Armenia not to attend Chemistry Olympiad in Baku due to lack of security guarantees




The Ministry of Education and Science has announced Armenian schoolchildren will not participate in the 47th International Chemistry Olympiad to be held in Baku from July 20-29.

It was initially reported that Minister of Education and Science Armen Ashotyan would lead the team to Azerbaijan.

However, the Azeri side failed to provide security guarantees to Armenia before June 15 – the deadline for registration.

Minister Ashotyan today called on international organizations to take note of this particular case and refuse from organizing international scientific-educational events in Baku in the future.
