Last speeches

22/04/2021 | 12:15:12 Thank you, Chair. Dear colleagues, In recent years, one of the topics of our constant debates in the Assembly has been the need for radical reforms in the Council of Europe, the importance of renewal, the urgency of getting rid of traditional shortcomings and diseases. Unfortunately, the main shortcomings that need to be corrected remain the same and we continue to move forward with the same gait. The utmost diseases to be treated — double standards, non-objectivity, ordered speeches, biased... 20/04/2021 | 17:39:33 Dear colleagues, During the first Karabakh war over 4 000 persons disappeared from Azerbaijan. They are captives and hostages. Armenia did not return any of them. During the last Karabakh war Azerbaijan returned the bodies of 1,500 soldiers to Armenia. On November 10 2020 a trilateral agreement was signed and hostilities were officially ended. According to the agreements the exchange of prisoners was carried out according to the principle "all for all". Azerbaijan handed over 44 prisoners to... 28/01/2021 | 13:32:46 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Many of you are aware of these and similar substances: acrolein, acetaldehyde, diethylamine, ethyl formate.

Dear colleagues, It is a well known truth that many NGOs operate in each of the participating countries, and the number of these organisations is constantly growing as well as their scope of activity is expanding. Many of their problems are similar regardless of the country in which they operate, but of course there are many differences depending on the country situation. Currently the number of NGOs in my country, Azerbaijan, is about 4 500. However, due to the new... 25/01/2021 | 13:20:16 Today is a historic day in many respects. Above all, this is a historic day, because after a sad break in the year, we are finally together in Strasbourg again and gathered again in this hall which is native to us. The main thing that makes this day historic for me and the Azerbaijani delegation is the event that happened here exactly 20 years ago. On 25 January 2001, the flag of Azerbaijan was added to the list of flags in front of the building of the Council of Europe, and, as equal members...
