Baku reacts to distorted info about Turkmenchay Treaty disseminated by Russian MFA
Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday commented on the distorted information about the Treaty of Turkmenchay posted on the official social network account of the Russian Foreign Ministry, News.Az reports.
“We are surprised and regret that the false information about the Treaty of Turkmenchay of 1828 was posted on the official social network account of the Russian Foreign Ministry on the day of the signing of the Declaration on Allied Interaction between the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Russian Federation,” the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
According to the ministry, such an expression as "Eastern Armenia" has been never mentioned in the text of the above-mentioned treaty and, of course, the Department of History and Records of the Russian Foreign Ministry is well aware of this fact.
“We consider it necessary to remove such false information and expect it to be corrected on the official page of the Russian Foreign Ministry,” the ministry added.
