22/06/2021 | 12:12:32 Dear colleagues, The world is fighting with COVID-19. Humanity is seeking for ways to go back to normality and vaccination is considered to be the essential way to reach this goal. My country, Azerbaijan, has responded to the crisis very quickly and is tackling it very well. Today's discussion on the COVID-19 passports is very timely and important. In my humble opinion the introduction of COVID-19 passports should pass through heavy and tough scrutiny as it is almost certain to have very... 22/06/2021 | 09:18:08 Dear colleagues, First of all, I thank the rapporteur for working on this extremely important subject. I would like to attract your attention to the issue of algorithmic transparency. Virtually any member of parliament in any country today must use social media.

Azerbaijani refugees, 1 million people, approximately 1/8th of population waited to go back to their homes for almost 3 decades. War is a very painful and dramatic process, it is a tragedy by all means. But the war in Karabakh is over now. A new situation, which... 20/04/2021 | 12:16:31 Dear Colleagues, Europe cannot be defined solely in geographical terms. It is, first of all, an idea so attractive that over centuries people and countries choose to navigate towards it, embracing European identity. Today Europe is a civilizational and cultural construct, that expanded well beyond the natural borders of European "peninsula" of the Eurasian continent over last few centuries. Today, one of the most important questions is the question of where the European border of Europe...
