Actually I understand Mr Samad SEYIDOV, why he's angry that we are having speeches. Our main concern is about our neighboring country. We need stable, predictable neighbor, democratic neighbor, which is, by the way, a member of the Council of Europe.... 29/01/2020 | 17:05:55 Thank you.

But I'm wondering if the Azerbaijani delegates here are speaking about terrorism and speaking about Armenia in a situation when we were debating here. And while we were debating here today, an Armenian soldier was attacked and wounded in Armenia in the Tavush region — not in Nagorno-Karabakh, in the Tavush region of Arm... 02/10/2019 | 10:28:04 Thank you, Mr Chairman. Dear colleagues, Ladies and gentlemen, First of all, on behalf of the ALDE group, let me thank the rapporteur Lord Richard BALFE for his valuable work and emphasise some important aspects. As a former human rights advocate, I must underline the importance of such mechanisms directed towards the empowerment and protection of ombudsmen institutions. In a true democracy, it is critical that governments can be properly held accountable for their actions. But whom should a per...
