22/06/2021 | 17:37:57 Good morning, colleagues, Covid-19 is a serious challenge for all countries in the world. It is a disaster that has lasted for almost two years and has damaged the foundation of the world economy. It has implied serious restrictions not only for health systems, businesses but also for vulnerable groups in society, increasing inequalities. The pandemic has brought to the fore many problems that states had not previously faced. Now that most countries have lifted the most stringent restrictions... 20/04/2021 | 17:42:54 Thank you, Madam President. Dear colleagues, In the course of the large-scale war unleashed on 27 September 2020 by the Azerbaijani armed forces and Turkey against the Republic of Artsakh, the civil right to health, property, as well as other vital rights of tens and thousands of Armenians were severely violated.

According to the statute of our organisation, the aim of the Council of Europe is to achieve a greater unity between its members for the purpose of looking at each other and promoting the ideals and principles which are their heritage. What then... 26/01/2021 | 09:41:42 Mr speaker, Dear colleagues, The judgments of the European Court of Human Rights are very important for everyone but, at the same time, the world today is in a state of serious crisis. This crisis is the result not only of conflict, on the one hand, and tradition and the preservation of the national state, on the other. For me, one thing is obvious: if we do not respect our national and family values, if we do not listen to our ancestors, then we reject what gave us birth. Everyone knows that...
