Statue of Azerbaijan’s strongman the string attached to foreign aid
And that’s the secret to Aliyev’s success — nobody really knows who he is.
A second Azerbaijani statue appears in the other park they paid to renovate, Tlaxcoaque park in downtown Mexico City.
It depicts a woman, her arms uplifted in mourning, commemorating Khojaly, a village where hundreds of Azerbaijanis reportedly were killed during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.
Advocates say a monument to Mexican suffering would have been more appropriate for a site once used as a police interrogation and torture center.
The office of Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard, who accepted the donations and attended the inauguration of both sites, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
But at the inauguration of the first monument, Mr. Ebrard said “we are very thankful to the Republic of Azerbaijan, because the truth is we haven’t received an investment this big” from a foreign government before.
