The US Embassy on the publication of the newspaper "Azerbaijan"
"We do not comment on rumors," answered the US Embassy to the request of radio "Voice of America" on the statement in the newspaper "Azerbaijan", that in 2009, Ilham Aliyev refused to meet with the US President Barack Obama. With regard to the allegations in the article about US intentions to change the power in Azerbaijan, the Embassy noted the following: "We have repeatedly and publicly stated that the United States has always been one of the strongest supporters of Azerbaijan’s sovereignty. We’ve demonstrated that support in many ways since Azerbaijan gained independence and are committed to advancing our relationship as sovereign partners in the years to come.”
On January 16 the official newspaper "Azerbaijan" accused the US president that he brings personal scores with Ilham Aliyev for the abandonment of the meeting, and that the US develop a plan for the change of power in Azerbaijan.
