Senator André Reichardt, President of the France–Caucasus Friendship Group made the remarks at today’s meeting organized by the Press Council, APA reports.

He said that he had a dispute with PACE President Anne Brasseur in this regard: “We have just elected her. She began to criticize Azerbaijan in her first reports on human rights. I protested it and asked her why she is only targeting Azerbaijan. Unfortunately, he didn’t give me a clear answer. She said that she is referring to previous reports.”

The Senator said that despite Azerbaijan’s being a small country, it was able to brilliantly organize the opening ceremony for the European Games. “I am ready to support the development of relations between France and Azerbaijan.”
