Baku. Lachin Sultanova-APA. "The only aim of Armenia is to divert
the attention of the world community from the ongoing developments
in the country.
But it will be impossible", Chief of the International Affairs
Department of the President’s Office Novruz Mammadov told APA
exclusively. Novruz Mammadov mentioned Armenian President Robert
Kocharian’s recent statement.
"Some days ago, Robert Kocharian said "Azerbaijan considers that we
have brought our armed forces from Nagorno Karabakh to Yerevan".
Thus, Kocharian confesses that Armenia deployed its armed forces in
Azerbaijani lands – Nagorno Karabakh. He admitted it accidentally. On
the other hand, Armenian Diaspora and people understand that Sarkisian
uses military methods more skillfully," he said.
Novruz Mammadov said separatist group led Armenia and the interests of
Armenia and Armenian people were of no importance for this separatist
"They try to subordinate the issues related to the state and people
their interests and have achieved it. The policy pursued by this
group is military character and these adventurist politicians will
often come across these issues," he said.
The Department Chief touched upon the developments occurred after
the elections in Armenia.
"These elections show that one of the separatist leaders speaking
on behalf of population succeeded the other, sent army to crackdown
innocent people to stop clashes announcing state of emergency. To
their official reports, 8 people were killed during the developments
in Yerevan. This means that the group in Armenian government wants
to ensure their interests. They want to prove their legitimacy," he
said. Mammadov noted that separatist group was anxious about 2 issues.
"First, the settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict, they want to avoid
this issue and divert the attention of world society, co-chairs and
international organizations. Kocharian announced that the negotiations
should be stopped, because presidential elections will be held in
Azerbaijan and these elections will impede the negotiations. He
understood later that his opinion was foolish. He has not right to
speak on the behalf of Azerbaijan for the presidential elections. They
began to cover up the political crisis and crimes committed against
the population," he said.
Department chief stated that international organizations had not
seriously reacted to this issue.
"If there were any development in Azerbaijan, the whole world would
attack us. But there is not any statement on the developments in
Armenia. Armenian leadership demonstrated hypocritical actions and
tries to divert attention of world society from the domestic crisis.
Therefore, they violated cease-fire two days ago and tried to attack
positions of Azerbaijani Armed Forces. But Azerbaijan had heavier
response to the enemy. They hope that they will deliver hypocritical
positions to the world society with the help of Armenian Diaspora and
Armenians living abroad. But the world society is already aware of
their hierocracy. Armenian Diaspora was oppressed by Armenian actions
and majority is not satisfied with their policy and they know that
the dissatisfaction appeared as a result of wrong policy in Yerevan,
