The representatives of Azeri youth raised Nagorno-Karabakh issue
at All-Russian youth camp, Trend reports quoting Elnur Mamedov,
co-founder of "Ireli" youth movement, who is taking part in the event.
During the event that takes place July 20 to 26, 2006 in Tver Region,
representatives of "Ireli" movement reportedly met with head of Russia’
largest youth movement "Nashi"
Besides, said Mamedov, they met with deputy Minister of Defense of
Russia and governors of regions of Tver and Krasnoyarsk, who also
took part in the event. At the meeting, he said, issues concerning
Azerbaijan were discussed. "The min issue we were concerned in was
the certain problems our compatriots face in Russia. Governors said
there is no reason for concern", said Mamedov.
Mamedov said it was not allowed to raise any nationalism-related
issues in the camp. "We wanted to lead a round table on
Nagorno-Karabakh. Despite their refusal, we told the camp participants
of this problem as much as possible. Since most participants knew
about Nagorno-Karabakh only from Armenian sources, we revealed the
truth", said Mamedov.
