Some int’l organizations "forget" about human rights when it comes to Armenia
Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 15
By Elchin Mehdiyev – Trend:
International organizations that have been indifferent to the aggressive policy of Armenia’s criminal regime for 20 years do not want to abandon double standards, member of the political council of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party Vugar Rahimzade told Trend.
He stressed that Azerbaijan is recognized internationally as the author of the global economic projects.
“Of course, Armenia is isolated from these projects,” Rahimzade said. “There is political tension in the country. Armenia’s economy is on the verge of collapse. People continue to leave the country.”
“There is one reason - aggressive policy, unreasonable territorial claims against Azerbaijan and other countries, a terrorist political regime,” he said. “While speaking at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers dedicated to the results of social and economic development in 2018 and the upcoming tasks, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev particularly touched on this issue, spoke about the regime of the criminal junta, which is illegally in power for 20 years.”
"In his speech, the president emphasized that some international organizations are preparing positive reports on the falsified presidential and parliamentary elections in Armenia,” Rahimzade added. “The recent parliamentary election showed that the criminal regime could not collect even five percent of the votes. I think that the president’s statement that Armenia has bribed many politicians through "cognac diplomacy" must be a lesson for some international organizations."
He added that these organizations talking about democracy and human rights must not turn a blind eye to the situation in Armenia.
“If one talks about democracy, then this factor should also apply to Armenia,” Rahimzade said. “Why are some international organizations putting pressure on other countries under the pretext of “human rights” silent when it comes to Armenia? How long will this silence continue? If lawlessness continuing in Armenia for 20 years is not fairly assessed, then the statements of some international organizations about democracy and human rights will remain meaningless.”
