Official: Azerbaijan not an outpost for any country
Azerbaijan, Baku, 15 June / Trend E. Mehtiev /
"Today, not a single economic or political project in the region is implemented without Azerbaijan's participation, and with a sense of pride we can say that Azerbaijan is a leading country," head of the Political Analysis and Information Supply Department of the Administration of the President of Azerbaijan Elnur Aslanov said.
He made the remarks at the reporting conference of the National Assembly of Youth Organizations of the Republic of Azerbaijan (NAYORA) on Saturday.
"Azerbaijan is not an outpost for any country, not a tool for the implementation of one or another state's policy in the region," Aslanov said.
He noted that Azerbaijan is a strong independent state, foundation of which was laid by Heydar Aliyev, and the country is pursuing its own independent policy.
"Azerbaijan is a factor that plays a special role in the foundation of many international organizations as well as in the activities of these organizations," Aslanov said, adding that President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev heads this policy.
Aslanov informed the participants of the reporting conference of the National Assembly of Youth Organizations of the Republic of Azerbaijan about the comments made by Azerbaijan towards the international organizations. He stressed that these organizations want to demonstrate a biased position against Azerbaijan by different ways.
"For example, around 32 MEPs, consisting of 754 members, adopted a resolution on Azerbaijan on behalf of the European Parliament," he said. "This resolution is unilateral and biased. The organizations, which are under the influence of the Armenian lobby and trying to respond immediately to a particular issue, in the large European institution, do not adopt the resolution in relation to people who have suffered as a result of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, refugees and internally displaced people, whose rights have been violated for more than 20 years. Is not the expulsion of one million people from their lands a problem?"
