Azerbaijan allows some journalists to visit Khankendi to cover Pashinyan's briefing

Azerbaijan did not oppose visit of foreign media representatives to Khankendi to cover a press briefing of Armenia's newly-elected Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, the spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmat Hajiyev said.
 
Hajiyev noted that such media outlets like The Financial Times, Associated Press, Agence France-Presse have appealed to Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry with an official letter, asking to permit their representatives to travel to the occupied Azerbaijani territories, Trend reported.
 
“Given the respect of the mentioned mass media outlets to the laws, territorial integrity and sovereignty of Azerbaijan as well as to international law, no objection was expressed to the trip of their representatives to the occupied territories," he said.

"We hope that during the trip to Azerbaijan’s occupied Lachin district and Nagorno-Karabakh region, foreign media representatives will be able to make sure that ethnic cleansing was carried out against the indigenous inhabitants of the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, and the property, material and cultural heritage of the Azerbaijani people were destroyed. We recommend foreign media representatives to visit the completely destroyed Aghdam, Jabrayil, Fuzuli and other districts as well. However, previous experience shows that the Armenian side will not allow media representatives to go beyond Khankendi,” the spokesman added.
