Official Baku manipulates Karabakh’s friendly gesture of accepting the friendly Yazidi people in its territory, also involving the Iraqi authorities in its intrigues, spokesperson of the NKR President David Babayan told Armenpress.
“The statement on receiving the Yazidis in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic was a moral support because it is the nation that has become the inseparable friend of the Armenians and we can’t stay indifferent. As for the statement of the Iraqi Embassy in Azerbaijan, we also do not want Yazidis to lose a part of their historic homeland, the sacred sites located in Iraq. The authorities should do their utmost to prevent genocide,” said Babayan.
According to him, official Baku is manipulating this gesture of friendship of Karabakh and is trying to involve in its intrigues the Iraqi authorities as well.
Referring to the Embassy’s statement that “they recognize Nagorno-Karabakh as Azerbaijani territory,” the spokesperson of the NKR President stressed that the motives of Iraq are understandable.
“Iraq is in a very difficult situation, and the motives for making such a statement are understandable as the Iraqi authorities seek to preserve their territorial integrity. But it can have no impact on us. Each state has the right to have its own position and opinion,” Babayan explained.
