GOOGLE MAPS "GIVES MORE GRIEF" TO AZERBAIJAN

PanARMENIAN.Net - Google Maps seems to continue "giving grief" to
Azerbaijan. This time, Baku was made miserable over the service's use
of Armenian toponyms in indication of the settlements in the Nagorno
Karabakh Republic.

According to Day.az, Google Maps committed a "gross error" in giving
double names - Armenian and Azeri ones - to the settlements.

The website went on to lament the fact that Google Maps failed to
fix any of the errors pointed out by Azeris and persists in allowing
news ones.

On June 19, Azerbaijan was 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."
