the ambassadors urged his partners to " unequivocal actions", "but what can be expressed by these actions? Which country will spoil its relations with Hungary because of Armenia?"
"Apparently Serzh Sargsyan himself understood it, as after this call he expressed the phrase with a hint of blackmail: "We will judge attitude of our partners to the security of the Armenian people on the basis of actions in relation to what happened." The height of hypocrisy can be considered a statement that "murder motivated by ethnic or religious hatred can not go unpunished." It should be recalled that the existence of a politician in the face of Serzh Sargsyan as the president of Armenia is the most prominent example of impunity for the killing of hundreds of Azerbaijanis by Armenian thugs led by Serzh Sargsyan during the ethnic cleansing in Nagorno-Karabakh," the head of the Center for Strategic Studies said.
