[Presenter over video of Qudrat Hasanquliyev, chairman of the United
People's Front of Azerbaijan Party, UPFAP] The Baku city executive
authorities have not permitted the UPFAP to stage a picket outside
the French embassy on 3 September in protest over Armenian officers'
planned visit [to Azerbaijan to attend NATO exercises].

The city authorities said that Azerbaijan's authoritative bodies
have set some conditions to international organizations in connection
with the Armenian officers' planned participation in the Baku-hosted
exercises and that the conditions protect the interests of our country.

Hasanquliyev said that the conviction of the members of the Karabakh
Liberation Organization will not make his party give up its struggle.
