Concerning the total disinformation articles published in foreign media about Azerbaijan prior to I European games, F.

If you remember the song contest "Eurovision" has formed a good opinion of our country.At that time also dirty campaigns conducted against Azerbaijan.But they could not affect competition. After the victory of Azerbaijan in Eurovision Song Contest 700 million people have become interested in our country, to find information about it.European games will also affect the image of our country. And in this case, our enemies will try to tarnish the success of Azerbaijan. However, they will not achieve anything.Azerbaijan makes confident steps and achieved many successes. Ten years ago, few people know about Azerbaijan, many do not even know where this country.But now the situation is quite different, and the negative thoughts stated about our country do not matter".
F.Akhundov added that Azerbaijan was always in favour of fair criticism: "They - "friends" of Azerbaijan and I think that they are being paid for criticizing our country.Naturally, we consider constructive criticism.The aim of detractors now is to damage the image of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan's achievements are obvious and just because of envy, some do not want to see them.
