12/10/2023 | 18:02:07 Thank you, dear colleagues, I want to first thank the rapporteur for the job he did. It was a challenging job. He did a good job. Regarding the situation: back in 2001 when Azerbaijan became a member of this organisation it undertook an obligation to solve the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict peacefully, not to use force. In 2020, it waged war against Nagorno-Karabakh. Our Azerbaijani colleagues confess this openly; that they decided to use force, and they are proud of it. That's a breach of their... 22/06/2023 | 18:25:12 Thank you Mister President, dear colleagues, It's ironic that the rapporteur on ensuring free and safe access through the Lachin Corridor wasn't ensured free and safe access to the Lachin Corridor, isn't it? Indeed, this is not a coincidence. For months, the people of Nagorno Karabakh have been under a blockade. For more than a week, they have been under a complete siege, because if before there was still a possibility to send some humanitarian aid, basic food and medical equipment to Nagorno... 24/04/2023 | 15:37:53 Thank you Mr President, dear colleagues, In her speech, Ms Petra STIENEN rightly noticed the symbolism in the fact that today we have commemorated horrendous atrocities from more than a hundred years ago, around 80 years ago, and the atrocities that are happening now.

The atrocities that we can... 26/01/2023 | 19:33:19 Thank you, Mister President. First I want to thank all of the speakers who spoke before me for speaking the truth. That's very important. The people in Nagorno-Karabakh may be freezing right now because of the blockade, but your words will certainly warm their hearts, because they will know they are not alone, even though Azerbaijan wants them to think they are alone and that nobody cares. But you show that people do care. Dear colleagues, I know conflicts tend to be complicated, but... 23/01/2023 | 15:59:15 Thank you. Dear colleagues, Since Mr George KATROUGALOS and some of the other speakers mentioned the Armenia-Azerbaijan issue, I'd like to update you on that. I won't talk about Nagorno-Karabakh itself because we will have a different debate on that, a separate debate. But I will update you on the relations between Armenia and Azerbaijan.   Dear colleagues, During the last session we held a debate after Azerbaijan attacked the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia, occupied some part...
