On 18 January 2012 the Azerbaijan – Turkey Inter-Parliamentary Friendship Group headed by Mr. Necdet Unuvar held a meeting in the TURKPA Secretariat.

Greeting guests, Mr. Ramil Hasanov, the TURKPA Secretary General gave detailed information on the Assembly and its activities.

Expressing his gratitude, Mr. Necdet Unuvar noted that TURKPA is the significant international organization in the field of inter-parliamentary relations.

After group members discussed the draft law on so-called Armenian genocide, which was passed by the National Assembly ot the Republic of France. They emphasized that adoption by the French parliament of such law on criminalizing denial of Armenian genocide would violate the norms of international law and human rights contradicting to principles of the freedom of expression and opinion.

In this regard they stressed the necessity to support and prepare a statement by TURKPA which will serve to the common aims in this matter.
