26/01/2021 | 18:52:21 Mr President, Dear Colleagues, The subject of our discussion today is very topical. In fact, one of our member countries has been in constant violation of this statutory right from the first day of its admission. That member country is Azerbaijan. 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... 30/01/2020 | 17:21:55 Mr. Speaker, Dear colleagues, The subject of our discussion today is very topical, but I do not know if we can seek and find an effective solution.

As all member states of the Council of Europe are parties to the United Nations... 29/01/2020 | 19:25:11 Dear colleagues, First of all, I find this report by Mr KOX very positive. We must not limit the mandate and the rights of the Russian delegation. I understand the various aspects of our colleague's presentation. But again, I want to stress that the Russian delegation must be here. I am not against discussing various issues, but I believe that the agenda of the Assembly should not repeat itself and present artificially created content from scratch. With regard to our discussion concerning the... 27/01/2020 | 15:44:57 Thank you, Mr President, First of all, I would like to offer my congratulations to the new President of our Assembly. Secondly, I would like to say that Mr SEYIDOV's presentation is total disinformation. For in Azerbaijan there is no progress on xenophobia. But I think very sincerely that in today's world, problems related to security, to global warming, are apparently more important. Today, I am going to talk about global warming. The uncontrolled growth of the economy has shown that States...
