He pointed out that the Council of Europe can hold a tough position against a concrete country when it is willing.
“At previous sessions, we have witnessed a clear example of how the Assembly can hold a tough stance when it is needed for actions that are inadequate to the requirements of its statute. During the period of the previous report, we have also witnessed that the Assembly is capable of demonstrating principled position towards the implementation and continuation of sanctions against a concrete country,” noted Huseynov.
The MP said all these prove that the Council of Europe can achieve its goal when it is willing and keen on doing so.
However, surprisingly, the Council of Europe believes that it is possible to manifest such a position only in certain cases.
