Baku Angry over Voice of America Film on Artsakh

A still from Voice of Ameria’s documentary film, ‘Karabakh: Peaceful Life near the Ghosts of War.’

BAKU—The government of Azerbaijan has strongly condemned a documentary film about Nagorno-Karabakh aired by the Voice of America, a public broadcast service of the United States government throughout Europe and other parts of the world.

“The program prepared by the Voice of America promotes separatism and aggression,” Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hikmet Hajiyev said according to Azeri media reports.

Hajiyev said the program is “unfair and biased” because it doesn’t present the Azeri government’s take on the issue.

The program, titled “Karabakh: Peaceful Life near the Ghosts of War,” was aired on Oct. 18 by Voice of America for Europe and the Middle East. The documentary film can be viewed here.
