Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 7
By Ilhame Isabalayeva – Trend:
Inviting the Azerbaijani president to the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, the White House has strongly responded to the anti-Azerbaijan campaigns of Armenian diaspora in the US, said Aydin Mirzazadeh, deputy chairman of Azerbaijani Parliament’s Committee for Defense, Security and Combating Corruption.
Earlier, Novruz Mammadov, deputy head of Azerbaijani presidential administration, chief of the administration’s foreign relations department, tweeted that the US President Barack Obama invited Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev to the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC.
“Armenian diaspora periodically tries to strike at the international authority of Azerbaijan, to achieve the imposition of sanctions on the country by the United States,” Mirzazadeh told Trend Jan. 6. “Despite this, US President Barack Obama invited Azerbaijani president to the 4th Nuclear Security Summit to be held in Washington, DC.”
He added that the invitation is an appreciation of Azerbaijan’s statehood.
“This summit has become an important event, which explores the stances taken by influential countries’ leaders with regard to the nuclear safety,” said Mirzazadeh. “And the fact that Barack Obama invited Azerbaijani president shows Azerbaijan’s authority on international arena as a state, and how the world evaluates its development, and contributions to security.”
He also believes that the invitation to the summit is another proof of Azerbaijan’s authority on the international arena as an independent state.
