Armenian – Azerbaijani relations in a snapshot

Armenian group plans to hold an Azerbaijani film festival in Yerevan, while Azerbaijani law-enforcement bodies interrogate a young man who dared to vote for Armenia in the Eurovision song contest held this spring. Below is a screenshot from the English language version of the RFE/RL’s Armenian service website made on August 16, 2009.


There’s not much to add to this, except that Armenia granted 1 point to Azerbaijan at the song contest, which means over 1000 people voted for it, while in Azerbaijan only 43 people voted. You can also be certain, that nobody from Azerbaijan will vote for Armenia next year. Who would want to be called for interrogations by Security Services just for innocent SMS voting?
