Baku, June 29 AZERTAC
Former US ambassador to Armenia John Evans`s illegal visit to the occupied Azerbaijani territories is another provocation, said Hikmat Hajiyev, spokesman of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Azerbaijan. Mr. Hajiyev said the former ambassador`s name will be added to the list of undesirable persons of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Foreign Affairs for his illegal visit to Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia,
“John Evans has taken such a biased step under the order of the US-based Armenian lobby to deliberately exacerbate the situation especially in such a delicate moment,” he added.
“Having abused his position as US ambassador to Armenia at the time, this person is known for his pro-Armenian and racist stance. He has defended the interests of the Armenian lobby rather than the country he was supposed to represent. Because of his lack of professionalism and flaws, he was recalled prematurely,” the spokesman said.
