Co-founder of the NGO Coalition Environment First Parvana Valiyeva spoke at the high-level week of the General Assembly dedicated to Universal Health Coverage, Pandemic Preparation and Response and Tuberculosis, held within the framework of the 78th session of the UN General Assembly.
According to Report's American Bureau, in her speech Valiyeva touched upon the environmental terror committed by Armenia in the occupied Azerbaijani territories for almost 30 years.
The Azerbaijani activist stated that the mining activities illegally carried out by Armenia in the region for many years and not meeting any environmental norms and standards threaten the health and ecosystem of the region's residents.
She informed representatives of UN member states about the activities of the represented organization and said that the organization is currently making efforts in the South Caucasus region to suppress activities in the mining industry of Armenia that violate environmental norms and standards.
“Freshwater pollution poses a serious threat to human health and water safety, which can lead to the spread of infectious diseases. We condemn all attempts that harm human health and our ecosystem, putting our health at risk," Valiyeva said.
