13/10/2022 | 19:40:23 Thank you very much, Mister President. On behalf of the Monitoring Committee, first of all, I want to express my gratitude to these wonderful rapporteurs which the Monitoring Committee have.  The report on Romania is the last one from the first round of three periodic reviews selected by the Monitoring Committee and prepared in the new format. I would like to recall that the Committee has been tasked by the Assembly with the preparation of monitoring reports on the member States which are not... 12/10/2022 | 18:02:19 Thank you very much Mr President. On behalf of the Monitoring Committee, I thank the rapporteur for the important and challenging work in the limited time. The preparation of this periodic review report was done under challenging circumstances. Firstly, the work was initiated under difficult sanitary conditions. Then, Hungary successfully chaired the Committee of Ministers last year and was fully committed to this important task. And thirdly, later, parliamentary elections were organised on... 12/10/2022 | 12:23:13 Thank you very much, Mr President. The former President of this Parliamentary Assembly, our dear friend Mr Rik DAEMS, once during a meeting said that we in this Parliamentary Assembly should speak with the country, not about the country.

He didn't mention that before September hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Armenian military forces infiltrated into the territory of Azerbaijan and put mines inside the... 24/06/2022 | 11:56:13 Thank you, Mister President. Not so easy to speak when our colleagues from Armenia try to create such an unacceptable atmosphere for this Assembly. Actually, today we have discussed a little bit that initiative which was proposed by my fellow friend; to sit together with the Armenians and to discuss all kinds of questions that are so important and in time. And I asked you, I appeal not to our Armenian colleagues, but I appeal to the president of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of...
