/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Azeri functionaries make Armenians living in
Azerbaijan leave the country, says the US State Department annual
report on human rights record in the world. According to the report,
some 20 thousand Armenians live in Azerbaijan. These are mostly
people from mixed families. "The functionaries often demand bribes
from them for issuing documents on Azeri citizenship. 200-250 such
families are forced to leave Azerbaijan annually," the document
notes.
