Foreign ministry: Baku will continue considering visits to Nagorno-Karabakh uncoordinated with Azerbaijan as illegal
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 19 / Trend /
Azerbaijan's position on foreign citizens' visits to Nagorno-Karabakh, which have not been agreed upon with the Azerbaijani side in advance, is unchanged. Baku will continue considering them illegal, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Elman Abdullayev told media today.
"According to the Foreign Ministry's order, Azerbaijan's all diplomatic missions abroad have placed the information on their websites by urging the citizens of the countries in which these diplomatic missions have been accredited to abandon such visits," Abdullayev said.
A group of parliamentarians from Australian state of New South Wales has visited Nagorno-Karabakh this week.
"Australia has repeatedly voiced its support for Azerbaijan's territorial integrity and these actions do not reflect the country's official position," he added.
The Azerbaijani embassy in Australia was instructed to convey Baku's discontent to the country's leadership.
