30/01/2020 | 11:56:25 Just now I understood why our Council of Europe is in trouble. We are not able to understand what does it mean, cooperation and mutual dialogue. First of all I want to answer to my friend with whom we have very good relationship, Mr Aleksander POCIEJ. Yes dear friends, during the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights we demonstrated, and as an Azerbaijani, a constructive approach. Some paragraphs within this report mentioned the developments and progress in Azerbaijan. Of course we have pr... 29/01/2020 | 17:23:00 Mr President, thank you very much. Mr Frank SCHWABE, usually we have different attitudes to some questions.

For 70 years, countries from Europe —and not only from Europe—, because of these values, gain very visible achievements and progress. But, sometimes, we can see that these very, very important values, could be used in a very appropriative way.

I think this is not so difficult to find the definition of terrorism. Terrorism, or terrorist acts, is a cancer on the body of mankind. We are in Europe. This is a European disease and, unfortunately, it is so difficult to find t...
