Azerbaijani political analyst: United States should think about official Yerevan's actions
Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 1 / Trend M. Aliyev /
The United States should make conclusions based on the information leaked by WikiLeaks and decide who Armenia is acting against, Azerbaijani political analyst Fikret Sadikhov told Trend.
He added that although WikiLeaks published a great deal of "known information," some material should be carefully considered.
"Armenia's sale of arms to Iran, given the sanctions imposed against Iran, U.N. Security Council resolutions, and the killing of U.S. soldiers using these weapons, is a fact to be considered," he said.
The notorious website WikiLeaks, specializing in distributing secret documents, published declassified data on U.S. foreign policy strategy on Nov. 28. Some of the disseminated information concerned Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, the Guardian newspaper reported. Based on the documents, Armenia supplied weapons to Iran that were used to kill and wound U.S. soldiers in Iraq. In particular, the newspaper quoted a letter by U.S. Secretary of State John Negroponte sent to Sargsyan, which contains a number of serious accusations and claims relating to Armenia's foreign policy.
Sadikhov stressed that Washington must draw conclusions about who Yerevan is acting out against.
He added that the information was likely leaked by "certain circles" looking to undermine the White House.
"WikiLeaks leaked information that is top secret even to the U.S. State Department," he said. "This fact prompts the belief that certain influential circles are behind this."
He said the information contains both authentic and fake material.
"There is objective and subjective information," he said. "The authors seek to make the reader believe in the authenticity of all of the documents by mixing this information."
