Why is that some European NGOs and persons claiming to be human rights defenders keep silent about Khojaly?, Ziyafat Asgarov, First Vice Speaker of the Parliament, said in his remarks on some foreign media reports criticizing Azerbaijan, APA reported.

According to him, Azerbaijan has gone through this kind of tests and there is nothing to worry about.

Before the Eurovision contest, some foreign media outlets, NGOs, and double agents from among ourselves worked hard to overshadow that contest and damage the image of Azerbaijan. But they achieved nothing. Now they have started it again, making non-sense statements that lack moral, political and legal basis. Nevertheless, Azerbaijan’s development is apparent. We are preparing for the first European Games. Almost all sports venues and equipment are ready for use. We expect the Games to be held at a high level. Why do some foreign NGOs keep silent about the terrorist acts committed in the Azerbaijani territory and the one million refugees? There are double and triple standards. The media also needs to be alert in this regard, he said.
