Belgium MP: Armenia has tense social situation
Azerbaijan, Baku, May 27 / Trend T. Hajiyev /
Azerbaijan is showing the world community that it is an open tolerant
country from the national and religious points of view. It is
impossible to say this about Armenia, the head of the
Azerbaijan-Belgium Inter-Parliamentary Friendship Group Philippe
Blanchard told media.
“There is very tense social situation in Armenia,” he said. “It is
impossible to speak about the presence of religious tolerance.”
Touching upon the relations between the Azerbaijani and Belgian
Parliaments, Blanchard said that it is planned to hold a meeting of
the friendship group in September.
“Azerbaijani MPs are well informed about Belgium, as opposed to
Belgian MPs,” he said. “We would like Belgian MPs to visit Azerbaijan
often and to closer familiarize with the development of Azerbaijan.”
