An attack on the Azerbaijani flag in an international sports competition is unacceptable.
According to Azernews, Turkish Ambassador to Azerbaijan Cahit Bagchi said this on his Twitter account.
“The behavior exhibited by Armenia in recent days, the inhumane torture of the Azerbaijani soldier who lost his way across the border in foggy weather, and the attack on the Azerbaijani flag at the opening of an international sports competition cannot be accepted at all. We condemn it,” the ambassador added.
It should be noted that during the opening ceremony of the European weightlifting championship held in Yerevan yesterday, one of the organisers burned the flag of Azerbaijan. In this regard, the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Azerbaijan issued a joint statement and said that a decision was made to return Azerbaijani athletes to their homeland.
