It should be noted that the national program was approved by the Decree of the Azerbaijani President, Ilham Aliyev on December 27, 2011.

Targay said that the OSCE Office in Baku monitors different areas in Azerbaijan. The shortcomings discovered during the monitoring are solved by the state through cooperation. But there are issues that require more time.
