14/10/2022 | 13:21:00 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear colleagues, There have been lots of accusations and finger pointing from Arm and Az delegations, so I don’t want to make loud statements, I want to give you couple of facts. It has been almost 2 years since the end of war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. There are ups and downs in the negotiations process and recently we heard some encouraging news from the European summit in Prague where both Armenia and Azerbaijan participated and... 13/10/2022 | 18:10:16 Dear colleagues, I will start my speech on a positive note.

It deprived us of many chances during the three decades it continued, but now it's a new era. After the occupation of Karabakh and East Zangezur regions of Azerbaijan, with the departure of Armenian occupational forces we have a new situation, new chances and new risks. Due to the... 24/06/2022 | 10:33:17 Dear colleagues, Vaccines played a pivotal role in improving public health. They saved lives and protected societies. Vaccines are the achievement of scientific methods, work and sacrifice of scientists and health practitioners. They are part of society's public health mechanism. They have already been some anti-vaccine sentiments on the road but traditionally it was a marginal voice, a small portion of society. The level of vaccine hesitancy in the case of Covid-19 vaccinations is extremely...
