Today, there are no Armenians left in Nagorno-Karabakh: 120,000 displaced persons fleeing the takeover of the territory by Azerbaijani troops; an ethnic cleansing. These people have lost their homes, their history, everything that made up their lives. 120,000 uprooted... 10/10/2023 | 19:21:08 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Ladies and gentlemen, By voluntarily joining the Council of Europe, our states have decided to submit to the scrutiny of their parliamentary peers from other states. Monitoring is an essential tool. For this to happen, the process must be transparent, based on clear data and devoid of political or diplomatic ulterior motives. I, obviously, hope that this has been the case in my country.
