Baku, September 2, AssA-Irada

The Mayor's Office of Baku has not sanctioned a protest action that the
opposition Whole Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (WAPFP) schedules to
hold outside the French embassy in Baku on Friday. However, the party
insists on holding the protest action. The WAPFP intends to picket
some ministries and the embassies of NATO member states accredited
in Baku in protest against the arrival of Armenian officers in Baku
to attend NATO military training due in September. The police broke
up the party's previous protest actions held outside the ministries
of Foreign Affairs and Defense as well as the US embassy in Baku.*
