Vice-President of the European Parliament Ryszard Czarnecki, speaking to reporters in Baku Sept.9, said that the parliament will respect the results of the upcoming referendum in Azerbaijan.
Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev earlier signed a decree to hold a referendum on making amendments to the country’s constitution on September 26, 2016.
“We are here before the important referendum in your country. We want to know more about this referendum,” Czarnecki told reporters.
“We will respect the result of this referendum. Because for us the will of your nation is the most important,” he added.
He also noted that this visit is especially important, because Italian and Polish representatives of the European Parliament delegation are in Azerbaijan for the first time.
“They have lack of experience, and for them these meetings and this trip was the first lesson of Azerbaijani culture, history and politics,” Czarnecki said, stressing the importance of closer cooperation.
