AZERBAIJAN PROTESTS TO TANZANIA OVER NAGORNO KARABAKH
Earlier an African country, Tanzania, had announced that Nagorno Karabakh, being free and separate country must be on the list of countries requiring a visa to visit, and it was done as was mentioned.
Naturally Azerbaijan expressed protest to Tanzania saying that it is "Azerbaijani territory" and shouldn't be separated.
According to APA, privately-owned Baku-based agency, protest notes were issued by Azerbaijan's embassies in Egypt and the Republic of South Africa, and also its permanent representative office at the UN.
APA adds that according to Elman Abdullayev, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, it was a "technical mistake" by the Tanzanian government and Azerbaijan hoped it would soon be corrected.
