Int’l organizations’ assessment must not pursue goals of pressure on Azerbaijan - MP
Baku, Azerbaijan, Dec. 27
By Elchin Mehdiyev - Trend:
The constant attempts of monitoring all actions of Azerbaijan, evaluating them in terms of "democracy" and putting pressure on the country, are useless, Azerbaijani MP Bakhtiyar Sadigov told Trend.
He was commenting on criticism of some international organizations in connection with the Prosecutor General Office's search in the office of Baku's bureau of Radio Liberty upon the court's decision.
He said that Azerbaijan is a country conducting an independent policy.
"Any action, taken inside or outside the country, is based on the will of people and the national interests," he said. "Therefore, Azerbaijan is not obliged to explain its actions to anyone. The state and national interests require, if necessary, significant measures and investigation and even someone's imprisonment taking into account the situation."
"The national interests and the rule of law are a priority for Azerbaijan," he said. "The decisive actions were always taken and will be taken to protect the national interests.
He said that if someone does not like anything or believes that the law is violated, this individual can always appeal to the relevant bodies and the international organizations can assess this issue.
"But it would be nice if they always wait for the results in relation to a particular situation," he said. "They must be objective and never pursue a goal of making pressure on Azerbaijan while assessing the situation."
