The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan has sent a note of protest to Russia for using the term Nagorno-Karabakh Republic on the website of the unified information system of the Government of the country. Leyla Abdullayeva, head of the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, commented the statement.
According to Azerbaijani media, the Russian side explained it “as a technical mistake,” but it has not been removed so far.
A Russian governmental website has used the term “Republic of Nagorno Karabakh”, something it has avoided doing in the past.
The term was used in the procurement section of the Russian government’s single information platform in the defense ministry’s bid for buying maintenance services for the barracks of the Russian peacekeepers in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.
