Azerbaijan averts illegal regime propaganda in Brussels



Azerbaijan prevented another event in Brussels aimed at propaganda of the illegal regime created in the Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia, Hikmet Hajiyev, a spokesman for Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry, told Trend Nov. 21.

A concert aimed at propaganda of the illegal regime, which was to be held in Brussels Palais des Beaux Arts, was called off following the proactive measures of the Embassy of Azerbaijan in Belgium and the Azerbaijani Parliament.

A visit of the regime’s “head” Bako Sahakyan has also been cancelled, according to Hajiyev.

“Armenia’s propaganda machine is currently trying to justify this failure through lies and different arguments,” he said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
