The Azerbaijani President’s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov has said any incident of domestic violence cannot spoil historical relations of friendship and brotherhood between the Azerbaijani and Chechen peoples.
He commented on a brawl that took place in a cafe in the Russian capital of Moscow, involving Azerbaijanis and Chechens.
Ali Hasanov said the Azerbaijani government considered the brawl as an incident of domestic violence and believed that such incidents could not undermine the relations between the Azerbaijani and Chechen peoples. “The relations between the Azerbaijani and Chechen peoples have stood the test of time to become exemplary. It is evidenced by personal friendly ties between President Ilham Aliyev and Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, in particular by what they said during their meeting late last year…”
He said that developing Azerbaijan-Russia cooperation plays a crucial role in strengthening Azerbaijan`s relations with the North Caucasus republics, including Chechnya.
“We call on our fellow countrymen, brotherly Chechen and other peoples living in Russia to take advantage of the multicultural environment and conditions existing in this country for the sake of good goals that would contribute to friendship between peoples, and to stay away from such unpleasant incidents. “We confidently declare that those who want to exploit the incident in Moscow to sow hatred between our peoples are mistaken and will not achieve their dirty intentions,” Ali Hasanov added.
