The musician said he takes pride in celebration of his 70th anniversary in Azerbaijan. Noting that he has been for 50 years on the stage Kobzon said he will celebrate these two great events on the stage.
“My jubilee will be celebrated in a number of countries. I will go on tour to Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and other countries after Azerbaijan,” he said.
Kobzon said he visited Martyrs’ Alley and felt sorry for them.
“The graves I saw in the Martyrs’ Alley distressed me. They were too young. But all this remained the past,” he said.
Kobzon said he will sing new and old songs in his jubilee and touched upon political processes as well. Commenting on the statement by Vladimir Zhirinovski, chief of Russia Liberal-Democrat Party which said the Nagorno Karabakh belongs to Armenians, Kobzon said he does not take this seriously.
“I do not take these thoughts seriously as Zhirinovski said it. If somebody else said it I could comment on it. I do not consider it right to comment on it. Zhirinovski’s political line is known to all Post Soviet countries and he used to make such statements several times,” he said.
