Anna Hakobyan, the Armenian premier’s wife, has responded to Azerbaijan’s First Lady, Mehriban Aliyev’s message that she is dreaming of listening to mugham in Artsakh.
Mrs Hakobyan decided to make Mrs Aliyev’s dream come true and invited her to Artsakh.
“Our people, Artsakh people, can host and honor guests very well. And one of the practices of our hospitality is honoring the guests by performing his or her favorite music,” Mrs Hakobyan wrote.
She stressed that her invitation is in force and if Mrs Aliyeva accepts it, Mrs Hakobyan will pay a visit to Baku.
“But, if Mehriban Aliyeva means that their dream is coming to Artsakh to listen to mugham doing so by means of war, I can assure you that this dream will never come true. And if they unleash another war, new settlements will probably appear when listening to mugham will be castles in the air for them. If Mehriban Aliyeva, on her own behalf and on behalf of her people, says she is dreaming of listening to mugham in Artsakh, the only way to make this dream come true is peace,” Mrs Hakobyan’s message reads.
