Azerbaijan, Baku, Jan. 12 / Trend M.Aliyev /
The number of films about the Armenian-Azerbaijani Nagorno-Karabakh conflict and Armenian vandalism should be increased to familiarize the present and future generations with them, Azerbaijani MP Ganira Pashayeva said addressing the presentation of the film "When words freeze..." ("Sözün bitdiyi zaman"), which Trend Agency produced as part of project of State Support for Media Development Fund under the Azerbaijani President.
"We are pleased that the number of films dealing with Karabakh, the Armenian occupation of Azerbaijani territories, Armenian vandalism, the genocide that Armenians committed against our people is growing," she said. "Every step taken in this regard is appreciated very positively."
The film has been prepared in English and Russian.
"We must convey to our young people about events that took place during the past two centuries to teach them their story. Throughout the world, young people prefer to watch on screen, rather than read. Frames may make more of an impression, so the mapping of historical facts through the film is very important. Nothing in the world can replace the impression produced by the film," she added.
According to her, this film is a very good tool for foreign propaganda. "I would like to see this film to be sent to the Diaspora organizations. This movie reflects what has been said by foreign journalists, as well as tells about the troubles that have befallen the people on the basis of the facts. It is very important to spread the film in Russian and English languages," she added.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and 7 surrounding districts. Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France, and the U.S. - are currently holding the peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. General Assembly's resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh region and the occupied territories.
