France encourages separatists and provides arms to Armenia, setting the stage for another war in the South Caucasus. This was stated by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, quoted by TASS.
He made his comments in a welcome address to participants in a conference on “Decolonization: Women’s Empowerment and Development”.
“In addition to its former and current colonies, France is also destabilizing our region – the South Caucasus, by supporting separatist tendencies and separatists, providing arms to Armenia, imposing a military policy, encouraging revanchist forces in Armenia and preparing the ground for a new war in our region,” Aliyev warned in his address.
According to him, France is trying to take advantage of its permanent membership in the UN Security Council to weaves political intrigues in different regions. According to Aliyev, Western organizations use Paris to put pressure on other countries.
