The EU and its structures, ignoring the crimes committed by the Armenian military forces during the 30 years of occupation of the Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, apply a policy of double standards towards Baku, US political scientist and expert in the field of international relations Peter Tase told Report.
In his opinion, the policy of double standards lies in the fact that the European Union, due to insufficient awareness of the situation in the South Caucasus, on the one hand, threatens Baku with sanctions, and on the other hand, counts on Azerbaijan to ensure its energy security.
“When it comes to energy economics, Azerbaijan is the most important supplier of natural gas and oil to European Union consumers, on the other hand Baku is repeatedly subjugated and abused on the hallways of European and Trans-Atlantic Diplomacy. The Government of France has constantly demonstrated an anti-Turkish sentiment and has always been fiercely critical of the Republic of Azerbaijan,” he said.
He added that the October 18 meeting of the committee of ministers of the Council of Europe reflected once again a deeply divided world.
“The European Council has miserably failed to understand that the Azerbaijani population has been violently deported and experienced ethnic cleansing from Armenian Armed Forces in the early 1990s,” Tase said.
Canadian officials, just like the French and Belgian foreign ministers, are constantly threatening Azerbaijan and its people, based on bogus (fake) claims and unfounded information that is simply coming from the arrogant Armenian propaganda machine, he noted.
