Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 17
By Elchin Mehdiyev – Trend:
Azerbaijan needs laws that regulate military journalism, said Arzu Nagiyev, political expert, deputy director general of Trend Agency.
He made the remarks at a meeting with media executives, held in Azerbaijan’s Parliament (Milli Majlis) on Feb. 17.
“The law could cover aspects related to journalists’ activities, their insurance and other issues,” Nagiyev said.
“Journalist assignment to the war zone is clearly fraught with danger, because anything can happen there.”
“Most of the media representatives, who have recently died in different parts of the world, were military journalists,” Nagiyev added.
