Baku - APA. On 26 February Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud
Mammad-Guliyev received Vladimir Dorokhin, Ambassador of the Russian
Federation to Azerbaijan.

The Foreign Ministry's press service told APA that at the meeting
Deputy Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev expressed concerns and protest
of Azerbaijani side over the publication of an online article entitled
"Nagorno Karabakh is used to being unrecognized for 25 years" on the
official website of Ria Novosti, Russian State News Agency on the
eve of the anniversary of Khojaly Genocide.

Deputy Minister brought to Ambassador's attention the fact that
recently there has been an increase in the number of articles in the
Russian media which are directed against Azerbaijan. He underlined
that the publication of the article on the website of the Russian State
News Agency is particularly regretful and overshadows the activity of
the Russian Federation towards the resolution of the conflict between
Armenia and Azerbaijan, as Co-Chair of the OSCE Minsk Group.

Deputy Minister also noted that the article does not reflect the
reality, includes calls for encouraging separatism and extremism
and disrespects the principle of territorial integrity, fundamental
principle of international law.

Referring to the bilateral agreement on "Friendship, cooperation
and mutual security" signed between the Republic of Azerbaijan and
the Russian Federation on 3 July 1997, Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign
Minister reminded that Article 5 of the said agreement says that both
states condemn all forms of separatism and take the obligation not
to support separatist movements directed against the sovereignty,
independence and territorial integrity of the two states and to ban
and prevent the establishment and activities of such organisations,
groups and individuals in their territories. It was underlined that the
provocative article published online does not fit with the spirit of
friendship and cooperation between Azerbaijan and Russia and damages
the long-established good neighborly relations in contradiction of
the essence and articles of the aforesaid bilateral agreement.

Presenting a note of protest to the Russian Ambassador, Deputy
Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev expressed hope that the issue will
be closely examined and appropriate measures will be taken by the
Russian Federation.
