Heads of Norwegian and US embassies invited to Azerbaijan's foreign ministry
Azerbaijan, Baku, January 15 / Trend , U.Sadikhova /
Deputy Foreign Minister of Azerbaijan Vagif Sadikhov invited the Ambassador of Norway to Azerbaijan John Ramberg and US Chargé d'Affaires Donald Lu, the Foreign Ministry of Azerbaijan reported.
At the meeting with them, Sadikhov pointed to the inadmissibility of the fact that some states assess some events in Azerbaijan from the point of view of violation of human rights and politicize these facts.
According to him, Azerbaijan fulfills all its obligations undertaken within the international legal framework, including ensuring the security of diplomats accredited in the country.
Embassies of the United States and Norway to Azerbaijan made statements on the events in the village Benenyar of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic and expressed their concerns to the Azerbaijani authorities. The embassies stated that on Jan. 13, a group of diplomats of the embassies made a visit to Benenyar in order to get familiarized with the situation, but they were not allowed to the village and forced to return to Baku. Embassies urged the Azerbaijani authorities to investigate the incident in the village Benenyar and ensure the safety of foreign diplomats.
Sadikhov reported on the investigation of this fact, expressing Azerbaijan's dissatisfaction that the activities of Norwegian and American diplomats did not correspond to the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
