"Azerbaijan should change its name for North Azerbaijan, which corresponds to the reality", said chairman of the United Popular Front Party of Azerbaijan Qudrat Hasanquliyev.
He said this demand complies with the first article of his election platform.
"We can not speak of the united Azerbaijan, as it is not like that. If we change the name of our country for North Azerbaijan, it would signal that there is also South Azerbaijan.
Moreover, we would inform the world about the historical truth of our country. I think it is a responsible and decisive step for us, including for the territorial integrity. In case we win the presidential elections, we will take all actions for this idea to come true, for our party is called "United Azerbaijan" not by accident".
