As stated in the Armenian Foreign Ministry, Azerbaijan’s statements on the inclusion of Shushi in the “UNESCO Network of Creative Cities” are another provocation. Earlier it became known that the Ministry of Culture of Azerbaijan intends to submit to the UNESCO secretariat documents on the inclusion of Shushi in the UNESCO network of cities and towns. The Foreign Ministry said that at the moment there is no information about Azerbaijan sending such a request.

As for the publications of the Azerbaijani media and statements of officials, Baku constantly politicizes cultural programs within the framework of UNESCO, and comes up with various provocative initiatives.

“The statement on the inclusion of Shushi in the UNESCO Network of Creative Cities is also not an exception,” the article says.

In this regard, work is underway, in particular, with UNESCO to prevent the destruction and distortion of the essence of the Armenian historical and cultural heritage.
