Azerbaijan President’s Press Secretary: Armenia Tries to Use Changes to Report of US Department of State for Its Own Ambitions
Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend A.Ismaylova / Azerbaijan President's Press Secretary, Azer Gasimov, accuses Armenia of using the fact of changes to the report of the US Department of State for their own ambitions. On 26 April the US Department of State restored the initial text of the report regarding human rights in Armenia. The sentence 'Armenian Armed Forces occupies large part of Azerbaijani territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh' was replaced with a sentence 'Armenia continues to occupy the Azerbaijani territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding Azerbaijani territories'.
Gasimov said that the agencies that served them received a relevant warning and Azerbaijan showed its severe position on the event.
He assessed as a positive fact the repeat changes to the report where official Washington once again recognized that Armenia continues to occupy the Azerbaijani territory of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding Azerbaijani territories.
