Azerbaijan, Baku, March 5 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
The Azerbaijani Presidential Administration categorically condemned the adoption of the resolution recognizing the so-called "Armenian genocide" by the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.
Such step by the U.S congressmen is mistaken and unfair, Azerbaijani Presidential Administration Socio-Political Department Head Ali Hasanov said in his interview with the media outlets.
"All the nations and states that were involved in World War I (WWI) suffered losses in the course of events taken place in one of the fronts of WWI in 1915. The question of who suffered more losses and who less, or what the war's results were for it, should be addressed not by the Congressmen of the country, claiming the title of world superpower, but by independent historians and researchers," Hasanov said.
Hasanov said the Azerbaijani government condemns this step by the U.S. congressmen, and brings to attention that this decision was unilateral, unjust, pro-Armenian and anti-Turk in spirit. "We believe this decision also does not correlate strongly with the interests of the United States and the American people, and seriously damages the international image of this country," he said.
Hasanov also expressed confidence that receiving the required assessment from the U.S Congress House of Representatives, the Foreign Affairs Committee's decision will be withdrawn, and the U.S. government will be released from this unfair responsibility.
