Baku. Shamil Alibeyli – APA. “While there is a relative stability in Egypt, we can not say that the country has achieved full political stability,” Ambassador of Azerbaijan in Egypt Shahin Abdullayev told APA.

Speaking about the appeals of Azerbaijani citizens to leave the country, Abdullayev mentioned that the majority of our countrymen have already been evacuated, but some of them still remain in Egypt: “Those citizens are also trying to leave this country. Unfortunately, there are some people who change their mind every day. We have invited everybody, when the plane arrived. Realizing the danger, a number of people retuned to the country, but some of them remained for certain reasons. In any case, we encourage everyone to return Azerbaijan. Though there is no concrete danger now, we are keeping the situation under control. If the situation in the country deteriorates again, certain steps will be taken.”

The ambassador also noted that none has recently been evacuated from Egypt: “We always keep in touch with our citizens. We have not yet received appeals to evacuate them from the country. In case of such an appeal, we will immediately evacuate them.”

Touching upon the current activity of the embassy, the ambassador said that the two persons are still working in the diplomatic mission. Asked about the return of diplomats, who left Egypt, Abdullayev said that this issue will be considered after the situation is stabilized: “Lives of people are worthier than anything.”

The ambassador said that at present, there is no danger for the diplomatic mission: “This is the East. I have been working in this region for more than 30 years. Now is quiet, but after half an hour any accident can happen. No one can predict this. The process should become stable. Time will show this.”
