forces in Nagorny Karabakh, an uncontrollable zone, contradicts the
interests of Azerbaijan.

actions of the American companies do not express position of the
state of US. However, despite of it, it is necessary to consider the
said question seriously.

Foreign Affairs with the request to clear the given question and to
inform the ambassador of the United States in our country, that
similar actions contradict the laws of Azerbaijan.
