The member of the Azerbaijani delegation in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), MP Aydin Mirzazade, exclusively informed Trend that during the meeting of the PACE Ad Hoc Committee for Migrants and Refugees held in Paris, the report of the Netherlands Deputy Leo Platvoet regarding missing people in South Caucasus received number of amendments.
According to him, the report is objective and reflects the reality. The reporter has given preference to the objectiveness. He has referred to the documents with exact figures. It is the result of the propaganda held by Azerbaijan abroad and the works implemented in the Council of Europe, he said.
According to him, the report describes that the missing people in South Caucasus is firstly linked with the territorial conflicts. Platvoet has mentioned in his report that the Armenian Troops have been placed in Nagorno-Karabakh and occupied regions. As a result, the local population have evicted from their native lands. Armenians created their government over there. Delivering such information in the report of the international organization is the indicator of the objectiveness. The report says that nearly 5,000 citizens of Azerbaijan and 900 Armenians became missing people. The document also reflected questions dissatisfying Azerbaijan. We had three protests for these questions, and each of them was accepted, Mirzazade said.
The meeting was also attended by the Armenian MP, but he did not participate in the discussions.
Mirzazade added that the report of Platvoet will be discussed by the Ad Hoc Committee Migrants and Refugees in January. If the report is adopted in January, it will be presented to the summer or fall session of the PACE, he said.
Mirzazade will return to Azerbaijan on December 13.
