France, Strasbourg, Jan.23 / Trend A. Maharramli /
Christopher Strasser's report is detrimental to the European values, Vice President of PACE, head of the Azerbaijani parliamentary delegation Samad Seyidov said at the plenary session of the organization during discussion of the report of the MEP in connection with the so-called political prisoners in Azerbaijan.
"I want to tell Armenian colleagues speaking before me that instead of criticizing Azerbaijani to liberate over 65 young people who refused to participate in the Nagorno-Karabakh war, and who are in the list of the Helsinki Citizens' Assembly. I have been in the CE for already 12 years. This is the first time I see that the two reports on the same topic are submitted to the Assembly in different forms for discussion," Seyidov said.
He said Azerbaijan respects the report of the Monitoring Committee, even though it is a critic report. "I do not agree with some points in the report, but one should cooperate with the Monitoring Committee and discuss the problems. This is our duty," Seyidov said.
