Human rights defender Ahmad Shahidov, who demonstrated special activity in the debate, informed about the Khojaly genocide and said that the Armenian armed forces killed 613 people in one night, 1275 are still in captivity and hostage. Underlined the only solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict within the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan in accordance with international law, Ahmad Shahidov said that Azerbaijan is a multicultural country, more than 35,000 Armenians live in Azerbaijan, and the Armenian church is preserved in the centre of Baku.
