"The OSCE Azerbaijan Project Coordinator A. Shakhtakhtinsky’s mandate was suspended,” Deputy Head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration, Chief of the Administration’s Foreign Relations Department Novruz Mammadov wrote on his Twitter page, SIA informs.
“I have learnt that the OSCE Azerbaijan Project Coordinator A. Shakhtakhtinsky’s mandate was suspended. According to diplomatic circles, the position of the U.S. Representative to the #OSCE was the main reason,” tweeted Mr Mammadov.
“The U.S. Representative to the OSCE Daniel Baer rebuked A. Shakhtakhtinsky for posing on the picture next to the President of Azerbaijan. Apparently, if Mr. Shakhtakhtinsky had posed next to Amb. Baer his future career would have been more successful,” wrote Deputy Head of the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration.
