The European Parliament is more aggressive towards Azerbaijan than the Armenian Parliament, President Ilham Aliyev said at the meeting with the delegation headed by David McAllister, Chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Relations on July 19, Report informs.
“Sometimes it seems that these resolutions are adopted by the Armenian parliament or maybe some Armenian lobby groups have some influence on them. Otherwise, it is very difficult to understand. When I said I was surprised, I meant exactly that.”
The last delegation of the European Parliament visited Azerbaijan in 2018, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said on July 19 as he received a delegation headed by David McAlister, Chairman of the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Relations.
“To be honest, I was even a little surprised when I heard that you were planning a visit to Azerbaijan. Maybe the reason is known to you,” the head of state said.
“I remember the meeting where we extensively discussed the development of cooperation. But, unfortunately, it did not happen. The reason was not with us, but with the position of some members of the European Parliament. We consider that position to be completely unjustified. Accusations and insults were voiced against us and false information spread,” the Azerbaijani leader said.
