Last speeches

25/01/2021 | 18:22:30 Thank you, Madam President. I would like to react to a decision of the Bureau of the PACE not to hold the current affairs debate about Armenian prisoners of war in Azerbaijan. So I think we have a lot of important issues to debate here but this issue is a very important one that was ignored by the Bureau and after that the Chairman of the Azerbaijani delegation is here talking about confidence-building, you're talking about peace, but how can we talk about confidence-building when Azerbaijan... 30/01/2020 | 12:12:38 Now.

Article 10 of the Convention, which guarantees human right to freedom of expression and opinion as well as disseminating information and ideas without any restriction is the foundation of... 02/10/2019 | 18:30:16 Thank you, Mr Chairman. As we all heard, I have to answer our Azerbaijani colleagues. Actually, I have a speech which is pan-European, which is about the fight against terrorism. 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...
