Washington does not congratulate Azerbaijan on independence day
Since 1991 the president and the government of the USA have always congratulated Azerbaijani people on the Independence Day. It was so until 2016.
For the first time the USA leadership ignored the Azerbaijani holiday.
Azerbaijani government is upset. The USA is silent. Azerbaijani mass media forwards different suppositions. Some think that it is because of Aliyev's recent warm relations with Putin.
