Chief of the embassy’s Public Relations department Terry Davidson told journalists that these elections arouse interests among the young voters especially and record turnout was observed during the voting. “Establishing this center in Baku we aimed to share our happiness and values with Azerbaijani people. We saw Senator McCain to announce his position and to concede defeat. The elections were very constrained, but despite that Senator McCain followed the American traditions and called his voters to support the winner. As an American we are proud that the candidate prefers national interests than personal ones and calls all the voters to be united for the development of the country”.
