The news on reception of Armenian Dashnaksutyun Party delegation
posted on the Lebanese President's website caused serious
dissatisfaction in Azerbaijan.

As APA reports, the reason of dissatisfaction is the expression "the
delegation was composed of Armenian ambassador to Lebanon and
ex-minister of the Armenian region of Nagorno Karabagh".

Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry issued official protest to the Lebanese
Foreign Ministry regarding this event.

"Lebanese Minister addressing the 33rd session of the Islamic
Conference of Foreign Ministers in Baku said his country always
recognized Azerbaijan's independence, sovereignty and territorial
integrity and recognizes at present. This was the best response to
this incident," Taghizadeh said.
