On November 15-19, 2010, at the 5th session of the UNESCO Committee for the Intangible Cultural Heritage, the nomination documents put forward by Armenia contained a number of false historical facts: Monuments of the ancient Caucasian Albanian period presented as Armenian monuments, the name of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is part of the Republic of Azerbaijan, was mentioned among the independent states, and fictional "Armenian genocide" allegations were made. A letter was sent to UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova on behalf of the BUTA Azerbaijan-Korea Student Organization. The letter stated that Armenia violates the norms of international law and their actions contradict the principles of UNESCO, that it is necessary to suspend consideration of the nomination Armenia.
