“Senate hearings” – part of anti-Azerbaijani campaign in US

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.29

Trend:

The "Senate hearings" of the US are part of the anti-Azerbaijani campaign held in the US in recent months, counselor of Azerbaijani embassy in this country Fakhraddin Ismayilov told Trend.

False information was spread in order to exaggerate the significance of this event and its scope and the main source of such information was the Armenian media again, the diplomat said.

Ismayilov said that this unofficial event was presented as "Senate hearings", while any senator and congressman has the right to hold such unofficial meetings in their cabinets by using their status.

For example, the "Karabakh Foundation" operating in the US organized an event with the support of Steve Cohen, co-chair of the working group on Azerbaijan in the Congress, he added.

The current event was held with the support of the Illinois Senator Mark Kirk whose personality and position allows to disclose the true purpose of this event, according to the diplomat.

Ismayilov noted that as the congressman in the US House of Representatives, this senator was the co-chair of the Armenia-US friendship group, consistently supported Armenia and continues to justify this country's aggressive policy.

"There is no doubt that such a person does a favor to his Armenian patrons by carrying out activities in connection with human rights in Azerbaijan and by supporting the anti-Azerbaijani campaign," said the diplomat. "Azerbaijan, its citizens and human rights in the country are really of no interest for this senator."

"Possibly, Mark Kirk's recent pro-Armenian activity is due to that he is considered to be a Republican senator having the least chance to be re-elected to the Senate next year," said Ismayilov.

He said that by doing so, Kirk intends to earn the support of the Armenian community of the country.

Another proof of the fact that this event is a part of the anti-Azerbaijani campaign is that speakers and moderator of the event are people who consistently criticize Azerbaijan, the diplomat said.

"Those who are familiar with these people know that one shouldn't expect a fair and objective assessment from them," Ismayilov said. "The fact that not a single senator or congressman was present at this event proves its real insignificance. Representatives of the Armenian lobby in the US and those who present themselves as the representatives of the Armenian separatists in Azerbaijan's occupied territories were among the minority of participants."

The US Senate held an informal meeting on democracy and human rights issues in Azerbaijan October 28.
