“The Azerbaijani press is flexible and solid in national issues” – Ahmad Shahidov

Today, the National Press Day is celebrated in Azerbaijan. 142 years ago, the first press release by Hasan bey Zardabi – “Ekinchi” newspaper was published and the Azerbaijani press was established.

More than a thousand media outlets have been registered in the country today. Some of them are permanently published. Azerbaijan has already joined the global information system. As in many democratic countries, the Press Council has been established and the “Law on Press” has been adopted in Azerbaijan. A special program was prepared and submitted to the President of Azerbaijan to improve the free press, to ensure economic independence, to eliminate certain deficiencies in the advertising market and improve the social situation.

Commenting on the National Press Day, the head of the Azerbaijan Institute for Democracy and Human Rights Dr. Ahmad Shahidov spoke about the human rights, political pluralism, the existence of civil society and freedom of the press in the country and talked about the activities of the independent mass media formed as a democratic institution and legal guarantees for their development: “Today, the Azerbaijani press is flexible and solid in national issues. We have witnessed it many times. During the April wars of last year, as well as the incident with two-year-old Zahra, who killed by armenian armed forces a few weeks ago, the whole world knew and saw the truth of Azerbaijan. This is the success of the Azerbaijani press. Undoubtedly, the attention and care of the Azerbaijani state, especially the President Ilham Aliyev towards the national press has a great role in achieving this success.”
