ARMENIAN RED CROSS AND AZERBAIJAN RED CRESCENT MEET IN YEREVAN

The countries of the southern Caucasus share a common decade-long situation, and the first problem among many is the military conflicts and mass population movements. And while the conflicts are yet unresolved and politicians of Azerbaijan and Armenia continue disputing over the solution of the conflict, the International Federation proved once again that it knows no borders and remains faithful of its fundamental principles of impartiality and neutrality.

Yerevan, the Capital of Armenia, hosted the regional meeting of the Information Department Staff of the Armenian Red Cross, the Azerbaijan Red Crescent and of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Delegations in Armenia, Azrbaijan and Georgia on September 3-6, 2001.

The representatives of the National Societies of Armenia and Azerbaijan spoke about their work, shared their experience in professional publicity and reporting work, as well as in creating attractive publications and video documentaries. "Information and reporting is necessary for the transparency of the Red Cross and Red Crescent. It gives a possibility to those who support us to see that the funds are used in a proper way", said Choe Chung Hun, the Head of the Federation's Delegation in Armenia in his opening speech.

The information staff also discussed the possibilities of the regional publicity and information activities and planned to resume the publication of the regional newsletter to have a possibility of telling about the work of the Red Cross/Red Crescent in the three countries of the Southern Caucasus.

The meeting was organized within the Regional Cooperation Programme funded by the International Federation through its Capacity Building Fund aiming at expanding and enhancing each of the southern Caucasus National Societies' abilities to serve the most vulnerable by sharing the experiences, procedures, skills and techniques. The three Red Cross / Red Crescent Societies have already established cooperation within spheres such as Public Health, First Aid, Community Development and Disaster Preparedness.
