An Azerbaijani Female MP Says Discussion of Azerbaijan’s Commitments to CE During Forthcoming PACE Spring Session to Be Held Normally
Azerbaijan, Baku/ Trend , corr. I. Alizadeh/ Ganira Pashayeva, a Member of the Milli Majlis (Azerbaijan's Parliament), and Member of the Azerbaijani Parliamentary Delegation to PACE, has said today that the hearings concerning Azerbaijan's fulfilling its voluntary commitments, which are to be held during the upcoming session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, are expected to be held normally. She also added that Azerbaijan was currently among those countries, where corresponding monitorings are conducted.
"Some critical points are often noticed in a report about the countries, where such monitorings are conducted. The report connected with Azerbaijan's fulfilling its obligations to the Council of Europe (CE) includes the development occuring in our country, as well as facts regarding the country's fulfilling the corresponding obligations. Based upon all these, I can state that the hearings concerning Azerbaijan will pass normally," added the member of the delegation.
The Azerbaijani MP also said that no sanctions could be imposed on Azerbaijan, and the recently-sounded ideas connected with this issue do not correspond with the reality.
According to Ms. Pashayeva, Azerbaijan has intentions to further cooperate with the CE on the basis of conditions of mutual cooperation. "Just due to this cooperation, a lot of issues have already been solved," noticed Ms. Pashayeva.
The PACE spring session is expected to be held in Strasbourg from 16-20 April. Notably, during the session, Azerbaijan's commitments to CE will be viewed.
