Google maps marks Artsakh as Nagorno Karabakh Republic, irks Baku

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan is in the throes of another fit: Artsakh was indicated on Google maps as the Nagorno Karabakh Republic.

The fact outraged Baku which hurried to call the move as Google’s “another provocation against Azerbaijan.”

The Republic Seismological Service Center under Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (ANAS) “raised the alarm” on the fact.

“We are concerned about such provocations against Azerbaijan and its territories by the international search system and the RSSC strongly condemns such provocative changes against our country on the map,” the Center said, according to APA.

APA further noted that this is not the first “provocation” committed by Google: “Such cases took place earlier as well.”

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan broke out as result of the ethnic cleansing launched by the Azeri authorities in the final years of the Soviet Union. The Karabakh War was fought from 1991 (when the Nagorno Karabakh Republic was proclaimed) to 1994 (when a ceasefire was sealed by Armenia, NKR and Azerbaijan). Most of Nagorno Karabakh and a security zone consisting of 7 regions are now under control of NKR defense army. Armenia and Azerbaijan are holding peace talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group up till now.
