Baku. Elnur Mammadli-APA. “Bill on alternative service has not been approved yet, because Azerbaijan is at war”, Safa Mirzayev, Head of MM Office told journalists, APA reports.
Mirzayev noted that some thought that approval of bill would decrease defense potential of Azerbaijan.
“I do not think so. The alternative service does not mean that people deviate from military service”, he said. To him, Azerbaijan has undertaken commitments to the Council of Europe to implement alternative service and the decision will be realized.
“Settlement of Nagorno Karabakh conflict is on the agenda at present. Nobody excludes that military version can be included into agenda”, he said.
