Nazim Ibrahimov, Chairman of the State Committee for Affairs with Azerbaijanis Living Abroad said that Azerbaijanis who live and work in Russia will not face difficulties after a new migration bill is put into force, Trend reports.
He said that after the new bill is passed in Russia, Azerbaijani President signed an order on measures to legalize the activity and residency of Azerbaijanis in Russia and founded a State Commission.
With the aim to solve issues coming from the Presidential order of November 22, 2006 On Solving Problems of Azerbaijani Citizens Engaged in Commercial Activity on the Territory of Russia, we visited Russia. We met with Grigory Karasin, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister and discussed the known decision made by the Russian Government on November 15, 2006.
Mr. Karasin said that the above-mentioned decision of the Russian Government is not aimed at Azerbaijanis and other migrants who live and work in Russia. The main aim of the decision is to settle the migration process in the Russian territory and bring it in accordance with the Russian Legislation, said Mr. Ibrahimov.
He said that due to the known decision of the Russian Government, operative staff will be hired with the purpose to settle problems of our compatriots. Representatives of the State Committee will pay frequent visits to those Russian territories where Azerbaijanis live and work.
