The member of the Azerbaijan delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, MP Aydin Mirzazade, informed Trend that after Azerbaijan became the member of the Council of Europe, it carried out much work to fulfill its obligations undertaken before the Council of Europe. He said that presently Azerbaijan joined more than 200 international conventions and charters, including European Social Charter and European Charter on Human Rights.

Presently significant measures have been taken in Azerbaijan, particularly on human rights and freedom. These measures are continuing, Mirzazade said.

He said that the main report will be presented in April because the report prepared by the CE co-rapporteurs on Azerbaijan was based on the information obtained till the end of 2006. According to Mirzazade, the report will reflect the work that will be carried over the next three months. One of the actual questions will be the attitude of the Government towards conducting mass actions.

The Government of Azerbaijan positively approaches this question. Presently several places have been allocated in the capital of Azerbaijan to hold mass actions. For instance, Musavat Party was given permit to hold official action in the defined place and the action took place, Mirzazade said.
