26/06/2019 | 15:53:11 Thank you Madam President. Indeed I wouldn't say this is a happy moment. It is a sad moment for the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly. If you have been following the reaction after yesterday's vote for the De SUTTER report, throughout Europe and the European Union, the outburst of anger, disappointment and depression even about what's happening with the principles and the values in this organisation. This is astonishing. I don't think we have to be consistent in that respect. I think... 11/04/2019 | 10:34:58 I congratulate the rapporteur and the Committee on Rules of Procedure, Immunities and Institutional Affairs on their excellent work. As a member of the committee, I remember long and heavy discussions and debate about the report. I generally support the recommendations and proposals in the report. Many of them are of a technical nature and are supposed to strengthen our Assembly and the way we work and operate. We may debate and question some of them, such as the limits set on the number of... 10/04/2019 | 17:41:07 The Russian Federation – that is what we hear today.

The Russian Federation is widely seen as having demonstrated no political will in the past months to obey its statutory obligations or deliver on the Parliamentary Assembly resolutions. It is... 24/01/2019 | 19:03:04 I, too, thank Mr Viorel Riceard BADEA for the report and for reminding us all that the situation over signing and ratifying the framework convention has created double standards among the members of the Council of Europe. The report deals mainly with the eight Member States that still have not joined the convention in full. It reminds us that Belgium, Greece, Iceland and Luxembourg have signed but not ratified the convention, while Andorra, France, Monaco and Turkey have neither signed nor...
