Congress of Azerbaijanis in Sweden exposes Armenian lies

12 October 2011 [13:16] - TODAY.AZ
The Congress of Azerbaijanis in Sweden sent a formal letter to the Swedish Public Radio and Swedish Migration Board, expressing protest against the false and fabricated program on Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the Congress reported on Wednesday.

The program shows an Armenian family, who asked for political asylum in Sweden, but it has to leave the country as the Swedish Migration Board refused to grant a residence permit.

The representative of the Armenian Diaspora in Sweden claimed in an interview with the Swedish Public Radio that if the family is deported to Azerbaijan, the family will be destroyed.

It also contains allegations about the extermination of the Armenian population and ethnic cleansing in Azerbaijan.

The Congress appealed to the Swedish Public Radio to immediately correct the mistake, pointing out the obviously anti-Azerbaijani nature of the program.

"We are confident that neither the author of this program nor the Armenian diaspora is able to prove the facts presented by them that are a crude anti-Azerbaijani propaganda" the letter reads.

The Congress required to immediately correct the mistake and publish a disclaimer.
