Strasbourg, June 22, AZERTAC
Samad Seyidov, head of the Azerbaijani delegation to PACE, has criticized the organization`s position on Turkey. He made remarks during debates on the functioning of democratic institutions in Turkey. “Turkey is doing its utmost in this situation. Turkey has spent 10 billion US dollars on Syrian refugees,” he said.
The head of the Azerbaijani delegation said none of the European countries were facing such a difficult situation as terrorist attacks hit Turkish cities and regions. “Today we should assist Turkey, and not impose sanctions on it. Turkey’s struggle against terrorism isn’t for itself only, it is for Europe as well,” Seyidov added.
