Tista' taqra bil- Malti.
Cooperation between Malta and Azerbaijan would be advantageous to both states, said Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev.
This was said in a letter Aliyev sent to the President of Malta George Vella, on the same day that Malta celebrated 55 years of Independence.
Aliyev expressed his wishes for peace and prosperity to the Maltese.
President Vella also received a letter from Armenia’s President Armen Sarkissian, and a cable from Saudi Arabia’s Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud (MbS).
According to a report published by the United Nations, there is credible evidence showing that Mohammed bin Salman was responsible for the assassination of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Is Azerbaijan connected to Daphne Caruana Galizia’s murder?
In 2017, the English journal ‘The Times’ said that there was increasing suspicion that investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated after she revealed a connection with alleged bribery and money laundering taking place between the Azerbaijani government and Maltese politicians and senior officials.
In 2018, one of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s sons, Matthew Caruana Galizia had stated that Azerbaijani officials were being sent to observe and monitor what was being said during events.
Additionally, the Italian newspaper ‘Il Sole 24 Ore’ had said that there is an indelible connection between the Danske Bank, Azerbaijan and Daphne Caruana Galizia. The authoritative and widely circulated paper said that Danske Bank is the key player which links a ‘foul river’ of money of dubious origin to the investigations of the murdered Maltese journalist.
