Azerbaijan`s Defense Ministry: It is inadmissible to mention Karabakh economic region as “Nagorno-Karabakh territory”

“We state that it is inadmissible to mention the Karabakh economic region as “Nagorno-Karabakh territory”.

 

We once again bring to the attention of the command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent temporarily stationed in the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan that it is necessary to refer the names of Azerbaijani settlements in the relevant information with the correct toponyms mentioned in the official documents sent to them,” Azerbaijan`s Ministry of Defense told AZERTAC.

 

“In the official information of the peacekeeping contingent of the Russian Federation, published on the official website of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on 27.11.2022, the official names of the Azerbaijani settlements referred as “Mardakert” and “Martuni” are AGHDARA and KHOJAVAND, respectively,” the ministry said.
