Dear company management!
As is known, it has been more than 20 years since the historical lands of Azerbaijan were occupied by Armenian armed forces. As a result of the military aggression of the armed forces of Armenia against our country, 20 percent of Azerbaijan - Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as the adjacent 7 regions (Agdam, Fizuli, Lachin, Gubadli, Jabrail, Zangilan and Kalbajar) was occupied, about one million our compatriots became refugees and internally displaced persons. One of the most tragic events of the twentieth century, committed during this period. Nagorno-Karabakh and 7 surrounding regions occupied by Armenia are an integral part of Azerbaijan's territory.
The UN Security Council had adopted resolutions Nos 822, 853, 874 and 884 in 1993 on soonest settlement of the conflict by peaceful means, the liberation of the occupied territories, on the return of refugees and internally displaced persons to their homes. However, Armenia does not comply with any of these resolutions.
There is information about approximately one million Azerbaijani refugees and internally displaced persons formed as a result of military aggression and occupation of 20 percent of the lands of Azerbaijan in 1988-1992 by the Armenian armed forces, measures to improve their social conditions and living conditions, current needs, etc.
Mr. Ilham Aliyev, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan has repeatedly stated that we will restore our territorial integrity. The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US, are currently holding the peace negotiations.
During this time, the Geographical names of Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia were changed to Armenian place names by the invader Armenia and the so-called "Nagorno Karabakh Republic".
According to the investigations, it was determined that, overall 277 geographic place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin were changed stage by stage and have been subjected to aggression.
The Armenians carried out fraudulently the change of place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin and they did it in different ways.
So that, the place names of Azerbaijani (Turkish) origin have been totally replaced with the armenian names by the invader country (- Aghdam city - Akna; Akn; Hakaku; Khojaly city– İvanyan, Aigestan; Gubadli city - Sanasar; Lachin city - Berdzor; Jabrail city – Jrakan etc.), they have kept Armenian spelling variant of some place names changed during the former Soviet Union (Jojavand city -Martuni; -Khankendi city. - Stepanakert.- Yukhari Yemishjan - Verin Sznek; Almali – Khindiristan; Daghyurd v.- Sarushen v., (Khojaly dis.). Aghbulag v., – Mismina v., (Jojavand dist.,) as a result of literal translation were changed (Aghbulag vil., – Aknakhbyur vil., (Jojavand dist.,); Nakhchivanli v.- Navsepavan v. (Khojaly d.,); Boyuk Taghlar v. – Mets Taghlar v. (Jojavand dist.,); Chaykend v. – Getashen v. (Dashkesen dist) and sometimes they have distorted the historical place names by adding or reducing only a letter (- Gurzallar v. – Gurzalar v; - Buzlug v.- Buzug v. (Goranboy dist); Vangli v.- Vank v. (Kalbajar dist) etc.”.)
Unfortunately, during the investigations we came across some mistakes in Google maps prepared by your company.
So that, the names of a number of historical Azerbaijani lands have been changed and distorted. At the same time, during the investigations, it was determined that some Azerbaijani territories that were not occupied, but their names were changed by Armenians insidiously, and their names are shown with those names during searching on your map (Barda-Partav, Zod ashirimi – Sotskiy Pereval, Qaradaghli - Varanda).
It is contrary to all international conventions, decisions, and laws.
Dear company management!
Since Google is a worldwide known search engine, we consider it important to inform you about mistakes noticed on Google Maps. In particular, the mistakes are gross, and harm the interests of Azerbaijan.
We ask you to remove the distortion of the historical Azerbaijani territory names occupied by Armenia.
