Baku, September 10, AZERTAC
Minsk has hosted a session of the Coordinating Council of Prosecutors General of the member states of the CIS.
Azerbaijan was represented at the event by Deputy Prosecutor General, head of the Central Anti-Corruption Department under the Prosecutor General Kamran Aliyev.
In his address at the session, Aliyev pointed out that Azerbaijan joined all international and regional conventions on the fight against global and regional terrorism. He provided an insight into the role of the Office of the Azerbaijani Prosecutor General in combating terrorism, and highlighted national anti-terrorist legislation and practical mechanisms.
He drew the audience`s attention to the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict. He said 20 per cent of Azerbaijan’s territory was occupied by the Armenian military units at the end of the 20th century. “These uncontrolled territories are used for setting terrorist camps, providing asylum for wanted terrorists, holding trainings, planning and executing acts of terror,” he said.
Russian Prosecutor General Yury Chaika was elected as chair of the Council for the next three years. The next session will be held in Russia in 2017.
On the sidelines of the event Aliyev held meetings with heads of delegations from Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to discuss ways of developing cooperation.
