OSCE Chairperson is already in Azerbaijan: he has started meetings there
“The law on defamation is necessary in Azerbaijan, as this law was adopted in the other countries of South Caucasus,” said OSCE Chairman-in-Office Eamon Gilmore at the meeting with vice-speaker of the Azerbaijani parliament Bahar Muradova. Azerbaijani media informs about this.
According to the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, Azerbaijan is still only country in South Caucasus, which hasn’t adopted the above-mentioned law: “That’s why I consider that, the adoption of this law is necessary in Azerbaijan and its realization must be accelerated.”
Muradova said that the work is being carried out in Azerbaijan on adoption of this law.

Gilmore met Armenian leadership and Nagorno-Karabakh issue settlement was the main topic of the discussions. In Azerbaijan he is scheduled to meet high-level officials as well and again NK issue settlement will be on agenda.
