The meeting of the OSCE on “Human Rights and National Security of Countries” took place in Vienna, Austria today. Representatives of OSCE participating States, OSCE institutions, and OSCE executive structures, representatives of inter-governmental organizations, legal professionals, representatives of civil society and researchers from 57 participating States took part in discussions.

Taking an active part in discussions, Head of Azerbaijan Institute for Democracy and Human Rights Dr. Ahmad Shahidov spoke about the human rights and freedoms, touched upon issues related to freedom of expression, press freedom and internet network. Human rights and fundamental freedoms are unacceptable to limit the national security of the countries, said Human rights defender. He focused on recent events in the world and suggested a joint roadmap: “Human rights and freedoms are sacred values, and OSCE participating States must work to preserve these values. But the national security, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the member states can not be broken. I think that these values should be maintained in parallel and, peace and prosperity in the OSCE region should be at the forefront.”
