This brotherhood stems from history, culture and shared heritage. But our perspective on the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan is not just based on brotherhood and friendship. Our approach to this... 24/06/2021 | 10:50:47 Dear Mr President, Dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank and also congratulate the rapporteur, Mr Paulo PISCO, for the wonderful report concerning the diasporas.
