No one in Europe wants Azerbaijan to leave Council of Europe - Novruz Mammadov

No one in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) or Europe wants Azerbaijan to leave the Council of Europe, Novruz Mammadov, assistant to Azerbaijan’s president for foreign policy issues, department head, said on Monday.

“Nor can the issue be raised of Azerbaijan’s withdrawal from this organization,” Mammadov said.

The presidential assistant noted that another country which has occupied part of the territory of another Council of Europe member state is also a member of this organization.

"But nobody says anything to Armenia, the invader. The issue is, Azerbaijan may or may not wish to stay in the Council of Europe. The decision rests with Azerbaijan. Our country is patient. Azerbaijan can take every step in its own interests at any time when the necessity arises," he said.

Azerbaijan wants international organizations which it is a member of to be fair, Mammadov stressed.
