20/11/2020 | 15:21:11 Thanks very much. Congratulations to Frank, he's done a tremendous amount of work. I know I am going to have to disagree with some of it. It's surprising and it's probably the first and maybe the last time it's ever happened to say that Frank has managed to unite myself and Mr Sergey KISLYAK. I am concerned about the qualification for exceptional circumstances. I think that one of the things that we need to look at is putting a sunset clause into this so that it is applicable for the pandemic... 30/01/2020 | 19:20:49 Thank you, Mr President. I'll do my best to do justice to the remarks that have been made. I'd like to take Mr Andreas NICK's point, the very first point that he made first, because this is at the heart of the Monitoring Committee and the monitoring process.

If I may abuse my position very briefly, this effectively is my swan song, as the immediate past chairman of the monitoring committee... 29/01/2020 | 19:28:35 Thank you, Mr President. I've listened to this debate with great interest. And I have to say that I find the report that is before us wholly unacceptable. It is shot through with disingenuous comments. We shall come on to amendments shortly, but it is not the case, and I've just finished two years as the chairman of the Monitoring Committee, it is not the case that the Russian Federation has been complying with the Monitoring Committee. There are no monitors. They're in the process of being... 29/01/2020 | 11:46:51 The Committee is against. The vote is open. The vote is closed. Display the result please. Amendment number 3 is carried. I had to look twice. We now come to a slightly complicated process, which is one of the reasons why we terminated the debate slightly early. I will endeavour to explain because I think I've just about grasped what we are supposed to do. We have received an oral amendment which reads as follows. In the draft resolution paragraph 9.4, after the words "religious diversity...
