Azerbaijan objects to California’s Highland City Council over recognition of Artsakh

Azerbaijani Consulate General in Los Angeles sent a letter of protest to the Highland City Council connected with the recognition of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, Azeri media report.

The City Council of Highland in California adopted on November 26 two proclamations, “recognizing the independence of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic” and “establishing a sister city relationship with the city of Berdzor in the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.”

The Consulate General of Azerbaijan urged the Council members “to rescind the said biased proclamations, which not only violate the U.S. Constitution, but also strongly contradict the spirit of strong and successful partnership between Azerbaijan and the United States.”
