“The European Court set 20 January as a deadline for Ali Insanov’s examination. We took examination judgment to Strasbourg. His treatment is not completed. This issue will be discussed with the Azerbaijani government in negotiations. Former Minister of Economic Development Farhad Aliyev suffers from heart failure,” she added.
