«No one can teach mind, teach lessons in democracy, forcibly implement their postulates and subjective opinion," stated by head of the Presidential Administration of Azerbaijan Ali Hasanov, commenting on the recent debate on violations of democracy in Azerbaijan, organized in Washington.

"Some argue that the Azerbaijani authorities want to revenge some NGOs and anti-Azerbaijani forces. This is not so, the talk is about a public reprimand," he said.
"No one can say that in Azerbaijan people are persecuted for their political orientation, for the attitude to the authorities, and on this basis they are denied grants," he said, adding that "the activities of NGOs in Azerbaijan is probably the most exemplary in the world" .
Hasanov said that the initiative of the Council of State Support to NGOs was analyzed the activities of the third sector in the Western countries and the state of human rights. Hasanov called this analysis example of objectivity, "and not an attempt to manage someone, exert pressure, change the national interest."

"We are for transparency, respect for national interests, and compliance with the law," he said.
Concerning the role of NGOs, he said that, since 2008, the NGOs implemented through the NGO Council more than 2,000 projects totaling $ 20 million manat. Today, 3,000 NGOs were regstered in the country, Hasanov said.
