  • Georgian Prime Minister Congratulates Muslim Clerics on Eid al-Adha

    The strength of our country is in our diversity; for this reason, we have always cared for this diversity and we will continue to do so in the future, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated while congratulating Muslim clerics on Eid al-Adha.

    As the head of the government noted, it is important that the representatives of all religions in Georgia work and care for the country's future together, and this will continue in the future as well.

    "I congratulate all Muslims living in Georgia on Eid al-Adha. Unfortunately, we are unable to celebrate this holiday in the appropriate manner due to the spread of the virus but, hopefully, this will be the first and the last time this happens. The strength of our country is in our diversity. For this reason, we have always cared for this diversity and we will continue to do so in the future. Our Muslim brothers are our brothers just like all other citizens of Georgia. We are building this country together; we are working and caring for the future of this country together. Most importantly, we are doing this together, successfully, and we will continue to do so in the future. I would like to once again congratulate every Muslim on this occasion and I hope that just as we have worked hard together so far, we will achieve a victory over this virus as well. I would like to wish you success, health, and joint work for the future of this country, for the future of your community. We must care for each other, we must respect and take care of each other's faith, and we must build this country together," Giorgi Gakharia stated.

    As Mufti of All Georgia Adam Shantadze noted during the meeting, which was held at the Administration of the Government, all Muslim citizens of Georgia are imbued with a patriotic spirit and are trying to make their contribution to the democratic development of the country, as well as to the creation of a strong, unified state.

    "We are glad that hospitality has become a tradition under your leadership. This pleases us and gives us more motivation. We too will spare no effort to contribute to the strengthening and development of our country. We are a country of great traditions, history, and culture. For centuries, people belonging to different faiths and ethnicities have lived hand in hand, harmoniously, as brothers in this country and everyone made their own contribution to the development of this country. This is still the case today. Every Muslim citizen of this country is imbued with a patriotic spirit and we are trying to lay our share of bricks for the democratic development of this country, as well as for the creation of a strong, unified state," Adam Shantadze stated.

  • Armenia, Ukraine and South Korea protest against the existence of bio laboratories

    The global coronavirus pandemic has not only paralyzed economic activity around the world, but has also revealed a large number of socio-political problems in many countries. Political scandals related to the existence of US military bio laboratories have erupted because of coronavirus in countries such as Armenia, Ukraine and South Korea. Recent protests in Armenia and Ukraine have again called for the closure of US military bio laboratories operating in the country. In their demands, the speakers expressed concern that the new US testing viruses in these laboratories posed a deadly threat to both the country's population and the environment. That's why the protesters demanded the immediate closure of American bio laboratories.

    Russian researcher Victoria Popova wrote in her article "American Bio-Laboratories in Armenia: Wonders of Multi-Vectorism" as early as 2017 that the entire network operates in Armenia - 12 bio-laboratories created or modernized with US military money under its Biological Threat Reduction Program (BTRP). In turn, it is part of the US Joint Program on Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP). Three of them are in Yerevan: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State Food Service, and the Infectious Diseases Clinical Hospital "Nork". There are regional laboratories at the black plague prevention stations in Ijevan, Gyumri, Martuni, Sisian, Artashat, Vanadzor and other places. The scandal erupted in Armenia after 14 employees of the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health (NCDC) and the country's Ministry of Health became infected with the coronavirus. The party "Armenian Eagles - United Armenia" recently demanded the liquidation of all US sub-bio laboratories in the country within two months from Prime Minister N. Pashinian. A scandal is occurring in Ukraine over the activities of 11 American bio laboratories in the country. A few years ago, the media reported that American bio laboratories had been set up in Ukraine, but this information failed to gain attention. This time, in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the opposition demanded that the government explain what is happening on the secret facilities.

    Two lead deputies of the "Opposition Platform for Life" - Viktor Medvechuk and Renat Kuzmin (Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine in the past), have publicly called on the Ukrainian authorities to provide information on the activities of US bio laboratories.

    "Independent Military Review" reviewer Vladimir Ivanov writes that after the collapse of the USSR, US bio laboratories were also set up in CIS countries such as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Moldova and others. Only American specialists have access to them and the results of their research. Local scientists and technical staff are not allowed to enter the areas where the most important and secret surveys are conducted.

    Foreign media has reported on the escalation of inter-Korean relations these days. One reason for this is the existence of American bio laboratories in South Korea. North Korea has once again requested the closure of US military bio laboratories in South Korea. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, for several years has accused United States of preparing the start of a biochemical war. As early as 2018, according to "RIA Novosti", the Democratic People's Republic of Korea accused the United States of preparing for a biochemical war on the Korean Peninsula. Pyongyang's suspicions were linked to a US-South Korean program to set up a network of military biochemical laboratories, which also researches poisonous substances. It should be noted that with the spread of the coronavirus epidemic in South Korea, the protest of citizens has intensified due to the presence of American biochemical laboratories in the country. Protestants have demanded the closure of American biochemical laboratories in South Korea because they pose a major threat to both the country's population and South Korea's ecological security. South Koreans still remember well how the U.S. admitted in 2015 that it mistakenly sent live Anthrax to private laboratories in South Korea. The head of the Pentagon, Ashton Carter, personally apologized to the South Korean Minister of Defense, Han Min-Goo, for this.

  • Farid Shahbazli: We call on the international community to strongly condemn Armenia's policy of aggression against Azerbaijan and its provocations on the border

    Armenia continues its provocative policy against Azerbaijan. On July 12, the Armenian armed forces violated the ceasefire and fired at the positions of the Azerbaijani armed forces in the direction of the Tovuz region of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border using artillery. As a result, soldiers of the Azerbaijani Army were killed.

    The statement came from Farid Shahbazli, Editor-in-chief of Azerbaijan's Editor.az news agency and chairman of the Reformist Youth Public Union. He noted that as a result of retaliatory fire and counter-offensive measures of the Azerbaijani armed forces, the attack of the Armenian armed forces was prevented. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces are monitoring the situation. The Armenian side has not been able to acquire any territory.

    Shahbazli noted that the militarization of the state border with Armenia and the deliberate targeting of civilians continue systematically:

    "Armenia is trying to involve its military-political organizations in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, to evade responsibility for the occupation and aggression against Azerbaijan. Armenia's aggression against Azerbaijan for 30 years and provocations on the border, as well as contradicts the legal documents of the military-political organization. Armenia is trying to justify its policy of aggression and deceive international organizations.

    Armenia has occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions of Azerbaijan by launching a military aggression against Azerbaijan in gross violation of the UN Charter and other international legal obligations. UN Security Council Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 demand the full and unconditional withdrawal of Armenian troops from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan".

    According to Farid Shahbazli, the provocation committed by Armenia on the border is another proof of official Yerevan's lack of interest in resolving the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict through negotiations.

    While the world community is fighting against COVID-19, this act of attack and provocation was committed by Armenia. This situation and Armenia's continued ceasefire violation prove once again that Armenia's support for the UN Secretary-General's global ceasefire initiative in connection with COVID-19 is nothing but hypocrisy.

    We call on the international community to strongly condemn Armenia's policy of aggression against Azerbaijan and its provocations on the border.

    Farid Shahbazli, Editor-in-chief of Azerbaijan's Editor.az
