US DIPLOMAT BELIEVES IN CONSENSUS OF OPPOSITION AND MAYORAL OFFICE IN STAGING A RALLY IN CENTER OF CAPITAL
Reno Harnish, the U.S. Ambassador to Azerbaijan believes that the Baku Executive Power and people desiring to rally in the center of Baku should hold consultations and reach a consensus, Trend reports.
вЂ�I believe that the people and the Azerbaijani government will try to implement the presidential decree dated 11 May on the improvement of the elations practice. The president committed the executive bodies to allocate special places for ensuring the citizensвЂ™ right for free assembly,вЂќ the diplomat underlined.
Earlier Azadlyg bloc offered 6 routes to the Mayoral Office for staging a rally. However, a reply letter says that none of the routes was expedient for staging a rally. In exchange, the Mayoral Office offered Azadlyg bloc 3 routes: from вЂ�20 JanuaryвЂ™ subway station to Galaba square, Motodrom stadium, and stadium of the oil refinery plant Azerneftyag.
Leaders of the Azadlyg bloc held a meeting in connection with the answer of the Baku City Executive Power. It was decided to stage rally near вЂ�28 MayвЂ™ station at 16:00 irrespective on the answer of the Mayoral Office. The leaders also stressed that there was no need for repeated appeal to the Mayoral Office as they were firm on their ground.
