YEREVAN — The Universal Postal Union (UPU) has decided not to register the “Azerbaijan 2020” postage stamps issued by Azerbaijan in their database, as those stamps contradict the relevant provisions of the Union Convention and Code of Conduct, the Ministry of High-Tech Industry informs.
The Union has asked Azerbaijan to reconsider issuing the stamps.
Following the military aggression against Artsakh unleashed by Azerbaijan in 2020, the Ministry of High Technologies of Armenia and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent letters to the Union drawing attention to “obvious hatred and xenophobia against Armenians” in the postage stamps issued by the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies of Azerbaijan.
The leadership of the Universal Postal Union informed the Armenian side about their about-stated decision.
And yet Azerbaijan is a country that claims it protects human rights and treats minorities well.
There is honour in a stamp that represents a country as this stamp makes its’ way around the world.
Azerbaijan has no honour. I have been collecting world stamps since I was 10 years old. Never have I seen a stamp in my extensive collection that dishonors a country. These Azeri are really something else. What, do we know. Perhaps paranoia has gotten the better of them.
