25/01/2023 | 18:41:32 Mister President, Dear Colleagues, I would like to start by thanking our three colleagues for their reports, which underline how much the fight against violence against women remains a topical issue. The Istanbul Convention is a major step forward to the credit of the Council of Europe. It has made it possible to influence many national legislations with the aim of protecting women more against the violence of which they could be victims. I believe that this should be recalled at the... 24/01/2023 | 17:18:36 Mr President, Dear colleagues, The fourth Summit of Heads of State and Government of the member States of the Council of Europe, which we had been hoping for, will finally take place on 16 and 17 May in Reykjavik.

First of all, as a member State of the Council of Europe, Türkiye is obliged to implement the judgments of the European... 10/10/2022 | 17:03:33 Madam President, Dear colleagues, The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan is once again occupying our Assembly. The situation has deteriorated again in the month of September, with several hundred deaths following the outbreak of hostilities for which both sides accuse each other. I regret this situation in which Azerbaijan seems to me to take advantage of the situation caused by the war in Ukraine to be able to impose its views on Armenia and thus recover territories lost since 1991...
