If the rights of the Azerbaijani delegation are not restored within one year, the country would seriously consider the total departure from the Council of Europe, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in this regard as he received the delegation led by Managing Director of the German Eastern Business Association Michael Harms on February 28, APA reports.

The head of state regretfully noted that in the German media, Azerbaijan is allegedly portrayed as a country where freedoms are not ensured, people are imprisoned for their opinions, and it is depicted as a despotic country ruled by dictatorship. Saying that “this is absolutely fake and I regret that,” President Ilham Aliyev emphasized that the authors of those articles themselves are well aware of it, adding that the German Ambassador, who has been serving in Azerbaijan for several years, is also a witness of the processes taking place in the country.

President Ilham Aliyev underlined that deliberately many negative impressions are created about Azerbaijan.

“Well, does it play any role for what we are doing here? No. We do what is right for our people, for our country, whether it's the restoration of territorial integrity or it's our economic agenda,” the head of state mentioned.
