ArmInfo.The Azerbaijani foreign ministry's "blacklist" includes 529 people from 50 countries.
Azerbaijani media outlets report that over 160 of them are media representatives. A study says that the number of Russian citizens is the highest on the specified list (over 130 persons). The following countries rank next on the list: the United States, Germany, Italy, France, etc. Over the past 11 months, 30 more persons have been "blacklisted".
To recall, the "blacklist" or the list of personae non gratae in Azerbaijan includes the names of the persons who are denied entry to Azerbaijan because they have allegedly violated the Azerbaijani Law on State Border and have visited the Nagorno- Karabakh Republic without "Azerbaijan's permit".
The list includes the names of different countries' lawmakers, politicians, journalists, students, artists, actors and representatives of international organizations. The world famous singer Montserrat Caballe is also on that list.
