The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) started on Monday its winter plenary session which will run from January 25 to January 28. 

As reported earlier, one of the issues submitted for current affairs debate concerned the repatriation of Armenian PoWs held in Azerbaijani captivity. 

However, the issue, titled “Unjustifiable delay in repatriation of the Armenian prisoners of war and other captives by Azerbaijani authorities as violation of the European International Human Rights Standards,” was not approved by the Bureau to be included in the agenda of the session.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
