The rapporteur has identified 5 crisis types and in 2020 alone, 3 of those crisis types, namely COVID-19 related health crisis, environmental crisis and armed conflict have happened in Azerbaijan. During those times of crisis, Azerbaijani people have experienced and... 24/01/2022 | 19:08:01 Thank you.

Of course, it is disappointing to hear some of my colleagues from neighbouring countries in the hemicycle putting... 21/04/2021 | 18:08:33 Dear Mr President, Thank you. I would like to thank the rapporteurs for their job and drawing our attention to this very important topic which is discrimination against persons dealing with long-term illness. Dear colleagues, no country or region in the world has been immune to the spread and destruction of the pandemic. Also Azerbaijan's internally displaced persons are particularly vulnerable to the current virus like myself and this city and constituency in the Karabakh region of...
