The report on situation of human rights defenders in Azerbaijan, prepared after UN rapporteurs’ visit to the country in September 2016, is one-sided, unbalanced and doesn’t meet the spirit of cooperation, said Deputy Foreign Minister Mahmud Mammad-Guliyev. He made the remarks addressing a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Switzerland. Mammad-Guliyev raised the issue of mass violation of rights by Armenia of Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs, who left their native lands as a result of the Armenian military aggression. So, he called on the United Nations Human Rights Council and United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to multiply efforts for restoration of rights of Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs.
The Foreign Minister expressed disappointment over the United Nations Security Council’s resolution n.2342. The resolution ignores the daily aggression war in Yemen and is just focalized on the political transition in the country. The official affirmed that any solution to the aggression war should be integrated and comprehensive with the security and sovereignty of Yemen without derogation and that is not acceptable that the UNSC made no mention to the aggression military escalation in the Yemeni coasts and cities and the target of Yemeni civilians.
