PanARMENIAN.Net – Armenian Human Rights defender Arman Tatoyan has published segments from the speech of the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev addressed to his party, “New Azerbaijan”, at a Congress on March 5. In his remarks, the Azeri leader proudly stressed that an entire generation has grown up with hatred towards Armenia and its population.
Tatoyan said Aliyev’s presentation begs the questions of who, after all, is speaking the language of fascism. Below are some excerpts from Aliyev’s speech:
“The younger generation has grown up with (…) hatred for the enemy, and this young generation has liberated our lands from the invaders”.
“Armenia is in an isolated state today, while we are building relations with all our neighbors very effectively, based on friendship and good neighborliness. This was also a kind of preparation. I want to say frankly that if preparatory work had not been done in this area, then we could have faced difficulties in the second Karabakh war. Armenia has isolated itself. In other words, we isolated it from regional projects, from oil and gas projects, ruined their economy, and we can say with a sense of pride that we are the main factor here, as any independent economic expert can confirm. We exposed Armenia as an ambivalent and unstable country with no future. Demographic problems arose, which in itself led to shrinking of the economy”.
“Today Armenia shies away from cooperation, attempts to hamper the implementation of the Zangazur corridor. But they will fail. We will make them. We will force them. We will achieve our goals, just as we drove them out of our lands”.
