The draft law on “Education of diplomatic missions of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Western Europe and America and abolishment of the Azerbaijan mission to the Paris Peace Conference” prepared by the government was discussed and passed by the Parliament after the recognition of the independent Azerbaijan by the Council of Entente. According to this draft law diplomatic missions in Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Italy, USA, Germany, Russia and Poland (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Ukraine, Romania) were planned to be launched starting with April 1, 1920.
However, grossly violating international laws, the Soviet-Bolshevik regime occupied the Northern Azerbaijan, bringing an end to diplomatic relations of the independent Azerbaijan Democratic Republic de-facto recognized by foreign countries and to its representation on international arena.
