False Armenian maps claiming to Karabakh and Nakhchivan on sale in China's Taiwan and Hong Kong

"False maps, globes and school textbooks showing Azerbaijani regions -Nakhchivan and Karabakh- as Armenian territories are on sale in East and Southeast Asia," said Akbar Huseynli, an Azerbaijani living in Hong Kong.

He told APA that these school facilities are sold in Hong-Kong, Shanghai and Taiwan.
"African, European, Arabian nations and even Armenians have a number of economic and cultural societies in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Most of people living here are unaware of Azerbaijanis and Azerbaijan."

He said that articles on Azerbaijani oil have recently spread in media but Southeast Asia is not well known here.

"The reason may be that Taiwan has no political-economic ties with Azerbaijan. It is a pity that Azerbaijan plays no part in the activities of the most competitive trade center."

He regretted that there is no Azerbaijani Diaspora in Southeast Asia while there are about 17 diasporas in Belgium and the Netherlands. A lot of Azerbaijani businessmen are active in China but they have not gathered together to form a Diaspora.
