Solovyov and Kedmi: "Ilham Aliyev is the national hero of Azerbaijan"
Azerbaijan and President Ilham Aliyev became the absolute winners in the Karabakh war having completed almost all tasks set, an Israeli military analyst, former head of the Israeli Nativ liaison organization Yakov Kedmi said in Solovyov.LIVE program on YouTube.
"Aliyev recaptured Azerbaijani territories previously occupied by Armenians, he approached Nagorno-Karabakh; the status of Nagorno-Karabakh is no longer discussed. At least, it is clear that the status of Nagorno-Karabakh will not change under the influence of rabid and irresponsible people in Armenia. They had the opportunity to change their status, they had all the necessary conditions for this. They could annex Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia, they could strengthen their army, they could negotiate with Azerbaijan, avoid war without suffering such a shameful defeat. That is, its Azerbaijan’s victory, if not 100-percent, then at least, 90-percent victory, " Kedmi said.
Vladimir Solovyov agreed with the analyst, adding that Ilham Aliyev is a national hero, an absolute winner, who undoubtedly solved the issue: “In a direct confrontation with Pashinyan, Aliyev destroyed him. He looks more professional, more precise. He looks like a president, while Pashinyan is like a bad dancer who arranged a tour in Shusha for an uncertain reason.”
Yakov Kedmi said that it is impossible to compare Aliyev and Pashinyan at all: “How can one compare these people? Neither by education, nor by experience, nor by state thinking ... Aliyev did what no other person in Azerbaijan had managed to do before him. He solved one of Azerbaijan’s national problems. No one had succeeded in this before him. Thus, he strengthened his power. Even the most rabid supporters of ‘human rights’ as they called in New York, Washington, Paris, Berlin, London now will not even think that it is possible to change the power in Azerbaijan. Aliyev strengthened Azerbaijan both from the international and national points of view, he stabilized the power, proving that it serves the interests of Azerbaijani people. He achieved success. "
