16/04/2024 | 17:27:44 Thank you, Mister President. For the next couple of hours we will be touching upon a deeply complicated issue, entrenched with particularities and nuances we might have never faced before in the Parliamentary Assembly. But again, this very reason might be precisely why there could be no better place to discuss this issue than here. This year the Council of Europe celebrates 75 years of existence. For the last 75 years, the Council of Europe and its Parliamentary Assembly protected and... 12/10/2022 | 11:22:30 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, On behalf of the Group of the European People's Party allow me to thank the rapporteurs for the work and the Monitoring Committee for its meticulous observations. We must confess nonetheless that this report is alarming. It's a signal that should activate us all in this Parliamentary Assembly - but above all, and most of all, the Turkish delegation. The report validates a harsh reality. Democracy in Türkiye has been deteriorating so fast and so much... 11/10/2022 | 10:50:09 Dear colleagues, The Western Balkans produce more history than they can consume, said Churchill. Yet, that history today lacks honouring. It needs recognition as it is none other than part of our history, European history.

I want to congratulate and thank Mr Bogdan KLICH on the draft report and recommendations he presented to us today. As I told him in Chania during the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy meeting, this report will be crucial for the future of this organisation. It constitutes one of the few opportunities we have to situate the Council of Europe at the heart of the European architecture during difficult times, times of revisionism and war. I want to underline... 15/03/2022 | 11:03:01 Thank you, Chair. Dear colleagues, Today is an historic moment for our organisation. A moment of action but also of reflection. Putin's aggression against Ukraine's territorial integrity, against its democracy and its people, and 150 000 thousand Greeks in Mariupol, has no excuse, no ground for justification. It is an act that contradicts international law, contradicts international order. An act that takes Europe back 70 years. Our message is clear: there can be no place for a member State...
