Elkhan Suleymanov: New wave of pressure will start against our country with the restoration of the cooperation with the Euronest PA

The Euronest Parliamentary Assembly is the most unsuccessful and damaging component of the European Union’s Eastern Partnership program. Although created to open new venues of international dialogue, it has become a forum of platitudes, biased discourse and double standards. Instead of providing common solutions to the major problems of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries (Azerbaijan, Belarus, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) with the help of the EU, the Euronest assembly is mired in endless irrelevant discussions, with no end-results or implementation powers.

Furthermore, the double-standard approach of the European Parliament (EP) towards the EaP countries serves only to deteriorate further the relevance of Euronest. Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) show double standards in their declarations, resolutions and reports towards most of the countries in the Assembly. In particular, despite declaring within the Euronest context that they are open to fair and equal cooperation, despite numerous messages, letters and signs of friendship from the members of the Azerbaijani delegation to Euronest, the Parliament routinely passes documents denigrating the situation in Azerbaijan, full of grave and unfounded accusations.
