Baku/09.09.19/Turan: “If the enemy went inside, sooner or later he would show his enmity. For he is not just an adversary, but he is sick. ” According to a number of local media, one of the founders of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party, MP Eldar Ibrahimov, said. Ibragimov believes that the Azerbaijani government could “outbid” the entire opposition, which “works on foreign forces.” “But if we even bribed them, that is, forces that do not want the development of Azerbaijan, stability. If we even paid them more, they would still not serve the national interests,” Ibrahimov said. He considers the opposition a tool in the hands of foreign forces. “Their goal is to get the most money from foreign forces and seize power.” Further, Ibrahimov notes that he does not trust the opposition, who sided with the authorities.
“Some went over to our side, earned money, even became deputies. But I have to say that the enemy cannot become a friend. The enemy will go inside, but one day he will again show his hostility. Therefore, we do not need their friendship, “concluded Ibrahimov. This statement of the deputy provoked a stormy reaction in society, causing active discussions in social networks, despite the fact that Ibrahimov did not name specific names. In turn, the assistant to the president on socio-political issues, Ali Hasanov, hastened to soften Ibrahimov”s statement, saying that his statements “did not reflect the point of view of the entire party.” The party”s position on cooperation with other political forces was developed back in 1992. Then Aliyev called on all the healthy forces of the country to unite around the interests of the state. While in power, Aliyev created the conditions for the NAP and the ruling team to be represented by everyone with the necessary abilities, ready to serve civil peace and national unity. Ilham Aliyev continued this policy. According to Ali Hasanov, the authorities are open for dialogue and cooperation with each group or persons who want to serve the state and statehood. The government does not consider its political opponents to be enemies and considers it possible to cooperate with them on national issues, Hasanov noted.
