22/06/2022 | 10:39:03 Thank you, Madam President. I would like to thank the Rabbi of the Great Synagogue of Stockholm for her message, and I would also like to thank our colleague Ms Petra BAYR for this very enlightening report on the prevention and the fight against anti-Semitism in Europe. If this work is an extension of previous resolutions of our Assembly, we cannot but be marked by the difficult context in which it is set.

Article 8 bis of the Statute of the International Criminal Court defines aggression as the use of armed force by a state against the sovereignty, territorial integrity or political independence of another state... 27/04/2022 | 10:42:00 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, I would like to start by thanking our colleague Mr Frank SCHWABE for this report on the consequences of the aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. We see these consequences immediately in Ukraine, of course, through the destruction and the migrants thrown onto the roads, who are fleeing the war and its attendant barbarities.
