In Azerbaijan, youth organization of the Civil Solidarity Party demands depriving of citizenship the 10 people who have visited Armenia in the framework of the Camp of Mutual Understanding project. Among them are the chairperson of the Azeri National Committee of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly Arzu Abdullayeva, human rights activists Nigyar Abdullayeva and Rena Yuzbasheva. Particularly, those people visited the Gugark children and youth camp in Armenia.

A REGNUM correspondent reports them in the Civil Solidarity youth organization to say that in the camp the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly organized a meeting of Armenian and Azeri youths, and young people from Nagorno-Karabakh were also present at the meeting.

They say that the visit was "treason" and demand that those people be deprived of citizenship and passports.

They also demand expelling from Azerbaijan the international organizations organizing such projects.

In its turn, the Azeri National Committee of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly denies the charges and says that they are aimed at casting slur upon the activities of the Assembly.
