The upcoming parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan will test the maturity of democracy in the country
The upcoming parliamentary elections in Azerbaijan will test the maturity of democracy in the country, Azeri ambassador to Russia Ramiz Rizayev said Wednesday. "These will be the first elections since Ilkham Aliyev became the President of Azerbaijan. The international community is displaying great interest in the elections. About 1,500 international observers, including [those] from the OSCE and the PACE, have already come to the country," Rizayev said. The November 6 elections are a serious examination of the state of democracy in Azerbaijan and the government is doing much to ensure that they are held in an honest and democratic atmosphere, the ambassador said. Rizayev also said Azerbaijan did not plan to accommodate any U.S. military bases in the republic. "The president of Azerbaijan has stated many times that there are no and there will be no foreign military bases or troops in the republic." Rizayev said. He attributed the U.S. radar stations in Azerbaijan to the protection of state borders and the country's fuel and energy infrastructure. "Azerbaijan is developing oil fields in the Caspian Sea along with western companies. This large-scale project is important for leading nations. Therefore, the United States and other countries are interested in stable conditions to implement such projects," Rizayev said.
