Azerbaijan, Baku, March 31 / Trend M. Aliyev /
Azerbaijani Interior Minister Ramil Usubov has called on citizens not to visit the unauthorized rallies of the radical opposition.
"The organizers know in advance that the police will not allow to hold an unsanctioned rally and speak there with the statements," Ramil Usubov said in an interview with AzTV state TV channel. As a result, the confrontation will occur. This will be assessed as the resistance to the police. A legal assessment will be given. Criminal cases will be filed. The organizers and active participants of these actions will answer before the law."
He said that the illegal actions are thoroughly suppressed in all civilized countries.
"We will not allow anyone to create problems and cast a shadow on the willingness of the Azerbaijani people to live in a democratic society," he said. The country has enough potential and power to counter these attempts. The most important thing is that Azerbaijani citizens also strongly protest against these actions."
