There is no necessity to intervene in internal affairs of diaspora organizations because they themselves can afford their problems, Nazim Ibrahimov, the chairman of the State Committee for Work with Azerbaijanis Living Abroad (SCWALA), told Trend.
He noted that 500 thousand Azerbaijanis live in Ukraine and part of them comes together in Congress of Ukrainian Azerbaijanis (CUA). According to Ibrahimov, the misunderstanding in resolving problems in the unions bringing together a great number of people is a quite normal process. Maybe, a group of people is dissatisfied with the head or the activity of the congress. Dissatisfaction of several people out of 500 thousand people is inevitable. I consider that such dissatisfactions are the internal affair of organizations themselves and they themselves settle these problems. There is no need to intervene. At times, diaspora organizations avoid such problems. Azerbaijanis who are represented in CUA are Azerbaijanis living jointly. It is sensible that that they themselves resolve their problems, Ibrahimov told.
He noted that the State Committee doesnt support one part in CUA. The State committee has always supported all Azerbaijanis living abroad and functioning in diaspora organizations , irrespective of their positions. All active representatives of diaspora in Ukraine have relations and cooperate with SCWALA. However, we dont intervene in their internal affairs. We try that such problems are resolved behind close doors. And we should try that our enemies cannot make use of such situation against us, Ibrahimov emphasized.
Ibrahimov added that a meeting of CUA will be held in September where this situation will be made clear. During election of new head of CUA, several dissatisfied members held their own meeting under protest sign and elected their chairman.
