Azerbaijan urges foreign nationals to refrain from participation in Karabakh events
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry urged world countries to take measures to prevent the participation of their citizens in an international conference which Armenia plans to hold in the occupied Azerbaijani territories, the Azerbaijani foreign ministry spokesman, Hikmat Hajiyev, said.
Hajiyev said that Armenia’s plans to hold an international youth conference in the occupied Azerbaijani territories on September 14-17.
He noted that allegedly, the main purpose of the event is to discuss the problems and prospects of recognizing the self-proclaimed regime with the participation of young experts.
He stressed that usually, such events are mainly attended by Armenian citizens and two or three people of Armenian origin from other countries. The spokesman stressed that the real goal of the Armenian side is political provocation, the promotion of the so-called regime in the occupied Azerbaijani territories, and the use of invited persons as a tool for political propaganda.
He noted that Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry urges foreign nationals not to succumb to Armenia’s lie, not to become a tool for Yerevan’s propaganda and refrain from illegal visits to the occupied Azerbaijani territories which imply violation of Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, sovereignty and laws.
Hajiyev recalled that illegal visits to the occupied lands entail legal liability.
