ARMENIANS "GREET" ALIYEV IN ATHENSAthens (Azad Or) - Azeri President Ilham Aliyev and his delegation were met with angry Armenian protesters when they arrived at the Greek Chamber of Commerce for a meeting of Azeri and Greek business leaders, in the presence of Greek President Carolos Papoulias and Prime Minister Karamanlis.
The Armenian community of Greece heeded the call from the ARF Dashnaktsoutiun Youth Organization and, gathered at the venue an hour before the scheduled meeting by the Azeri president.
With Armenian tri-colours and the Karabakh flags waving, a large banner that read “Aliyev, Stop the Aggression. Nagorno-Karabakh is Already Independent,” the crowd chanted “Karabakh is Armenian” catching the Aliyev off guard as he exited his vehicle.
The Armenian community of Greece - especially the youth - had gathered to raise their voices against the visit of the Azeri president to Greece.
Aliyev's Azeri security team was very aggressive toward the protesters and pushed the Azad Or editor and Armenian photographers back and stopped them, as representatives of the press, from entering the building. The Greek police also held back protesters, who refused to move from their positions.
Soon thereafter, President Papoulias arrived and was greeted by cheers from the protesters, who stayed put until the conclusion of the conference and Aliyev's quick exit from the venue, where the protesters continued their protest slogans.
During the meeting, Aliyev reiterated his anti-Armenian rhetoric, saying that “Armenia has invaded and is occupying Azeri year=20year=2009&month=02 You can view the demonstration and the way the Armenians of Greece
