It would be better if people on the 'black list' of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry came to Azerbaijan, saw the people, realized the realities of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and understood that this is a very significant and sensitive issue for the population, French Ambassador to Azerbaijan Pascal Monnier told journalists on Wednesday.
In this case, those persons will have not a one-sided, but a balanced opinion, the Ambassador added.
"I know that the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is a very sensitive issue for Azerbaijan," Monnier said commenting on the presence of names of French citizens on the list which was released by Baku in connection with illegal visits to Nagorno-Karabakh.
He noted that France supports Azerbaijan's sovereignty and territorial integrity.
"Some politicians are invited to this country (Armenia) and then that country takes them to Nagorno-Karabakh. I personally believe that the 'black list' has always been a signal of displeasure. Because, these persons have unintentionally violated Azerbaijan's territorial integrity. But I think that exchanges have always been the best way of solving problems.
It should be noted that the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry's unwelcome persons list includes the names of 331 persons./Trend/
