The non-regulation relationships are not constant problem of the Azerbaijani army, but a strategic line of Baku enabled Baku to change uncoordinated politicized divisions into a modern mobile army. The statement was made on 11 April by MP Elmira Akhundova, Azerbaijani parliamentary representative to the PACE, who was stating a position of the faction of sociologists at the PACE on the draft resolution on Human Rights in the armies of CE member-states, a correspondent of Trend, dispatched to Strasbourg to cover PACE spring session reports.
Authors of the report refer to a figure of 5,000 killed, while this indicator was taken from non-governmental organizations, who refer to unchecked sources. Azerbaijan is in condition of undeclared war with Armenia and 70% of the officers of the national army are in trenches directly in the contact line.
Azerbaijani military does not die of non-regulation relationships, but of mines and bullets of Armenian snipers, Akhundova underlined. 3% of the Azerbaijani army has been shaped of professional military.
20% of the Azerbaijani Army are women and it is not less important factor, Akhundova noted. 20% of the Azerbaijani military are with higher education, which is also of no less importance. She also made definite notes on the report, in particular, on the rights of the military for entering the political parties.
Army ought to be out of politics. We saw the opposite in Azerbaijan in the beginning of 1990s, a representative of the faction of sociologists concluded.
Draft report 10861 had been developed by a Bulgarian MP, Alexander Arabajiyev, and presented to the PACE on 24 March 2006.
