Euronews restores first Nagorno-Karabakh documentary that led to the second.

Posted: 18 Feb 2010

"The Parliament of Azerbaijan can again begin discussions related to the Euronews TV channel. 'Returning the biased and one-sided reportage regarding the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict to the website of the Euronews TV channel makes regret, and this issue may again be brought up for discussion at the next meeting of the Parliament,' deputy chairman of the committee on defence and security of the Parliament, MP Aydin Mirzazade told Trend News on Feb. 17. Euronews TV channel again posted the reportage titled 'Nagorno-Karabakh - wind of change' on its website. On Nov. 28, Euronews has broadcasted a reportage by Michael Raikhman 'Nagorno-Karabakh - wind of change', which is very biased and one-sidedly interpreted events in the Karabakh war. After Azerbaijan's protest, the reportage was removed from the side. ... According to Mirzazade, Euronews TV channel conducts a double policy. 'On the one hand, this channel shows the fair position of Azerbaijan, on the other - at the European level, presents false and slanderous claims of Armenians,' he said." Trend News Agency (Baku), 17 February 2010.
     "Euronews video 'Winds of change in Nagorno-Karabakh' posted on agency's website last November and removed on demand of Azerbaijani side is restored. The video captured by Euronews journalists who visited Nagorno-Karabakh reflected true essence of Karabakh conflict while NKR was presented as an independent republic. After the item was placed on Euronews website, Azerbaijani side as expected threw a fit. Country’s Foreign Ministry even filed a note of protest to Euronews. Channel’s management had to remove the video and shoot another film 'Forgotten victims of frozen conflict' about Azerbaijani refugees. However, 'Winds of change in Nagorno-Karabakh' was restored on the website right after a new film appeared." (Yerevan), 17 February 2010.
     Both documentaries are available at the Euronews Nagorno-Karabakh page. See previous post about same subject.
