Spring 2002 (10.1)
I'm writing to you from
Malaysia. I want to mention that there are some exhibits here
in the Museum of Islamic Art, but when it comes to the carpets
exhibited there, they are never called Azerbaijani carpets but
rather "carpets of the Caucasus Muslims." I suppose
it's mostly because of the lack of diplomatic ties with Azerbaijan.
As for the Armenians here, well, they even have a street named
But, in general, the public is very ignorant about what has happened
in Azerbaijan. Except for a few politicians and some of our professors
who are mostly from outside of Malaysia, very few know what really
happened in Nagorno-Karabakh and Azerbaijan in general.
About our efforts here: we are only eight students, all from
Northern Azerbaijan, and we're trying to increase the awareness
of the people living here. We are donating some books to our
University library as well as the National Library of Malaysia.
