Baku. Rufat Ahmadzada – APA. Holding a concert in the lands where more than a million Azerbaijanis underwent ethnic cleansing serves the promotion of occupation and aggression rather than peace.

Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hikmat Hajiyev has made the above statement commenting on a report that Music 4 Peace NGO intends to organize a concert in the Armenian-occupied lands of the Republic of Azerbaijan on Feb. 6, APA reports.

He said the organization that speaks of “music for peace” acts against its name with the mission it’s carrying out.

“Holding a concert in the lands which where more than a million Azerbaijanis underwent ethnic cleansing serves the promotion of occupation and aggression rather than peace. Music 4 Peace NGO must realize its responsibility and refrain from such a provocative actions. Otherwise they are going to be added to the list of undesired persons in the Republic of Azerbaijan,” said Hikmat Hajiyev.

He also added that the issue on what basis UNESCO’s logo is being used on the official website of the project will be raised for UNESCO.

“Azerbaijan’s permanent delegation to UNESCO has been instructed in this regard,” he noted.

Musicians from Armenia, Russia, Germany and Argentina will give a concert in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.

APA reported citing Novosti Armenia that as part of the project "Music 4 Peace", the concerts are planned to be held in Yerevan on February 4 and in Azerbaijan’s Khankendi region, occupied by Armenia, on February 6.

According to the press statement, the musicians, who will attend the concert tour, were informed that later they may be banned from entering Azerbaijan.

The poster of the master classes and the concert that will take place in Khankendi has been posted on music-peace.com, the official website of the concern tour.
