BAKU, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia cannot be addressed with the language of sanctions, a senior member of Azerbaijan's leadership told an intergovernmental commission.
The country had huge wealth, resources, a vast territory and rich history, said Azerbaijan's First Deputy Prime Minister Yaqub Eyyubov .
“We understand the current situation between the European Union, the United States and Russia,” he said. "Nobody will break Russia. It will not bend. On the contrary, it will strengthen Russia even more.”
The European Union and the United States had to understand they made a serious mistake when they switched from dialogue to the language of sanctions, Eyyubov added in comments echoed by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
The language of sanctions was inadmissible, Rogozin said. "If anyone in the world believes he can lead the world to chaos and control the chaos, he is mistaken," Russia's deputy prime minister said.
