Eurovision 2009: Baku assumes the right to Armenian monument, Iranian mausoleum of poets

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan which urged Eurovision 2009 organizational committee to remove We and Our Mountains Armenian monument from the video representing Armenia, has assumed the right to an Iranian mausoleum.



It is not enough that Azerbaijan showed indignation over the monument We and our Mountains which is situated in Nagorno Karabakh, this country was not ashamed of showing Iranian Maqbaratoshoara (mausoleum of poets in Tebriz) in a video representing Aysel and Arash.



Iranian media and diplomatic coops have been already notified of it.



Besides, during the voting in the contest, measures were taken to prevent Azeris from voting for Inga and Anush Arshakyans. The extension to be dialed in case for voting for Armenia was blocked.
