The Universal Postal Union UPU has issued a statement to protest
against the circulation of stamps aimed at having the self-proclaimed
Nagornyy Karabakh Republic recognized as an independent state. The
statement that has been circulated to 200 countries says that the
move is a rude violation of norms and regulations stipulated in
the UPU Convention, as well as of regulations of interstate mail
communication. The document signed by the director-general of the
union, Thomas Leavey, calls on the member countries not to accept
these stamps.
