Political Affairs Committee of PACE calls for “the withdrawal of Armenian armed forces from Nagorno-Karabakh and the other occupied territories of Azerbaijan” reports MP Suleymanov
What follows is a recent, firsthand account of momentous developments at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, which we are pleased to present as they unfolded.
In its hamfisted policy, Europe is making a darker future, even while Baku tries to create a brighter one.
The migrants Latvia wants to stop are Russian migrants, with or without main battle tanks and artillery.

The resolution of the ongoing Armenian war crime in Nagorno-Karabakh and its surrounding territories remains Azerbaijan’s most obvious need.
The danger of a Greek exit is that it reveals the fissures long hidden by a great deal of happy talk about a joint European future.

It is time to send a message to Armenia: That the ills of today must be cured long before any talk of the past can be addressed.
