Baku, October 4, AZERTAC
EU Reporter, an online web site, has published an article headlined “Polls show occupied region is main concern in Azerbaijan”.
The article says: “A wide-ranging survey has revealed that the Armenian-occupied area of Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding provinces is the most important issue for citizens of Azerbaijan
Leading New York-based firm Arthur J. Finkelstein conducted a pre-referendum survey on 15 September showing that 96.7% of the Azerbaijani people perceive Nagorno-Karabakh as the most important issue facing the country. Three years ago this was the third highest concern. The company’s executive director George Birnbaum said: “32,400 interviews were conducted in 100 constituencies by 900 interviewers. This is a huge sample.” He added: “It is no surprise that Azerbaijanis hugely support their president.”
