APA reports that Mahmudov protested, as he had not participated in the preparation of the draft Solidarity Charter of World Azerbaijanis. The scientist said there were shortcomings from historical aspect in the document.
“I regard it as an insult to participate in preparing such a document. The charter does not given information about the most ancient ethnos that participated in the ethnogeny of Azerbaijani people. It is noted that formation of the nation finished in the 16th century, while the formation of Azerbaijani nation finished in the 7-9th centuries,” he said.
Mahmudov also noted that the issue on South Azerbaijan, aborigine people in Eastern Anatolia and Iraq had not been taken into consideration in the document.
