Ali Huseynli: US becoming a country that supports terrorism – “I advised the representatives of the U.S. Embassy to use new, better glasses in issues related to Azerbaijan”

Baku: Chairman of the Azerbaijani Parliament’s Committee on Law Policy and State Building Ali Huseynli has commented on the latest statement of spokesperson for the United States Department of State, Jen Psaki.

Huseynli told APA that Psaki’s recent statement isn’t so surprising.

“In general, the position of the Department of State regarding the provocations carried out by Armenians in Azerbaijan’s occupied territories exposes their true face. They put forward unfounded accusations against Azerbaijan, instead of commenting on the torture undergone by the Azerbaijani hostages Dilgam Asgarov and Shahbaz Guliyev, so-called trial, military exercises and provocations conducted by the Armenian Armed Forces in the territory of Azerbaijan. In fact, not the U.S. Department of State is concerned over the Azerbaijani government, but we concerned over the U.S. government’s failure to comply with international human rights obligations,” he said.

The U.S. should put an end to police brutality against its own people, take measures against racial and ethnic intolerance. The U.S. is becoming a country that supports terrorism in the international community.”

Huseynli said as a chairman of the Parliament’s Law Policy Committee, he recently met with Charge d’Affaires of the US Embassy in Baku Dereck Hogan at the request of the Embassy and they discussed recent amendments to the law on NGOs: “I stressed the importance of these amendments in terms of transparency of national NGO’s being funded by donors. I advised the representatives of the U.S. Embassy to use new, better glasses in issues related to Azerbaijan.”
