Noting that he is aware of the recent protest in Baku, Fraser added that he discussed the issue on human rights at the meeting with the country’s leadership. According to him, this is not the only topic of discussion with Azerbaijan: “We also spoke about the forthcoming elections during the meetings in Baku. According to the UK government, the elections should be held transparently, freedom of speech must be respected and people should use their right to peaceful protest.
