Eurovision management corrected the mistake on their website, Culture Minister
Website of the song contest Eurovision has taken off all the materials on the birth place of Armenian singer Andre, who has mentioned it as the Nagorno-Karabakh republic, Azerbaijani minister of Culture and Tourism Abulfaz Garayev told Trend.
According to Garayev, after the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Azerbaijan has addressed the contest organizers demanding to correct the mistakes on their website, the latter have considered demands of Azeri side as legitimate and have taken the decision to take the article off. Andre will represent Armenia in this contest, the minister said. And the name of Nagorno-Karabakh was completely deleted from the website.
Autobiographical material of one of the contest participators- Armenian singer Andre was recently published at the Eurovision website. According to that material the singer was born in the so-called Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
Regarding this fact, Azerbaijani side demanded contest organizers to put an end to injustice and respect the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, as Nagorno-Karabakh is an inseparable part of Azerbaijan.
