24/01/2023 | 13:07:17 Thanks a lot for all your questions. Also for the emotions. Especially when you're directly not only affected, but your whole family, your whole friends are living in Ukraine, and you're facing death every day. I totally understand this. I also understand your question. But my discussion, first of all, peace is not only on tanks, even though this is a crucial question. This is why we are debating it intensively also in my my government. This is why we have delivered tanks: Gepard, Marder... 24/01/2023 | 13:01:52 Well, for the first part, my position has been when I was in opposition and also when I am a foreign minister that, obviously, as a European country, every European country, be it the UK or be it Germany or be it Poland, our action has to be in line with the judgments of the Court of Human Rights and this counts during the Assange case as it counts for every other case.

But because I'm in the Council of Europe – and this is not to hide away from an answer because you can just read the answer in the news, obviously – Ukraine needs more military support. But not only by one country, like mine, or the US, by all of us. We can fight this war only together. This is about our common European peace order, and this is why we are calling with regard to tanks and other... 24/01/2023 | 12:47:31 Well, on the first part of your question, I tried to outline it in my speech but I will try to do it shorter and sharper now. Well, first of all, I think it is not about a vision because it is about now, it is about these times and the worst that could happen would be to say in 20 years' time, "we should be this and this", because this is a perfect excuse for politicians to not do it today and right now. So for me the Fourth Summit is more about reality than a vision and this is why, even...
