Baku. Elnur Mammadli – APA. Youth Organization of the World Azerbaijanis Congress held a roundtable on the discussions concerning the votes sent from Azerbaijan to Armenia’s representative in Eurovision-2009, APA reports. Spokesman for the World Azerbaijanis Congress Alirza Amanbayli said it had been a planned step. Armenian intelligence bodies and some NGOs in Azerbaijan did this to damage the image of Azerbaijan.
“They knew that they would be called to the law-enforcement bodies. Now they are trying to exaggerate the problem. In fact they did not undergo pressure, they were interrogated and no one was arrested,” he said.
Amanbayli said protest against Azerbaijani singers should not serve as a basis to vote for Armenia’s representative.

Independent journalist Azer Hesret said 43 people actually shared Armenians’ position.
“National Security Ministry did its work, interrogated them. Those persons should be ashamed of their actions and should not have publicized it,” he said.
Azer Hesret said the international organizations will again try to include Azerbaijan in the “black list”.

The representatives of other youth organizations also reproached 43 people who voted for Armenia’s representative.
