Foreign Ministry on another absurdity from Yerevan: Armenia's comments became subject of jokes

The fact that the Armenian Foreign Ministry accuses Azerbaijan of territorial claims is yet another absurdity, said Leyla Abdullayeva, Spokesperson for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, commenting on the statement of the Media and Public Diplomacy Department of the Armenian Foreign Ministry of July 19, 2021.

L. Abdullayeva noted that the comments of Armenia, which considers history to be its 'strength,' have already become the subject of jokes: 'This country, still proceeding from "historical" fantasies, puts forward territorial claims to neighbouring countries. For the smallest and weakest country in the region, this is far from being a smart policy.'

Abdullayeva reminded the Armenian side that thousands of Armenians still live in Baku, Sumgayit, Ganja and other cities of Azerbaijan, and stressed that if it were not for the territorial claims and the policy of Armenia's aggression against Azerbaijan, this figure would have been higher.

Referring to the statements of the Armenian Foreign Ministry about the War Trophy Park in Baku, the official representative of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry recalled that the exposition is a symbol of the victory of law and justice over the aggressor: 

'The fortifications built by Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan on display in the park are proof that this country has demonstrated hypocrisy for decades in the negotiations to resolve the conflict. Calling the park a "monument of revanchism," the Armenian Foreign Ministry forgets that, unlike Azerbaijan, numerous monuments to terrorists and war criminals have been erected in Armenia. I wonder why not these monuments were vandalised, but the monuments to the Holocaust and Mahatma Gandhi in Armenia?!'

'In conclusion, we would like to emphasise that in order to ensure peace and security in the region, normalise relations between the two countries, Armenia - the author of numerous "historical discoveries" - does not need to invent anything. This can be achieved only by observing international norms and principles,' says the comment.
