Azerbaijani Official Urges Georgia To Curb Armenian Access To Black Sea

YEREVAN -- Azerbaijani Ambassador to Georgia Namig Aliyev has urged the Georgian government to restrict Armenia's economic access to the Black Sea coast and stop tens of thousands of Armenians from traveling there every year, RFE/RL's Armenian Service reports. Aliyev claimed the Armenian presence in Georgia's Black Sea region of Ajara is part of a long-term plan to annex the area. "For Armenians, access to the Black Sea means the realization of the idea of a 'Greater Armenia from sea to sea,'" Azerbaijan's APA news agency reported on February 24.
