Work done at the US Congress for unmasking the forces favoring Section 907 of the Freedom Support Act, which bans direct government assistance to Azerbaijan has yielded concrete results, Araz Azimov, the Azerbaijan Deputy Foreign Minister, told a news conference in Baku on Thursday. Annual waiver of the document also testifies for it.
The United States and Azerbaijan are strategic partners in the sphere of struggle with terror. Formal existence of the section should be of any significance for Azerbaijan, as major direction of assistance approved for Azerbaijan is focused on security section.
Section 907 should not disappoint Azerbaijan, but become a base for more objective standpoint on Baku, Azimov underlined. Such document is one more opportunity for damage on US interests in the South Caucasus.
