Daughter Of Azerbaijani President Takes Selfies During UN Speech About Genocide

President Ilham Aliyev was speaking to the UN General Assembly in New York, principally discussing the Nagorno-Karabakh War.

The conflict, between Azerbaijan and Armenia, took place in the southwest region of Aliyev’s country and lasted between 1988 and 1994. Aliyev was in attendance to directly talk about a battle which took place in 1992 in Khojaly, which claimed the lives of 613 Azerbaijani people.

However, less than two minutes into his speech, his 33-year-old daughter Leyla appeared to have become distracted. As her father began recounting the horrors of the conflict, his daughter used her smart phone to take pictures of herself pulling a shocked face.
