Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry's spokesman Hikmat Hajiyev has commented on the concert on “Nagorno-Karabakh's independence” to be held in occupied Azerbaijani territories, SIA reports.
“A concert holding by Armena, presenting its aggression against Azerbaijan and bloody ethnic cleansing of more than one million Azerbaijanis under the guise of "Nagorno-Karabakh's independence", is nothing more than an attempt to justify their crimes against humanity and acts of genocide.” the Ministry's spokesman stated.
According to Hikmat Hajiyev, organizers including Giuseppe Verdi's "Messa da Requiem" in the program of the concert, don’t know that this composition covers human tragedy and end of those who commit evil deeds against humanity. The premiere of Verdi's “Messa da Requiem”, to be held in Khankendi on September 1, can be only compared with performance of this work 16 times between 1943 and 1944 by prisoners in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (also known as Terezín). Unlike the Terezin Concentration Camp, in the concert to be held in Khankendi, Lyubov Kazarnovskaya, who tends to low royalties in a manner unworthy for a true art figure and prefers material values to moral values, and Yana Safonova, Vishnia Radosav, Nicola Uliveri and others will act as performers. Unfortunately, these persons become a tool in the promotion of ethnic cleansing against the Azerbaijani people.
