Azerbaijani Embassy in Georgia has released a statement on the incident in Dmanisi, Report informs.

The statement says that the embassy immediately responded to the mass attack on the “Omar” market belonging to Azerbaijanis in Dmanisi on May 16, 2021, and the incident around it: “The employees of the embassy visited the site, got acquainted with the situation and contacted the law enforcement agencies, as well as local authorities. Necessary measures are being taken in connection with the incident within the framework of Georgian legislation.
