Per Christopher Stankina, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Germany to Azerbaijan, said that most of the Azerbaijani citizens who found political asylum in the Federative Republic of Germany (FRG) are Armenians in origin, Trend reports.
According to him, the number of Azerbaijani citizens that live in Germany reach 6,500 people, and they have appealed to corresponding bodies of Germany with a request to receive political asylum. The German diplomat said that despite the appeals, these Azerbaijani citizens have not been granted with their request.
Placement of 6,500 Azerbaijani citizens in Germany is a large number. After checking the information, it was revealed that most of them are Armenians in their origin, and not Azerbaijanis. After the German Government has checked and studied this information thoroughly, they came to a conclusion that the legal situation connected with obtaining the citizenship was complex, said the German Ambassador.
According to Mr. Stankina, these people want to stay in Germany. The diplomat said that they will impede the work in this direction, since during the check up they said that they were Azerbaijanis. But the point is that they are not, said the diplomat.
