Baku. Hafiz Heydarov – APA. The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has issued a statement on seizure of one more petrol tanker owned by the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic (SOCAR).

ISIS militants have also released the photo of the automobile.

Spokesman for SOCAR Nizameddin Guliyev told APA-Economics that this information is false.

“SOCAR resolutely declares that it has no petrol station in Syria, this automobile does not belong to the company. The car number also raises suspicion. Such events happened previously. Then it was stated that some groups sometimes use the brands of well-known companies, including SOCAR in their provocations. The recently released photos can be regarded as such attempts,” Guliyev said.

According to the previous information spread by Syrian mujahideen, the automobile owned by SOCAR had been seized. Spokesman for SOCAR Nizameddin Guliyev told APA that the logo on the automobile is faked.

“We do not have business in Syria, this automobile can not belong to us. When the photo is enlarged, it can be seen that this logo is faked. SOCAR’s logo was faked in other countries, too, it was prevented. Such cases show that SOCAR’s prestige is high and its logo is counterfeited and used,” he said.
