Information on Armenian singer to be changed on official web site of Eurovision- Svantes Stokcelius
Some changes will be injected into the information on Armenian singer Andre soon under the letter by the Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Ministry, Trend reports quoting Svantes Stokcelius, the head of the Musical Competitions Department of the European Broadcasting Union, as stating by Lider TV channel.
According to Stokcelius, the competition is not political event. Therefore, the information placed on the official web site of Eurovision can not include political motive.
The Azerbaijani Culture and Tourism Ministry sent a letter to the organizers of the competition, where it noted that Nagorno-Karabakh was integral part of the Azerbaijan Republic and called on the organizers of the competitions to clear up the mess.
It should be mentioned that the reason for dissatisfaction of Azerbaijan was placement of the information on the web site that Armenian singer Andre was born in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic. It must be regarded as disrespect to the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan and support to the aggressive policy of Armenia, the letters says.
