Azerbaijan, Baku, April 4 / Trend M. Aliyev /
The second session of the Euronest Parliamentary Assembly has been held outside the European Union for the first time and brought together representatives of participating nations which "shows the international community's interest in dynamically developing Azerbaijan," Euronest co-chairman Kristian Vigenin said at a news conference in Baku following the session.
He stressed that issues raised by Azerbaijan in international events and decisions taken meet Europe's interest. Vigenin said that four decisions and one resolution had been made within the Baku session. He also stressed that despite the presence of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, good conditions have been created in Baku for the Armenian delegation. "This shows a real European attitude," he said.
Euronest PA co-chairman Boris Tarasuk stressed that as opposed to the first session in Strasbourg, a number of important decisions that will contribute to the fruitful work of the organisation have been made at the Baku session.
"Euronest PA in Baku and its results have shown that Azerbaijan's role in the international community is growing," he said.

Documents prepared by committees, together with supplements and amendments to be adopted as resolutions were discussed.
