Azerbaijani official: Last 10 years is period of formation of conceptual frameworks in NGO-State relations in Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 25 / Trend K.Zarbaliyeva /
The last ten years can be considered as the period of formation of conceptual frameworks in the relations between the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the state in Azerbaijan, Presidential Administration Social and Political Department head Ali Hasanov said in his speech on the discussion of the annual report by the State NGO Support Fund under the Azerbaijani President.
"Today we can talk about the development of the NGO movement in the Azerbaijani society. The Azerbaijani government considered NGOs as its rivals and saw the opposition in them. Starting from 2000, the Azerbaijani state started to form policy based on the international practice towards NGOs, on the other hand, NGOs mainly clarified their position," Hasanov said.
Hasanov said despite the lack of aid allocated to NGOs, it can be considered satisfactory, given the current situation in Azerbaijan.
