We are probably in the last phase of this fight against the virus – that is called the mass vaccination phase of our fight. I'm convinced that all of us are trying to focus our activities on the most effective method... 25/01/2021 | 12:57:07 Dear Mr Rik DAEMS, congratulations for your re-election as the President of the Assembly. I would like to express my gratitude to all of you, colleagues, the new vice-President, on behalf of Hungary. The incoming presidency of the Council of Europe from May this year.
