Leyla Abdullayeva, head of the Press Service Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Azerbaijan, responded to the Chief of Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces, APA reports.
L. Abdullayeva said that the Chief of General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces made racist remarks against the Azerbaijani people in a statement today.
"This statement is a clear indication that aggression, ethnic hatred, and Azerbaijanophobia are state policies in Armenia. Such statements about other peoples in the 21st century demonstrate how far Armenian officials are from civilization. We call on the international community to condemn this racist and chauvinist statement of the Armenian official," She said.
