16/04/2024 | 15:02:46 Thank you very much for this question. I think I partially answered it through another question, and I can only reiterate that I issued on several occasions the warning or concern about what is going on, and I just said what my clear position is. However, we cannot, by the nature of the original organisation, we have very clearly the remit in which we work, apart from being vocal on some issues, which I think I was very clear on what my position is. We cannot engage in negotiations or other... 16/04/2024 | 14:55:51 Thank you very much. Absolutely one of those, as I call them, emerging priorities, which have already existed, if we recall, also this Parliamentary Assembly calling for more action.

But as you asked, I'll try to answer briefly. You mentioned one of the challenges of the last almost five years. Before Russia's terrible aggression against our member state Ukraine, there was the pandemic that nobody expected. Nobody could have believed that... 16/04/2024 | 14:36:23 Thank you very much for this important question. As you may know, here at the Council of Europe we have several instruments that deal with the history teaching or with how to deal with the past, which for Europe was very painful one. The Committee of Ministers have recently put forward the Recommendation on Rights, Services and Support for Victims of Crime. This is in view of taking into consideration the Council of Europe's standards and other international standards and upholding shared...
