AZERBAIJAN SHOWED ITS DESPOTIC IMAGE BY AWARDING THE CRIMINAL WITH HERO TITLE: SERJ TANKIAN
18 September, 2012
YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 18, ARMENPRESS: The recent controversy over
Hungary’s transfer of a convicted killer and his subsequent pardon
and hero’s welcome in Azerbaijan have really worked to reinforce
the international image of Azerbaijan as a nation with a despotic
leadership that promotes nonsensical violence. System of a Down group
member famous musician Serj Tankian came forth with a statement,
“Their only true ally besides Turkey is oil” Tankian notes. In the
words of our compatriot, Armenia doesn’t have an ally in oil. Nor does
it need such ecologically destructive, carbon-based allies. What
Armenia needs is a carbon neutral, ecologically sustainable,
agriculturally diverse future as its ally.
True progress and a solution to Armenia’s economic, environmental,
and social challenges will be based on a coordinated effort to support
environmentally sustainable agriculture.
This would allow the country to produce all necessary food items,
both for domestic consumption and for export. This is strategically
important given Armenia’s landlocked status and geopolitical isolation
caused by hostile neighboring countries.
