Oh wow like charles duke or claude nicollier give a damn about azerbaijan or ever planned on visiting azerbaijan. I hope azerbaijan continues to bare people from entering the useless country. I really dought that carles or claude care at all about this, also to Charles and Claude you are always welcome in Armenia and Karabagh the capital of stepanakert and the brand new airport are now rebuilt, remodeled, and open to the world.
