ArmInfo. The Armenian Community of Malta expresses its outrage and
disappointment with the Euronews reporting called ‘Forgotten Victims
of Frozen Conflict’ dated February 1, 2010. The editorial staff of the
TV channel, under an apparent pressure of the Azerbaijani party,
allowed notable inconsistency with the main concept of the first
‘peaceful’ reporting about the NKR of November 28, 2009. Uncovered
"militaristic" calls and horrification by war in unison of the policy
of this country’s lifelong President Ilham Aliyev can be heard in the
new reporting shooted after the ‘world hysteria’ of the political
establishment of Azerbaijan.

"We consider that it is incorrect to give such a free and one-sided
interpretation to UN resolutions on Nagorny Karabakh conflict, as well
as to approve and broadcast calls for war that were heard in the
reporting. We truly hope that one of the most respectable and tolerant
channels of Europe as Euronews is henceforth will be more delicate and
tactful in broadcasting of such reportings, especially taking into
consideration that there are the Armenian – Azerbaijan negotiations as
a background. We are very hopeful that the changes in the membership
of the shareholders of the Euronews channel do not have any influence
on its work and not in any way impact the neutrality that a television
channel should possess".

To recall, the Public TV of Turkey, TRT, joined the shareholder’s
structure of Euronews and the supervisory board even in February,
2009, and acquired 15.7% shares, having become the 4th owner of the
channel, by importance and influence, after France Televisions
(25.37%), RAI Italian Company (22.84%) and Russia RTR (16.94%).
