Armenian Khachkar Exhibit to be Held in All European Capitals

YEREVAN (Yerkir)–The recently held exhibition devoted to the Armenian cemetery in Old Julfa in Nakhichevan–destroyed and desecrated by Azerbaijan–will tour all major European capitals, said Armenian Foreign Minister Vartan Oskanian. He also added that PACE Monitoring Group on protection of cultural values will visit the region in 2007. "Azerbaijan put forward conditions: if the group wants to visit Nakhichevan it must also visit Nagorno Karabakh, since, as Baku says, there are cultural monumen’s in Karabakh, which have been destroyed by the Armenia’s. But the neighboring country evades the fact that distractions in Nagorno Karabakh are the result of war. At the same time the distraction of the Armenian cemetery in Nakhichevan is the policy of Azeri authorities," Oskanian stressed
