The UN Human Rights Office received information about violations in April this year of humanitarian law during the armed clashes in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone, said the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein, addressing the opening of the Human Rights Council's 32nd session in Geneva.
The UN High Commissioner urged not to forget about the problems of the internally displaced persons in the South Caucasus, as well as offered assistance in gathering objective information about the problems in the sphere of human rights in areas where clashes occur.
Welcoming the recent release of civil society representatives and journalists from prison in Azerbaijan, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein urged the Azerbaijani government to take further steps aimed at expanding the space for civil society and ensuring the freedom of expression.
The High Commissioner expressed readiness for dialogue with the Azerbaijani government to address all these issues.
