Abu Dhabi: Biased article about Khojali killings in 'The National' daily Friday, February 26, 2010

See Azad-Hye comment at the end of the article published in our News section here.

Caucasus conflict could turn tragedy into wider disaster

By Frank Kane

I’ve got to know Parviz Ismailzadeh pretty well over the past couple of years.

Parviz is the consul of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Dubai, and since my marriage to an Azeri lady he has been a great help in facilitating the documentation necessary to regularise matters for us and for our young daughter.

It was a shock how much paperwork was needed, but Parviz guided us cheerfully through the minefield of post-Soviet bureaucracy and has become a friend. He is an affable man, good company over a good steak, and he has taught me much about the political and economic affairs of Azerbaijan, a fascinating country at an equally fascinating stage in its history.

Azad-Hye contacted John Chookasian and asked him about the possibilities of arranging a visit to the Middle East (including United Arab Emirates):

"I would like to take this opportunity to introduce to Armenian communities and cultural organizations in the Middle East our musical services. We have been presenting our traditional songs and folk dances of Eastern and historic Western Armenia for the past 15 years to Armenian and non-Armenian audiences. All of our 10-14 music conservatory graduate musicians are from Armenia and the USA," Chookasian said.
 
"We would like to come to UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, Lebanon and other countries of the Middle East and present our Armenian music and culture to the Armenian and Arab people. We have presented many concerts and festival programs in various concert halls, universities, gatherings, where there was not one single Armenian in the audience and the tickets were sold-out!", he added.

Cultural committees in the Middle East Armenian communities are invited to contact John Chookasian and create unique opportunities for cultural exchange and art enjoyment.
