Trend R.Agayev / The Embassy of Azerbaijan in Russia held a meeting with the Director of CIS Department of the Foreign Ministry of Russia, A.Kelin and presented a protect note of the Embassy to him with regards to the conference 'Challenge of Mrav' scheduled to take place on 27 May 2007 and dedicated to the history and destiny of the territory of Goranboy district of Azerbaijan. The Embassy's note says that the possible conduct of the action, which is aimed at presenting distorted information to the Russian community regarding Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and bringing harms to the Azerbaijani-Russian relations, will adversely affect the future development of the bilateral relations. It was stated that repeatedly conducting such provocation events very adversely affect Azerbaijan's public opinion and spirit of the Azerbaijani diasporas in Russia. A serious anxiety was mentioned with regards to the dangerous tendencies of the recently formed anti-Azerbaijan propaganda and the activities of the forces who are not interested in the development of the Azerbaijani-Russian relations. It was mentioned that such negative actions appear in the background of the progressive development of the multilateral co-operation between Azerbaijan and Russia. For this reason, the diplomatic mission of Azerbaijan appealed to the Foreign Ministry of Russia with a challenge to take complex measures to prevent above-mentioned tendencies and create an atmosphere which meets the spirit and level of the Azerbaijani-Russian relations. The protest note of the Azerbaijani Embassy had also been forwarded to the Foreign Ministry of Russia with regards to presentation of the separate stand of Nagorno-Karabakh in 7th international tourism exhibition in Russia. The note of the Embassy and protest of the Azerbaijani community in Russia was ignored and the stand of Nagorno-Karabakh was presented in the above-mentioned exhibition which takes place from 17-20 May.
