After the trilateral statement of November 9, 2020 in Artsakh, concerns about the preservation of objects of Armenian religious and cultural heritage in the territories under the control of Azerbaijan still persist, this was stated in a new report on Azerbaijan published by the US Commission on International Religious Freedoms. This is reported by 1lurer. The US Commission on International Religious Freedoms has not escaped the fact that Baku creates many obstacles for pilgrims preventing them from entering Armenian churches. In 2021, the Azerbaijani government unexpectedly announced a change in the restrictive law on religious freedom, effectively introducing new restrictions for religious communities. The report published by the US Commission on International Religious Freedoms summarizes with a call to include Azerbaijan in the US State Department’s special control list for serious violations of religious freedom in the country and for their tolerance by the state.
