Azerbaijan has "plumped" into WikiLeaks
Baku has called the last messages posted on the infamous Internet resource WikiLeaks, related to Azerbaijan, lies and slander. "Referring to the U.S. diplomats, WikiLeaks is spreading baseless information aimed at creating tensions between different states in the region. We have repeatedly denied this information. In particular, there have been reports aimed on the deterioration of relations between Azerbaijan and Turkey, with the purpose of giving false information about the leaders of Azerbaijan and Turkey, related to the Azerbaijani-Russian and Azerbaijani-Iranian relations and aimed on the creation of disharmony in these relationships. We have repeatedly refuted and denied this information: this is a lie, concocted and specifically disseminated lie. And now we adhere to this opinion" - agency Trend quoted statement by the head of the department of social and political issues of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Ali Hasanov. Information of WikiLeaks has reached the level of tabloid publications, said Hasanov.
"We have repeatedly proved the falsity of these messages by the facts. For example, recently distributed information that allegedly after the event of GUAM, the President of Azerbaijan has shown his residence which could amaze the guests. While this was held in the guest house at the State House Zagulba where there is no sauna or other beauties which could amaze the guests. This sole fact confirms that this is all lies. This information is false or someone else's fiction. Or there are the phrases associated with Iran and allegedly told by the President of Azerbaijan. We disprove all this and regard it as a special made-up, as a policy carried out in order to affect the relations of Azerbaijan with foreign countries, policy shaping and regulating these relations for their own purposes. There were used certain phrases referring to various U.S. state officials which we also disprove" - said Hasanov in an interview.
Recall, last week WikiLeaks had also unveiled report on the situation in other South Caucasus countries - Georgia on its pages. The author of this report is the U.S. ambassador to Sakartvelo John Bass. He had sent this report to Washington. Now, however, this document is available to everyone on WikiLeaks.
