BAKU: National Geographic Makes Gross Error Related To Azerbaijan


Aug 4 2009

National Geographic calls into question the fact related to
Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity.

Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijan’s integral part, has been marked
separately on Azerbaijan’s map posted to National Geographic
magazine’s Web site () calling into question
Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity. This error also contradicts UN
General Assembly resolutions. The error can be accessed via this link.

Unfortunately, this is not the first case revealed by Day.Az
readers. Previously we have stated on numerous occasions that some
Web sites try to indicate Nagorno-Karabakh as a separate state or
within Armenia "forgetting" that Nagorno-Karabakh is an integral
part of Azerbaijan’s territory as evidenced by history and approval
by various experts from not only Azerbaijan but also the worldwide.

For example, German professor and expert on Caucasus Johannes Rau in
his book entitled "Nagorno Karabakh in the History of Azerbaijan and
Armenian Aggression against Azerbaijan" notes that Nagorno-Karabakh
is an integral part of the historical territory of Azerbaijan. In
addition, the German professor proves in his book that the present
Armenia has appeared in historical Azerbaijani lands.

We hope that after the publication of this article National Geographic
management will take into account this fact and will soon correct
the error.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
