Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 27 / Trend T.Jafarov /
Azerbaijani Ambassador to Iran Javanshir Akhundov visited the Azerbaijani booth at the 17th International Festival and Exhibition of the Press and News Agencies in Tehran.
Akhundov got acquainted with the materials presented at the stand of Azerbaijan. According to him, the stand reflects a lot of interesting and notable materials that promote Azerbaijan and its culture. Akhundov said the embassy is ready to provide all necessary assistance to journalists.
Then the journalists informed Akhundov about the problems that arose with the Armenian delegation on the opening day.
The Armenian delegation placed a photo of the historical monument of Nagorno-Karabakh, presented as a symbol of Artsakh, a flag and a map of the self-proclaimed "Nagorno-Karabakh republic" on the stand.
Despite the Azerbaijani delegation's calls for Armenian journalists to stop tyranny, Armenians refused from complying with the request. As a result, members of the Azerbaijani delegation informed organizers about this. In turn, the organizers of the exhibition said that the photo was handed to them by an Armenian delegation in the process of preparation for the event and immediately gave instructions to remove the photos which caused a scandal.
The organizers apologized to the Azerbaijani delegation and promised that such misunderstandings would not occur again.
Then, the ambassador met with representatives of the Iranian Culture and Islamic Guidance Ministry, viewed an exhibition and visited the booth of brotherly Turkey.
