Famous British radio station has made an official statement regarding the interview with Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan.
Day.Az reports with reference to BBC that the meeting of the Armenian President with a group of foreign journalists was attended by Moscow correspondent of BBC Eldar Ismayilzade.
Some agencies, referring to the Armenian sources, stated that Sargsyan's words spread by BBC-Azerbaijan "I suggested to President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev to invest into Nagorno Karabakh to demonstrate Azerbaijanis' interest in the welfare of Karabakh and safe life. Perhaps after that Armenians of Karabakh would speak for living within Azerbaijan"
had been distorted.
BBC notes that Armenian President answered journalists' questions in Armenian and the words he said were translated into English, while BBC-Azerbaijan translated the information from the original source that is from Armenian into Azerbaijani.
"BBC-Azerbaijan confirms that Serzh Sargsyan's words, said in Armenian and translated in Azerbaijanis, as well as other words, transmitted in the air, were not drawn from the context or distorted. BBC-Azerbaijan has the audio recording of Serzh Sargsyan's words", says the statement of BBC-Azerbaijan.
