Azerbaijan is very concerned about the continuation of colonialism, especially the flagrant violation of the rights of women and children in colonies, said Azerbaijan's President Ilham Aliyev as he addressed the participants of the International Conference on “Decolonization: Women's Empowerment and Development”, APA reports.

The head of state said that France continues its neocolonialism policy.

France, which currently controls 13 overseas territories as its colonies and interferes in the internal affairs of its former colonies located on different continents worldwide, continues its neocolonialism policy despite the many years of demands from international organizations and peoples fighting for independence.

"Most of the bloody crimes in the colonial history of humanity have been committed by France. France, which occupied dozens of countries in Africa, South-East Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean, and Latin America, plundered their wealth and enslaved their people for many years, committing numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity. The French armed forces discriminated against their ethnic and religious affiliation and subjected hundreds of thousands of civilians to genocide. The slave trade, which France was actively engaged in, is one of the most shameful pages of humanity. Millions of Africans fell victim to the French slavery policy", President said in this address.
