Azerbaijan decides to cease its engagement with and presence at PACE until further notice

“The PACE is being used as a platform to target some member states. Core principles of the PACE are exploited by certain biased groups to advance their narrow interests,” the parliamentary delegation of Azerbaijan to the PACE said in a statement.
“Political corruption, discrimination, ethnic and religious hatred, double standards, arrogance, chauvinism have become prevailing practice in the PACE.”
