The USA Embassy in Azerbaijan is thoroughly keeping track on the situation with the issuing the identity cards to the population, as the issue may cause serious problems on the day of the country’s elections to the Parliament.
The US Ambassador in Azerbaijan Reno Harnish made such a statement at the news conference on the results of his tour of the northern regions of Azerbaijan, Trend reports, citing the ANS channel.

«The problems on issuing the identity cards must be removed, which is very important for holding transparent and fair elections to the Milli Mejlis of the country”, Harnish noted, pointing out, the issue is more acute in the regions of Azerbaijan than in Baku.

The same time, the American diplomat voiced his negative attitude to the issue of using the state resources during collecting the signatures in favour of individual candidates, having underlined, such kind of actions must be cut short.  

On the last day of his tour the American President attended the Gusar region of the country and met with the local administration authorities and representatives of non-governmental organizations.
