Russia, Moscow, Dec.09 / Trend , I.Bragina /

Presidential Administration sector head Fuad Akhundov said media outlets should be responsible for their activities and avoid negligently interpreting the concept of freedom of speech.

He referred to recent reports about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, which appeared in various foreign media outlets. Recently, Euronews and the Ukrainian Inter television channel broadcast what official Baku has deemed an anti-Azerbaijani portrayal of the Karabakh war.

"It is often possible to read \comments in the Russian press that delaying the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is profitable for Russia. Such implications one cannot see in the U.S. or French media," Akhundov said at the European and Asian Media Forum in Moscow today.

He said one must be responsible when using freedom of expression, adding that these media outlets should be blamed and pay attention to their negative activity.

The European and Asian Media Forum organized by RIA Novosti and is being held in Moscow, and brought together leaders of well-known CIS and Baltic media outlets, and politicians and public figures. About 150 leaders of the most authoritative print and electronic editions of the post-Soviet space are participating in the forum. 

The Trend Agency is represented at the forum by General Director Ilgar Huseynov.
