Azerbaijan, Baku, July 8 / Trend , U.Sadikhova/
Azerbaijani Ambassador to the United States Yashar Aliyev expressed his desire that the Jewish lobby will strengthen its aid to Azerbaijan in foreign policy.
After Israeli President Shimon Peres's visit to Baku on June 28-29, representatives of the Jewish lobby initiated to strengthen their assistance to Azerbaijan.
Commenting on the Armenian lobby's influence in the United States, the ambassador said just this has become a reason of the fact that the March events in Armenia in 2008 remain undisclosed.
"Figures in the report of the US Department of State were understated. I think this is a result of the Armenian lobby's work in the United States," he said.
On Feb. 20 in 2008, the Armenian opposition held a protest action in the center of Yerevan, expressing dissatisfaction with the outcome of the presidential elections in February, which was won by Serzh Sargsyan.
On March 1, protesters clashed with police officers and as a result, ten were killed and 265 people - wounded. Two key demands have been put forward for Armenia, including releasing political prisoners and holding an impartial investigation into the March events, which was never implemented.
