Last speeches

30/01/2020 | 12:15:43 Thank you, Mr Chair. It seems like this discussion is based on hypocrisy. Today in the role of judges there are occupant Armenians who can deal with neither the power sharing in their country nor with the corruption. Enough hypocrisy, dear colleagues. Probably for the first time during my work in PACE, I fully disagree with the position of the rapporteur. Madam rapporteur, addressing Azerbaijan you've chosen absolutely wrong language. If we speak about respect let me remind you that the... 29/01/2020 | 11:20:46 Mister President, Ladies and gentlemen, Religion gives billions of people in our planet hope and brings peace to their souls.

But one of the issues damaging the image and the spirit of this organisation is hate speech being voiced in this Assembly and beyond. Unfortunately, still remaining unresolved, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is one of the aspects of those hate speeches, in some hands becoming... 04/10/2019 | 10:34:18 Thank you, Mr Chairman, Ladies and gentleman To preserve cultural heritage means to respect it, first of all. Jewish heritage is one of the most valuable and most preserved ones in my country Azerbaijan. The history of Jews in Azerbaijan is about 2 000 years old. Today, the Jewish community is one of the most active and influential religious communities in my country. A number of joint organisations were founded for the purpose of preservation of Jewish heritage in Azerbaijan. In particular...
