22/06/2021 | 19:11:32 Thank you, Chairperson. I would also like to join in congratulating Baroness Doreen MASSEY for her excellent work where she has looked at the Covid-19 pandemic and its challenges from the angle of how the children, the most vulnerable and most beloved group, are facing. A story that I want to tell you is a very simple one. On 23 March, if I'm not mistaken, the UN General Secretary called for an armistice all around the world because of the pandemic. Azerbaijan didn't quite understand the... 21/06/2021 | 18:46:38 Thank you, Madam Chair. I also want to thank the rapporteur for his work, which we have also discussed in our party. The thing with comparing Spain and Turkey is very difficult for me because, as an observer, for me, it is clear that Spain is a much more democratic country than Turkey, at this stage, at least, can ever aspire to. But a problem of the understanding is that, we say, should the politicians be held accountable for their speeches or actions? Which politicians?

On this matter, I want to take the opportunity and draw everybody's attention to what is happening or what has been happening in Azerbaijan. I want this dialogue to be constructive. What we have... 28/01/2021 | 11:00:04 Thank you Mr Chair. Thank you also for the report. When we are speaking about Article 10, our colleagues who are proposing this way of thinking are conveniently misplacing what is written in Article 10. It says clearly that the interference in sharing ideas should not come from the public authorities. This is something that we need to fix. The public authorities only have a right to license or not to license, but they cannot interfere in the communication of ideas. Now I understand it's a...
