He said the matter is thoroughly being considered.

“We saw the article about visits to occupied Azerbaijani territories on The Guardian and some tours programs on the website of Regent Holidays whose name is mentioned in the article. The website said the company arranges tours to Azerbaijan, as well. Any website could publish provocative articles against Azerbaijan, but we need to accurately investigate the matter to learn the company’s activity in Azerbaijan and its cooperation with other companies. Relevant authorities too are dealing with the issue. Media will soon be given additional information. It’s likely that Azerbaijan’s Tourism Association and local tourism companies would be told not to cooperate with this company in any way. We’ll take other necessary measures to prevent this kind of cases,” he said.

V. Shikhmammadov added that the Azerbaijani Ministry of Culture and Tourism condemns such cases that run contrary to the law.

“The territorial integrity of Azerbaijan is recognized by the United Nations, and foreign companies have to comply with the principle of territorial integrity while carrying out their business activities, arranging tours,” he stressed.
