    The hypocrisy is real. Blocking military equipment to a NATO ally and helping the Armenians who are backed by the Russians? What? And could this interview be more biased? CBC needs to at least to be non-partisan, or did they get lobbied by the Armenians too?

    He's a pretty good and tough spokesperson… But honestly who believes Turkey when it comes to anything Armenian-related anyways?

    It wasn’t journalists perspective it was one sided interview. So after saying that Azerbaijan have 1 million refugees she says that’s your side of story. These are facts and the fact that UN called on Armenia to remove its military is not that convincing because Macron’s words apparently is more important than UN resolution. It’s disgusting.
    Canada did big mistake waking away from a billion dollar contract because of some pressure from Armenian lobby. I guess pleasing small group of Armenian voters is more important that financial well being of Canadians

    Thank you Ambassador for speaking up the truth, it mean a lot to us Azerbaijanis. Meanwhile, while he was giving solid arguments this girl without any knowledge kept saying it's your opinion. Journalists are meant to speak with facts, aren't they?! We have proof that more than 100 years ago France has officially recognized Karabagh as part of Azerbaijan. Apparently CBC is heavily corrupted and biased!!!!

    The land belongs to Azerbaijan and Azerbaijan has every rights to get back its land that has been illegally occupied.

    Great interview. She really took this diplomat to task. Hopefully this policy will be enacted & maintained. Turkey is ruled by Erdogan, a known dictator & bad actors on the world stage. Turkey will probably turn to the USA or the Russians to buy whatever they need to participate in the slaughter in regions they have no business being there.

    what kind of a journalism is that? such a biased, aggressive approach and attitude, so unprepared and common talk. And she has no idea what she is talking about. She wouldnt even listen to the UN resolutions and other proof of facts.. CBC should warn this lady. and kudos to the ambassador. he spoke so patiently and respectfully despite all hostile attacks. I wonder if this is about her Greek roots and Armenian ally friends. Whatever it is, this is not the right place to expose her real personality. She should have acted professionally. What a shame..

    She is strong and professional !! Thank you! Karabakh was historically an Armenian land! It’s not a war about several villages. You are just trying to continue Armenian genocide!!! People, just google Armenian Genocide 1915

    Thanks Mr Ambassador for pointing the UN resolutions for returning our own lands back to Azerbaijan. It seems the reporter is biased. I wonder how much bias is against an pro-Armenian interviewee. The facts are there. But instead the reporter like to focus on so called allegations by President Macron. Azerbaijan has been trying to negotiate for years – 30 years. What changed? Armenia's PM decided to ignore all the international laws and not negotiate. And now seeking negotiation when things not going their way.

    We appreciate for the suspension. Last time Donald Trump did the same. And now Turkey is able to build its own Killer Drones, Helicopters, Missiles and anti aircraft weapons.

    It’s such much hypocrite and hypocrisy.
    No Canadian condemned or suspension:
    Saudi Bombing Yemen ok
    France fighting planes bombing in Libya ok
    Israel bombing every where- ok

    Canada’s solidarity is all about “Christian” solidarity with Armenia

    Hey dear commentors, you may not realize but the last time some countries decided to not sell stuff to Turkish Republic (10 years ago or so), they went ahead and produced their own, thus Turkish drones are some of the best in the world right now. I think the ambassador should have thanked this biased reporter. ✈🛰
