BAKU, August 31. /TASS/. Foreign nationals who will take part in the concert of internationally renowned Russian opera singer Lyubov Kazarnovskaya in the city of Hankendi (Stepanakert) in Nagorno-Karabakh scheduled for September 2 will be placed on the list of undesirable persons, head of the press service of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmet Hajiyev said on Monday.
According to him, the blacklisting will take place "after a relevant investigation." Hajiyev noted that Azerbaijan "resolutely condemned the organization of the concert with the participation of Lyubov Kazarnovskaya" in the city of Hankendi, since it had "a provocative nature."
In early July, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry placed Lyubov Kazarnovskaya on the list of undesiderable persons. "Lyubov Kazarnovskaya illegally visited the territories of the country occupied by Armenia violating the law On the State Border of Azerbaijan. The name of the opera singer will be placed on the list of undesirable persons in Azerbaijan," Hajiyev said at that time.
