Speeches since 2019

02/10/2019 | 11:13:01 Dear Chairperson, Ladies and gentlemen, We all know that the ombudsman office plays a huge and crucial role not only in defending and guaranteeing the protection of human rights, but also in breaking stereotypes and changing the mindset within society. The Armenian ombudsman office, which has the highest status of A class for independent impartial and efficient activity, has recently come up with an important initiative in the scope of the fight against domestic violence. To combat... 30/09/2019 | 16:11:10 Thank you very much. Dear Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to bring to your attention two very important topics which are core values of the Council of Europe. First, the issue of minorities and human rights. As you might have already heard, a very well-known Talysh activist, Fahraddin Abbasov, who is in prison in Azerbaijan for his activities, announced a hunger strike a few days ago as a sign of protest against torture and psychological pressure. Talysh people are one of the... 27/06/2019 | 11:22:10 Thank you. Dear rapporteur, ladies and gentlemen. First of all I want to acknowledge the enormous work done by the rapporteur.

First of all I want to thank Mr OMTZIGT for a comprehensive report and his desire to discover the truth about this terrible tragedy. In this report, it becomes clear that there is a trace of Azerbaijan in this criminal case and it is directly connected to the ruling family and the corruption scandals they are involved in. There was a very important mention in this report, saying that the night after Galizia reported this information Mr Sadr and the... 25/06/2019 | 11:23:11 Thank you, dear colleagues. First of all, I would like to wish lots of success to Ms De SUTTER in the European Parliament and I'm sure we will feel her absence here in the PACE. And getting back to the progress report, and instead of replying to my Azerbaijani colleagues, I would like to talk about the continuation of democratic developments in Armenia, because we are sure that democracy and security are interconnected. I would like to talk about the role and the meaning of elections in... 10/04/2019 | 16:30:01 I thank the rapporteurs for the reports. I speak not only as a representative of the Armenian delegation at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe but as a young female politician who believes that women should and can speak and act for peace in a very persuasive way. Women – as mothers, sisters and wives – symbolise peace. It is no secret that there is a long-lasting conflict between Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh. That conflict has taken many lives from Armenia, Nagorno...
