The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry received a letter from Alexis Chahtahtinsky, the OSCE Project Coordinator in Azerbaijan, Hajiyev said. The letter says about the completion of the term of Chahtahtinsky’s mission on May 31, 2015.

The OSCE statement also says that France has not supported the extension of his mission for the next period.

Chahtahtinsky is a citizen of France.

Novruz Mammadov, Deputy Head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration, Chief of the Administration’s Foreign Relations Department wrote on his Twitter page that the mandate of the OSCE Azerbaijan Project Coordinator, Alexis Chahtahtinsky was suspended. “I have learnt that the OSCE Azerbaijan Project Coordinator A. Shakhtakhtinsky’s mandate was suspended. The U.S. Representative to the OSCE Daniel Baer rebuked A. Chahtahtinsky for posing on the picture next to the President of Azerbaijan. Apparently, if Mr. Chahtahtinsky had posed next to Ambassador Baer his future career would have been more successful,” Mammadov tweeted on June 1.

The OSCE Baku Office was transformed into an OSCE Baku Project Coordinator on 1 January 2014 under the OSCE Permanent Council’s decision dated 26 July 2013.
