Russia's decision to affect Georgian Azerbaijanis as well: Azerbaijani MP
Azerbaijan, Baku, September 17 / Trend , A.Huseynbala /
Azerbaijani MP considers the ban imposed on the entry of citizens of Georgia to Russia via the land border with Azerbaijan as another means of pressure of Russia on Georgia.
"Mostly Azerbaijanis living in Georgia will suffer from this pressure," Azerbaijani MP Nasib Nasibli told Trend .
Foreign Ministry stated that in connection with the withdrawal of Georgia from CIS, the citizens of this country can no longer enter into Russia through the land Russian-Azerbaijani border.
"Georgia's withdrawal from CIS on August 18, 2009 automatically excluded the citizens of this country from the list of foreigners who are allowed to enter Russia and leave it through the checkpoints on the land Russian-Azerbaijani border," the Foreign Ministry stated.
According to Nasibli, part of Azerbaijanis living in Georgia, are in Russia, and mostly those who can not obtain a passport from that country will suffer. "Russia's decision related to the citizens of Georgia is a continuation of the unfair Caucasian policy of this country," said the MP.
