Head of the Azerbaijani delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE)Samad Seyidov has expressed confidence that the Council of Europe will change.
"In 2001 we did not come to this organization for its office in Strasbourg. We came for the rule of law, democracy, universal values and human rights,” Seyidov said.
He noted that today the organization uses universal values as an instrument, as a form of exerting pressure on countries.
"Therefore, nobody will accept such a Council of Europe. This will change soon. Therefore, we will never leave the Council of Europe. The Azerbaijani flag was raised in this organization by national leader Heydar Aliyev,” Seyidov added.
