MFA: Anti-Azerbaijan campaign by France will not remain unanswered


France can be sure that the anti-Azerbaijan campaign, the derogatory remarks and provocations will not remain unanswered, Aykhan Hajizada, the Spokesperson of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said in his response to the local media inquiry concerning France’s reference to Azerbaijan as a “dictatorship”, Report informs.

“Not only did France fail to offer an apology for such irresponsible and unacceptable remarks, but it also expanded the smear campaign against Azerbaijan in ‘Le Point’ and other local French media outlets,” he said.

According to Hajizada, the anti-Azerbaijan campaign waged by France under the veil of “democracy” aims to cover up the shortcomings of this country’s foreign policy:

“At the same time, while France is attempting to teach ‘democracy’ to the world, its actions, such as abuses of international law, neo-colonial policy, racism, discrimination, Islamophobia and human rights restrictions are well-known. Therefore, before calling Azerbaijan a ‘dictatorship’, France would do well to take note of its actions.”
