24/01/2023 | 16:30:36 The third question concerning the Western Balkans enlargement to the European Union, and what is the role of the Council of Europe. The Council of Europe has been known since many years, while since this possibility of the Iron Curtain was down, and the possibility for former Eastern and Central European countries for whom, for obvious reasons, it was not possible to join the European Union, the Council of Europe was the first step. Actually, sometimes they called it antichambre, sometimes it... 24/01/2023 | 16:27:11 Now, for Mr Bernard FOURNIER's question: you raised two questions which, from my point of view, are not necessarily linked. One of them was the Twitter accident: I have already set out my position on that. The result that was put on the media, on Twitter, by one working group, by one NGO, is not the official position of the Council of Europe, nor is it my position. Bearing that in mind, I took measures to review just how we work when it comes to how we manage our work with social media. We... 24/01/2023 | 16:24:27 Thank you very much. So starting with the European Political Community. I have to tell you that in my, at least, last half a year of meetings with all the high-level meetings I had, either in Strasbourg or in the member States, I raised with all those who participated in the first EPC meeting, how they see that and what is their appreciation in relation to the Council of Europe. So I think the underlying message was that the EPC is an informal meeting. It has no intention to become an... 24/01/2023 | 16:15:00 Thank you very much. I think for this organisation holding the Summit is the best news that we have. And holding it with the meaning for our citizens across our 46 member states is even more important. So I think, as the rules say, the agenda pertains to the mandate of the Committee of Ministers to decide on that, but, as I mentioned, you will have your say through the report that you will discuss today and the reflection group made its proposal and a number of other documents certainly will... 24/01/2023 | 16:10:23 Well, I can say that I don't disagree with your assessment of the results of the High Level Reflection Group. I think it worked in a very expedient manner, because it was at the moment when I was tasked by the Committee of Ministers to set up the group. It was clear that it is very important and that the Committee of Ministers will partially also take a look into the result of the report of the High Level Reflection Group when deciding whether to take up the Summit or not. So they were really...
