Azerbaijani foreign ministry may include Music 4 Peace NGO in "black list"
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 4
Music 4 Peace NGO's activity is contrary to its name, spokesman for the Azerbaijani foreign ministry Hikmet Hajiyev told Trend Feb. 4.
He was commenting on the information that Music 4 Peace NGO will hold a concert in the territories of Azerbaijan occupied by Armenia on February 6.
"More than one million Azerbaijani people were subjected to the ethnic cleansing and military strikes in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan," Hajiyev said. "Holding a concert in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan promotes aggression and occupation, rather than serves the peace. It also violates the rights of more than one million refugees and internally displaced persons."
Hajiyev said that Music 4 Peace NGO must realize its responsibility and give up such provocative actions.
"Otherwise, the individuals, who will visit the occupied territories illegally, will be included in a list of undesirable persons in Azerbaijan," he said.
Hajiyev said that the issue of using UNESCO's logo on the website of this NGO's project will be raised for UNESCO.
