The chief of “Sema-Associates” company Seam Yagubyan led the illegal protest action. First of all, Armenians sounded slogans against Azerbaijan in front of the new office of Azerbaijan Consul of America. Azerbaijani Consul General to Los-Angeles Elin Suleymanov and the head of the society Javid Huseynov expressed the country’s position. Following this, several Armenians entered the building of the society and tried to disturb the opening ceremony. Police officials could remove the Armenians from the building. Consul General told the APA he related the protest of Armenians with Azerbaijan’s increasing authority.
The diplomat also said that Armenians instead of holding protest action in front of the building of society belonging to Azerbaijanis, should better express their position on serious problems in Armenia.
Azerbaijan Consul of America will be operating in the south of California. Azerbaijani school and national library has also been established under the society. Orange County’s senior officials, representatives of Turkish and Jewish Diasporas of the region were among the 60 guests who attended the meeting of Consul held on May 28. /APA/
