An Armenian scientist has been banned from participating in an international conference in Italy for conducting a research in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The conference to be held in the city of Florence is dedicated to funeral monuments and kurgans. 

Nzhde Yeranyan, a member of the archaeological group of the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnography of the National Academy of Sciences, will not be allowed to attend the event because of conducting a research in Karabakh.

The scientist said he was not allowed to participate in the conference on the basis of UNESCO’s decision banning researches in conflict areas.
