ArmInfo. Baku not left unanswered, the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia on democratic elections in Artsakh, emphasizing once again that they reject these electoral processes as such.
So, head of the press service department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Leyla Abdullayeva, having not found any more convincing arguments that these elections allegedly could not be recognized, again used the traditional policy about the alleged and the , unwittingly reminding the famous Russian proverb " If your face is crooked, don't blame this mirror, " (a bad workman always blames his tools, Ed. note), characteristic of the behavior of the current authorities of Azerbaijan.
At the same time, she assured that the elections in Artsakh were resolutely "condemned and rejected" by the international community, apparently implying that a number of states spoke out that they did not recognize these elections, which is quite logical, given the status of non-recognition of Artsakh by the international community. Meanwhile, there was no condemnation of the fact of conducting these processes. Apparently, the presence of a democratic republic near the dictatorial regime of Baku cannot suit the latter. The latest scandalous elections in Azerbaijan, accompanied by a new wave of landings and beatings of the political opposition against the backdrop of civilized Karabakh electoral processes, is incomprehensible for the apologists of the Azerbaijan's dynastic model of totalitarian state.
Apparently this is precisely why Abdulayeva's statement makes a stupid and illogical conclusion that "by the way, the fact of a separate statement by the Armenian Foreign Ministry on the" elective "show in Nagorno-Karabakh once again proves the absence of the need for the participation of the Armenians of Nagorno-Karabakh in the negotiations>. Although it is the presence of true democracy in the NKR as a state unit (it does not matter whether it is recognized or not) that can adequately represent society as a party to the negotiation process.
The old tall tales of official Baku, like mothballs, stating that "elections in the territory of the Azerbaijan Republic are held in accordance with the Constitution of the country, and any act organized in violation of this Supreme Law is not legitimate and cannot be such> in the mouth of the same Abdulayeva can be seen as a useless political vestigial.
Baku again has to be reminded that the modern Republic of Azerbaijan declared independence precisely in its current territorial framework, and there could be no talk of Karabakh in its composition, since even then the Nagorno-Karabakh autonomy had withdrawn from the Azerbaijan SSR in accordance with the Constitution of the USSR.
