The Azeri Diaspora has already started a campaign by sending the letters to the Magic Jack, calling it to correct the gross mistake as soon as possible.

“We were stunned and really disappointed to see N.Karabakh region of Azerbaijan to be listed under Armenia”, says the letter submitted by Azeri Diaspora member Nigar Gasimova to the firm.

“Nagorno-Karabakh region has been and is recognized as de jure part of Azerbaijan by four UN Security Council resolutions, several UN GA resolutions, as well as the State Department”, note the Diaspora members.

According to them, Magic Jack sends a wrong signal to the world and confuses visitors and existing customers. “Nagorno-Karabakh has been recognized even by international community such as UN, OSCE, PACE and NATO to be an unalienable part of Azerbaijan”, reads the letters.
