Some people who fled Azerbaijan insult the symbols of the country, Azerbaijani President’s Assistant for Public and Political Affairs Ali Hasanov told the 7th Congress of Azerbaijani Journalists in Baku March 10, APA reports.
After leaving Azerbaijan, they are deprived of their passports and are turned against the country, he noted.
“If someone considers something unworthy for his family, it is unacceptable to offer this to society. Journalists must fight against such persons,” the presidential assistant said.

“Those who have obligations to the relevant authorities of foreign countries, are engaged in denigration of Azerbaijan,” Hasanov said.
“Even those persons' parents renounce them,” he said. “By using Facebook, those individuals are engaged in denigration of Azerbaijan. First of all, media representatives must counter them.”
He recalled that the Press Council prepared a ‘blacklist’ in connection with publications engaged in racketeering.
The presidential assistant called on those working in these publications to take the right path.
Collecting compromising material and blackmailing people is not good. Put yourself in the place of those people who you threaten. I do not fight those people, but I urge them to take the right path," Hasanov said.
He added that members of media outlets, who are included in the blacklist of the Press Council, will not be included in the list of persons to whom apartments are provided.
The 7th Congress of Azerbaijani Journalists was held in Baku on March 10.
