There are quotes in this article which are not about Azerbaijan. I take it that they are from people who are Azerbaijani and are therefore being included for that reason. If so, they ought to be removed, leaving only those quotes which are about Azerbaijan itself. - InvisibleSun 02:06, 4 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Azerbaijan doesn't want to be enemies with any country. At the same time, we will not become victim to another country's policies.
  • Some people think we should be able to establish democracy in a short time, but that's impossible. Azerbaijan is a young nation and democracy is a new concept. The U.S. has been advancing on the path of democracy for a long time - more than 200 years. You've achieved a lot, but you're still working on it. Democracy is not an apple you buy at the market and bring back home.
  • Seven years have passed since the Khojali tragedy. On that dreadful night [February 26, 1992], Armenian military units supported by Russia's 366th infantry regiment, razed the Azerbaijani town of Khojali and massacred its peaceful, innocent residents including a considerable number of the elderly, women and children. In reality, the Khojali tragedy is one of the greatest human atrocities of the 20th century. Every effort must be made to seek the world community's unbiased and resolute position regarding this genocide. On this day of National Mourning, I bow before the sacred spirit of these innocent victims and express my deepest condolences to their families and relatives and to our nation. May God rest their souls.
