Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry has issued a statement with regard to Armenian Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandyan’s visit to Azerbaijan’s Armenian-occupied district of Kalbajar under the guise of participating in the “Gandzasar777” religious ceremony.

Axar.az reports that it was told by Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hikmet Hajiyev.

According to Hajiyev, Nalbandyan’s visit to Kalbajar district and participation in the “Gandzasar777” religious ceremony is a telling example of Armenia’s state-level politicization of a historical and religious falsity, noting that the original name of this Alban church found in Kalbajar is not Gandzasar, but Ganjasar. According to Hajiyev, this particular church has nothing to do with the Armenian Gregorian Church, a claim that has been proven with substantial facts by foreign historians.

Hajiyev also mentioned that the Armenianization of Islamic and Christian places of worship and other cultural monuments of the historical heritage of the people of Azerbaijan in the occupied territories and the changing of their architectural style and other features is a gross violation of international humanitarian law, especially the Geneva Convention.

“Armenia’s Foreign Minister’s participation in such an event shows that Armenia is not interested in the negotiated resolution of the conflict and aims to keep and strengthen the status quo and pursues the policy of annexing the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region and other surrounding districts of Azerbaijan,” Hajiyev emphasized.
