29/09/2021 | 18:56:18 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Exactly one month ago, today, on August 29, I was going to Shusha, the major city of Karabakh, passing through our territories which had been occupied for almost 30 years and finally liberated by the might of Azerbaijani army. Wars have always taken place, and each war inevitably led to some kind of destruction. However, no other book on the history of war has reflected such horrifying scenes similar to the ones that I witnessed in the... 27/09/2021 | 19:41:23 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) All wars and conflicts, no matter how long they last, are finally over.

Dear colleagues, Time that is moving forward has changed dramatically the concept of diaspora and, accordingly, the diaspora policy of countries over the past 50 years. This is especially true for a number of newly independent states, primarily post-Soviet states and peoples. I am well aware of the important role of global political processes in the life of the diaspora in the example of my country Azerbaijan, as a person who has studied this problem for decades and has... 21/06/2021 | 12:43:54 Thank you, Madam President. Dear colleagues, the last two years will be a difficult test in the history of the Council of Europe, as well as in the life of the whole world. Now, when we think about the next progress report, it is a fact that the Council of Europe is successfully passing this test. It did not lose its balance, it quickly adapted to the conditions of the pandemic period and even at this historical stage gained new experience to more effectively build its activities in the...
