The Coordination Council of Azerbaijanis in the UK appealed to
the Parliament and Home Secretary Priti Patel regarding the
religious extremists' attack on the embassy of the Republic of
Azerbaijan in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland, Trend reports.
The appeal emphasized that Azerbaijan has always been against
any kind of extremism, and the Azerbaijani community in the UK
strongly condemns the attack on the Azerbaijani embassy, located
in one of the central streets of London. Moreover, such an act of
vandalism flagrantly infringes upon the requirements of
international law, as well as the Vienna Convention, and
constitutes aggression against the state attributes and
'This incident will further strengthen the unity of our people
in the fight against radical religious ideology,' said the
According to the Council, the provocative behavior revealed a
security gap that the host country had to envisage in accordance
with international legal obligations.
'Azerbaijan is a secular state that opposes all kinds of
religious extremism. The attack coincided with the period of future
development of Azerbaijan–EU relations in the oil and gas sector
and the achievement of a decisive stage in the peace negotiations
between Armenia and Azerbaijan brokered by the EU, which is likely
to aim to damage developing ties between the UK and Azerbaijan,'
the appeal outlined.
Azerbaijanis living in the UK demanded the soonest expulsion of
religious radicals from the country in order to restore political
and diplomatic stability.
