He said Azerbaijan has questions regarding the activity of OSCE Office in Baku.

"Our position is concrete and clear. We have questions regarding the general activity of OSCE Office in Baku and as a member of the organization have the right to appeal for changing of the status of OSCE Office in Baku. A letter has been sent to the organization. According to the procedures, the letter is being disseminated among the member states. But this doesn’t mean that Azerbaijan wants to stop or freeze relations with OSCE.This is not extraordinary, everything is realized within the framework of OSCE principles and norms’.

Though Abdullayev did not publicize the questions of the Azerbaijani side regarding OSCE Office in Baku, he noted that this issue was discussed during OSCE Secretary General Lamberto Zannier’s visit to Azerbaijan.

Abdullayev also added that OSCE hadn’t responded to Azerbaijan’s appeal, yet.

Note that, such practice was in Georgia, too. OSCE Tbilisi Office stopped activity in 2008.
