“The Armenian barbarism continues even today. A toddler and her grandmother were killed by an Armenian shell this July. This is brutality.

This is yet another bloody crime of the Armenian fascism,” said Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev as he addressed the First Summit on Science and Technology of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.

“All our mosques were destroyed in our occupied lands at the instructions of the Armenian leadership. Photos of the destroyed mosques in Shusha, Aghdam and other Azerbaijani cities are a documented evidence of the Armenian barbarism.”

“Islamophobia has reached its highest peak in Armenia. Armenia is trying to expand its relations with different Muslim countries. But one should not believe their hypocrisy and lies. Armenia, which destroyed our holy mosques in Azerbaijan, cannot be a friend of Muslim countries,” the Azerbaijani President added.
