Azerbaijan Blacklisting Foreigners Who Visit Karabakh

BAKU (Eurasianet)–In a move to keep foreign nationals out of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, the Azerbaijani government is compiling lists of foreigners who have visited the country and foreign organizations that work with Karabakh’s government, the Bakililar news service reported on July 28.

Listed individuals who choose to travel to Karabakh can forget about visiting Azerbaijan, even if they hold diplomatic status, the Kavkazsky Uzel news service reported, citing Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry.

Foreign nationals who have a Karabakh visa stamped in their passports will not be allowed into Azerbaijan, the country’s Foreign Ministry warned. Bakililar news noted that several Russian pop stars who have held concerts in Karabakh will never be able to perform in Azerbaijan.
