South Caucasus Inter-Parliamentary Network to Combat Corruption established in Baku
Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 5 / Trend , J.Babayeva /
The South Caucasus Inter-Parliamentary Network to Combat Corruption has been established in Baku. The network aims to share experience among parliaments and assist governments in fighting corruption.
The network's founders are Chairman of the Permanent Parliamentary Commission on Legal Policy and State Building Ali Huseynov, Chairman of the Georgian Parliamentary Legal Committee Pavle Kublashvili, several Azerbaijani members of parliament and Anti-Corruption Commission Working Group member Alimammad Nuriyev.
The network represents the Global Organization Against Corruption (GOPAC) in the South Caucasus. The decision to open a GOPAC representative office in Baku was made at the organization's third conference in Kuwait on Nov. 16-20.
The network will appeal to the Azerbaijani Justice Ministry for registration, Kulabishvili said. Georgia is ready to share its experience with Azerbaijan on combating corruption, he added.
Azerbaijan does not need to share experience with Armenia, Huseynov said.
"There have not been any beneficial experiences in this sphere in Armenia. Azerbaijan is interested in cooperating with Moldova, Ukraine and East European countries," he said.
After the registration of the South Caucasus Inter-Parliamentary Network to Combat Corruption, the group will closely cooperate with representatives of international organizations in Baku, implement grant projects and hold regional and international conferences, Huseynov added.
