By: Nazrin Gadimova

Co-rapporteurs of the Monitoring Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) for Azerbaijan have arrived in Azerbaijan to discuss the relationships between Azerbaijan and the Council of Europe.

Azerbaijan’s Interior Minister Ramil Usubov met co-rapporteurs Pedro Agramunt and Joseph Debono Grech in the framework of their visit.

Usubov spoke of the relations between the country’s Interior Ministry and the Council of Europe, praising the results of their cooperation in ensuring the protection of human rights and freedoms.

Agramunt and Grech also met members of the Azerbaijani Parliament’s Committee on Legal Policy and State Building, and Chairman of the committee Ali Huseynli gave a brief insight into its activities.

The two sides discussed the situation in the region, violation of human rights, the Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and the work done by the Council of Europe to solve the dispute.

Members of the political parties represented in the Azerbaijani Parliament met PACE Monitoring Committee’s co-rapporteurs afterwards.

Highlighting the situation in the region, Azerbaijani MPs condemned the continuing occupation of the Azerbaijani lands by the Armenian armed forces and the violation of the rights of more than one million Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs.

They also expressed regret that the efforts of international organizations for solving the dispute have produced no results, and that no sanctions have ever been imposed on Armenia.

They also pointed to the fact that Armenia has ignored all the resolutions of the UN Security Council and other international organizations on the dispute.

Touching upon the relationships between the Council of Europe and Azerbaijan, the parliamentarians noted that Azerbaijan had made considerable contributions to the activities of the organization and have always been committed to its obligations.
