19/04/2021 | 19:24:37 After reading carefully the draft report and draft resolution, I have discovered important positive parts that I will appreciate. Also at the same time I am saying with regret that some aren't correct, which I will mention immediately. The positive part. It's extremely important to relaunch the attention and Europeans' political commitment concerning the protection of national minorities in a complicated Europe. Secondly, it's important to make reference to these objective European standards... 25/01/2021 | 12:53:17 Thank you very much, Mr President. Colleagues, first of all, congratulations addressed to both rapporteurs for their work, their reports and, of course, conclusions and recommendations that I entirely share from the beginning.

Political discourse based on divisive propaganda, especially when promoted during electoral campaigns, is spreading all over Europe like a Trojan horse for overcoming our social cohesion. The... 09/04/2019 | 16:50:30 The report is timely and more than necessary to clarify a number of issues deriving from a future establishment of a European Union mechanism on democracy, the rule of law and fundamental rights.
