Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 3 / Trend E. Tariverdiyeva /
The Russian Foreign Ministry reminds its citizens to remember that the positions of Azerbaijan and Armenia on the mutual entry of citizens onto their territories is seriously complicated by the unresolved Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, Russian Foreign Ministry official representative Alexander Lukashevich said at a weekly briefing.
He commented on the case of the Azerbaijani AZAL's refusal to register an ethnic Armenian Russian citizen on its flight.
"We recommend Russian citizens to take this into account when planning trips," he was quoted by Russia 24 TV channel as saying.
The case has caused great concern in the media. It even eclipsed more important topics, he said.
He stressed that this case is regrettable.
Russian citizen Sergei Gyurdzhian was not allowed to fly to Baku in late October.
Gyurdzhian was informed that guarantees for his safety are required to visit Azerbaijan because he is an ethnic Armenian.
