30/09/2021 | 12:46:45 Thank you, Madam President. I am a little disappointed, I have to say, by this debate which is confined to casting responsibility on other parties and not looking at what one´s own responsibility is, and what one should still do. I think that we will not get out of this. There is an interest to make progress. We all know about how destabilised the Balkans have been as we experienced wars not so long ago. If you look at the enlargement negotiations in the Balkans and what the outcome of the... 29/09/2021 | 16:28:51 Thank you, Mr President. It is a source of pride for us, the ALDE Group, to be with you today because it has taken almost two years of effort to build up this important work.

Madam President, ladies and gentlemen, Madam Secretary General, I am very pleased to be able to present this progress report of the Bureau and the Standing Committee of our Assembly for the period from 21 June to 22 September. As is customary, I shall not go into detail about all the activities that are mentioned in the report, of course. I shall concentrate on a few areas of political significance for our Organisation. I would like to start by mentioning not an... 21/06/2021 | 18:09:56 Thank you, Madam President. Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to begin by warmly thanking our colleagues Mr Boriss CILEVIČS and Mr Pere LÓPEZ for the quality, precision and balance of their work as rapporteurs on a truly sensitive subject, as we know. The Council of Europe had to be aware of the fact that the Council of Europe had a responsibility to defend the values of democracy, the rule of law and human rights. In your report, Mr CILEVIČS, you focus on two specific cases: Turkey and...
