Azerbaijan has the support of the NATO intelligence services in the countries of the former Warsaw Pact to mobilize the international press against the Armenians.
Since the beginning of the armed actions of Azerbaijan in Upper Karabakh – on September 27, 2020 – the Nizami Ganjavi International Center, under the co-chairmanship of the Egyptian Ismail Serageldin and the former President of Latvia, Vaira Vike-Freiberga, has been multiplying the dissemination in the international press of interviews and free stands of its members in favor of Azerbaijan.
But as early as April 2020, the former US ambassador to Azerbaijan, Robert Cekuta, announced in the center’s magazine that the time had come for Washington to get involved in Upper Karabakh .
The Nizami Ganjavi International Center – named after a famous 12th century poet born in Persia – was founded in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, on September 30, 2012, and its board of directors includes numerous politicians from the Caucasus, the Balkans, Eastern Europe and the Baltic Republics. This center is co-financed by Azerbaijan and the oil transnational ExxonMobil.
The intense lobbying work initiated by the Ganjavi Center on the Upper Karabakh conflict shows that NATO is surreptitiously backing the ‘people of the two states», Phrase used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoagn when referring to Turkey and Azerbaijan.
