23/01/2024 | 17:58:22 Thank you very much, Madam President. I would like to underline, dear colleagues, that we are here because of the Hamas terrorist attack on 7 October against Israel. Yesterday, in the Committee we discussed the word "barbarism". There was an amendment which suggested that "barbarism" should be deleted. And the answer from the Committee was, "No, we don't delete it because it was barbarism". I would say the most barbaric terror attack in recent modern history was what happened on 7 October in... 22/01/2024 | 16:03:44 Thank you. Dear colleagues, First of all about the Serbian elections. I would like to agree with our rapporteur, who said that there have been irregularities in the elections, but these irregularities have been so-called "normal" irregularities. I think it is important to all of us to mediate the message to our Serbian colleagues that we regard the elections as legitimate elections. As far as the party political interpretations are concerned, I hope that we stop questioning elections just... 11/10/2023 | 16:00:09 Mister President, honourable Members, On Saturday morning, we woke up to terrible news and horrible images of violence flaring up in the Middle East, again. Comparable to the acts of Daesh, Hamas' war of terror has spared no one. Families, women, and children were shot dead in the open street in broad daylight, and almost 300 people were massacred at a youth party. Israel was attacked from the air and the sea, and on land as well. Hamas' terrorism has shown once again that it knows no borders... 09/10/2023 | 16:24:59 Mister President, dear colleagues, Reality has again intervened in the programme of the Parliamentary Assembly autumn session. Israel is bleeding incomparably since 1973, the Yom Kippur War 50 years ago exactly: it is not an accident. This was a planned and very barbarically executed operation. We need to condemn the Hamas terrorism in the most explicit way. There is no justification of this brutality which we are experiencing. How about the peace process, dear colleagues. The Abraham Accords... 24/04/2023 | 15:30:47 Mister President, our Secretary Generals, Dear Mister Aleksander POCIEJ, Today we are all Warschauwers/Varsovians. I would like to mention three questions very briefly: the 4th Summit, the register, and Kosovo. The 4th Summit is approaching in three weeks. Our main aim is the renewal of the Council of Europe. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) has been the engine behind this process. Congratulations to everybody who played a role in that. We must remain the engine in...
