Azerbaijan, Baku/ Trend , corr. I. Alizadeh/ Rafael Husseynov, a Member of the Azerbaijani Parliament of the Milli Majlis, Member of the Azerbaijani Delegation to PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of Council of Europe), has said that Azerbaijan will face no sanctions in the forthcoming PACE Spring Session.
He noted that Azerbaijan had fulfilled most of commitments taken before the Council of Europe. "I think that the forthcoming discussions will hold normally, since the commitments have been fulfilled," said Mr. Husseynov. The Azerbaijani MP also noted that as compared with the period, when Azerbaijan had just joined the Council of Europe, now, the number of those PACE delegates, who protect the interests of our country, has increased.
"During the first years, we prepared documents concerning the Nagorno-Karabakh conflicts, by including the four Resolutions of the U. N. Security Council. However, when the word "occupant" was put before the Armenian State, most delegates not only repudiated to sign corresponding documents, but also treated us abusively. But, time has passed, and as a result of the work, we could carry out, their attitude to us has changed for the better. As a result of it, some 300-400 PACE delegates signed documents that Armenian was a country-occupant, and, moreover, in 2005, the Organization passed the resolution that Armenia was really an occupant," said Mr. Husseynov.
