Baku expects that the provocation against the Azerbaijani embassy in London will be investigated in detail and the persons who committed this provocation will be held accountable, said Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesperson Leyla Abdullayeva, Azerbaijani media reported.
According to Abdullayeva, the Azerbaijani embassy in the UK was attacked by members of a radical religious group and this incident seriously raises the issue of the security of the diplomatic mission.
The security of diplomatic missions, including diplomats, must be ensured by the host country in accordance with international obligations, she noted.
In this regard, it is important that the British Minister mentioned the security of diplomatic personnel as a priority issue. As far as the expression "freedom of opinion" is concerned, the ways/rules for applying this principle in a free society, which have nothing to do with the attack on our embassy in London, are probably well known to the relevant institutions in Britain, which is an old Western democracy. Otherwise, the interpretation of any radical and illegal actions under the guise of the expression "freedom" can cause serious problems for the country's security, she added.
