Hungary was, yes, among the countries who could not vote for the Athens Declaration. I would like to clarify the Hungarian position. We do support the whole spirit, the wording, but there was a drafting problem in the declaration. The Hungarian permanent representative suggested that we should add two words: "Istanbul Convention" and "relevant national measures" are welcome to fight... 27/01/2020 | 12:49:01 Mr President, first of all, allow me to congratulate you for your election, and to express my gratitude to your predecessor, Madame PASQUIER, who has really played a very important role in a difficult time of our life.

In 2000, the Assembly decided to close the full monitoring procedure and to open a post-monitoring dialogue with the Bulgarian authorities. Since then, two reports have been submitted by the Monitoring Committee on the progress achieved by Bulgaria: the first in 2010, the other in 2013. My German colleague, Mr...
