26/01/2023 | 19:51:12 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, In November 2020, Azerbaijan solved the most complicated problem in its contemporary history. The lands of Azerbaijan occupied for almost 30 years by Armenia –through the aid of its patronising forces– were liberated. The opposite side which was populist on the battlefield against Azerbaijan is now trying to create a fast impression in the world community through various speculative tricks. One of such methods of political speculation is the hype... 25/01/2023 | 10:38:27 Dear colleagues, Unfortunately, this is not the first time this topic has been debated, and what is doubly unfortunate is that the possibility of continuing such discussions in the future is obvious. The reason is that big and small conflicts continue uninterruptedly on our continent and throughout the world, as well as wars and armed confrontations, in addition to all their other impacts, also cause long-healing, and in some cases irreparable wounds to the environment. These problems are... 23/01/2023 | 17:39:16 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I would like to share some of my thoughts on the example of a letter that I received from the chairmanship of the Council of Europe at the end of last year.

They tried to prepare a balanced text attempting to highlight the positive aspects of Türkiye's activities as much as possible. However, the main point is the attitude towards Türkiye in the Council of Europe as a whole. In the last 3 years merely, reports on this country have been scheduled three times as part of urgent debates in the Parliamentary... 11/10/2022 | 19:06:26 Thank you Chair. Dear colleagues. Each type of phobia is a disease in itself and is undesirable. However, phobias against entire nations, races and religions are already a social and very dangerous disease. The targets of racism – these ploys [which are] designed to create deep conflict in society – are appallingly broad. If there are approximately 1.72 billion Muslims in the world and they live in over 120 countries, then these numbers already clearly display the magnitude of the scale...
