27/06/2024 | 19:11:58 Thank you, Mister Chair. I will continue in Greek, and I will continue from the point that my colleague Ms Thórhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR and her speech. Imagine for a minute that you have been a Palestinian living in Gaza. Imagine if what is happening in Gaza happened in your country. Your country is under occupation, a terrorist organisation violating international law, committing crimes of war, attacks the occupier, and then coming here and justifying, by blaming this terrorist organisation... 27/06/2024 | 15:57:37 Thank you, Mister President.

I wish to congratulate the rapporteur of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, Lord Richard KEEN for this important and innovative report, which keeps practical significance to the obligation taken up in Reykjavík last year, to give our Assembly and this organisation a... 18/04/2024 | 18:54:57 Yes. If you can give me a bit more time, I would be grateful, because I've just stopped speaking for a few seconds.   These events occurred, and they speak for themselves. What I'd like to point out, is that I'm very dismayed by the Council of Europe's lack of action. All we've done up to now is to vote on a resolution which didn't call for an unconditional permanent ceasefire. It simply called on Israel to continue what it was doing in Gaza. In other words, to carry out a genocide until the...
