I am saddened by the killing of David Gilkey and Zabihullah Tamanna. Their deaths are a frightening reminder of the dangers that journalists face around the world, especially in dangerous places like Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with their families and colleagues.
Today is a great day, but it is only one step in a long fight for press freedom in Azerbaijan. We remain committed to informing, engaging and connecting the people of Azerbaijan in support of freedom and democracy, and we look forward to celebrating more press freedom victories like today’s.
