The fact that Azerbaijan’s parliamentary elections were held in a peaceful atmosphere is going to boost the country’s stability, Iranian Ambassador to Baku Mohsen Pak Ayeen told.
Despite some foreign efforts to imply that there was tension during the election, the independent reports indicated that the elections have been held peacefully, Pak Ayeen said.
Baku’s resistance to unjustified pressure from the West proved that some Western countries’ policy to dictate and exert pressure is ineffective, he noted.
Azerbaijan held its parliamentary elections on November 1. As many as 767 candidates ran for 125 seats in the country’s parliament. The election was monitored by 503 international observers from 40 organizations and over 66,000 local observers.
