Ilham Aliyev Is Dictator Who Never Hid His Genocidal Plans Against Armenians: French Senator Valérie Boyer

Ilham Aliyev is dictator who never hid his genocidal plans against Armenians: French Senator Valérie Boyer

In a powerful address at the French Senate, Senator Valérie Boyer unequivocally condemned the actions of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, labeling him a dictator with openly genocidal intentions against Armenians. The senator's speech shed light on the Armenian Genocide, the recent aggression by Azerbaijan, and the alarming silence from Europe.

Key Points from Senator Boyer's Address:

1. Armenian Genocide Remembrance: Senator Boyer began by recalling the Armenian Genocide that occurred in the Ottoman Empire. She emphasized the importance of acknowledging historical atrocities and preventing any recurrence.

2. Ignored Calls for Help: Senator Boyer expressed frustration over her repeated calls within the Senate and through the press to aid Armenia and prevent Azerbaijan's military aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh. Despite her efforts, these pleas were disregarded.

3. Disgraceful Visit by Ursula von der Leyen: The senator criticized the visit of Ursula von der Leyen to Baku in July 2022, deeming it a disgrace for Europe. She argued that Europe's silence and the gas contract with Aliyev paved the way for further aggression against Armenia and the subsequent blockade of Nagorno-Karabakh.

4. Open Genocidal Plans: Senator Boyer explicitly stated, "Ilham Aliyev is a dictator who never hid his genocidal plans against Armenians." 

5. Addressing French Foreign Minister: Senator Boyer directed her remarks to French Foreign Minister Stéphane Séjourné, highlighting the case of Anahit Apetyan, an Armenian soldier brutally killed by the Azerbaijani military. She also drew attention to the imprisonment of former leaders of Nagorno-Karabakh in Baku.

Senator Valérie Boyer's impassioned speech serves as a poignant reminder of the urgent need for international attention and action to address the ongoing threats faced by Armenia. The call for accountability and prevention of further aggression resonates not only within the French Senate but also on the global stage.
