Azerbaijan, Baku, 3 April / Trend M.Aliyev /
In some countries, where they speak about democracy, free and peaceful demonstration are shot, member of Azerbaijani delegation Azay Guliyev said during a discussion of an issue of development of civil society at the plenary session of the second session of the Euronest PA.
He said that a member of the Armenian delegation in Euronest PA, Styopa Safarian, voiced unfounded arguments directed to the government of Azerbaijan in connection with the human rights situation.
"I would like to bring to his attention that judgments voiced in his speech, are absolutely unfounded. There are countries which, speaking of the existence of democracy, sometimes shot people, holding free and peaceful protest actions," he added.
He said that anyone can express his position, but all people must comply with ethical standards.
