Azerbaijan implements most Council of Europe commitments: MP
Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 24 / Trend A.Huseynbala /
"Azerbaijan has implemented most of the commitments to the Council of Europe and today our country has close cooperation with this structure," Azerbaijani International and Inter-parliamentary Committee Member Gultakin Hajibeyli told Trend today.
When joining the Council of Europe in 2001, Azerbaijan began undertaking a series of commitments and the Council of Europe's Monitoring Committee controls their implementation.
According to the official, Azerbaijan has taken significant steps to bring its legislation into line with European standards.
"All the country's laws comply with international standards. Azerbaijan's way is the path of democratic development. Best practices have been applied in this way given the values of Europe," the MP said.
Commenting on the visit of the AGO Group to Azerbaijan, Hajibeyli said such visits are carried out systematically.
"Azerbaijan is under the structure's supervision, so such visits are natural. Only the law on alternative military service was not fulfilled from among the country's undertaken obligations. The adoption of this law is inexpedient from the standpoint that at present Azerbaijan is at war. The Council of Europe is aware of this," she said.
