PM Pashinyan’s wife trying to create image of peaceful Armenia?
Baku, Azerbaijan, October 8
By Samir Ali – Trend:
Anna Hakobyan, the wife of the Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, acts according to the scenario of creating the image of peace-loving Armenia, the chief editor of the Baki Kheber newspaper, political expert Aydin Guliyev told Trend October 8.
He noted that the populism begins to predominate in the political elite of Armenia after the “velvet revolution”.
"This form of political behavior, which was seldom used in the times of Serzh Sargsyan, takes on a systemic nature during the Pashinyan regime. Pashinyan took some of the power through pressure, then, after realizing the impossibility of carrying out concrete work, he even further reinforced populism in political course," the expert noted.
Guliyev also said that by sending his son to serve in the military of the illegal regime established in the occupied lands of Azerbaijan, Pashinyan sought to present this to the Armenian public as an example of the most modern patriotism.
The expert added that the arrival of Hakobyan in the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan and her appeal for peace, the purpose and direction of which are unknown, are a continuation of the new populist policy of the Armenian elite.
“It is impossible to understand the logic of Hakobyan’s appeal to Azerbaijani mothers for peace, despite the fact that the latter are representatives of the people who lost their historical territories. Hakobyan’s appeal to Azerbaijani mothers actually has such an absurd content as “keep your children from protecting their homeland”.
The editor-in-chief added that despite the fact that Hakobyan brought a group of Russian women to Nagorno-Karabakh under the pretext of "peace mission", the essence of the mission is that this is a new form of aggression that disguises itself as peace.
“First of all, the participation of any representative of the Russian state in this action speaks to the fact that Russia also understands the essence of this action. Secondly, if Hakobyan really wanted peace, she would have prevented her son from going to occupied territories of Azerbaijan. Thirdly, if Hakobyan pursued the peace-loving goals, she would send her appeal not to Azerbaijani women, but to Armenian women and would not come to the occupied territories of Azerbaijan," the expert said.
He noted that Hakobyan would have seemed more peaceful if, instead of making new illogical appeals, she acted in accordance with the appeal of Mehriban Aliyeva to Armenian mothers, “to refrain from sending their children to the occupied lands of Azerbaijan”
Guliyev added that the appeal of Hakobyan is in fact an unsuccessful attempt to call on Azerbaijani women to surrender.
The expert added that Hakobyan is playing her role according to the scenario of creating the image of a peace-loving Armenia.
