Azerbaijan, Baku, December 18 / Trend , A.Huseynbala /
The Parliament of Azerbaijan created conditions better than in Armenia for the activities of the journalists.
"The situation in Azerbaijan for the parliamentary journalists is relatively better compared to the situation in
Kazakhstan, and even in Estonia," noted on Dec. 18 at an event held at the initiative of the Association of Impartial Journalists with the support of Fund of State Support to Media Development under the Azerbaijani President.
The head of the Association
Elshad Eyvazli said that the main purpose of the event was to study the international practice in covering the parliament. "For example, after the Iraqi journalist threw his shoes to the U.S. President George W. Bush, the Estonian Parliament introduced a special ban for journalists. Now journalists are allowed to the meeting of the Estonian Parliament, attended by the Speaker, after they take their shoes off," said Eyvazli.
"Not only the Parliament, but also the journalists play a great role in presenting to the attention of the world the genocide committed by the Armenians against the local population in Guba region of Azerbaijan," said MP
Vahid Ahmadov, who attended the meeting.
As a result of the event, journalists and MPs summarized the suggestions and decided to present this issue to one of the next meetings of the Parliament.
