President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev claimed that there are certain foreign forces interested in violation of the socio-political stability in Azerbaijan, Turan reports.
"Today, the successful development of Azerbaijan is perceived not by all. Domestically, there are national traitors, who have sold their conscience to foreign anti-Azerbaijani circles. There are foreign circles, who try to break the stability in Azerbaijan and to make the country dependent," Aliyev said on August 28 at a meeting with young people in the Beylagan region.
"Now it is no secret that through various funds practical steps are taken to create mass unrest and conflict in different countries. If 10 years ago, it was done secretly, at the present time all the masks have dropped and they are not hiding anything. The aim is that countries with rich natural resources, a lot of potential and favorable geographical position, should come under the influence and operate under the dictation of others. And this leads to the death of these countries. We know this from recent history. Before our eyes in our neighborhood, there are certain events leading to this bad end", he said.
According to Aliyev, under the guise of aid millions of dollars are annually ferried to Azerbaijan. "This money goes into the pockets of opposition organizations. However, our opposition is so fond of money, that 70-80% of the grants are pocketed. Therefore, the money is not spent the way some donors want. But it is a fact and we know about it - how much money comes to bank accounts, to whom it comes and where it goes then. And be aware that these tools work against the interests of our country," said Aliyev.
