24/01/2024 | 18:20:12 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Dear colleagues, The Monitoring Committee fully supports the report by Mr Mogens JENSEN and the written amendment proposed by Mr Davor Ivo STIER, Mr Frank SCHWABE, Mr Emanuelis ZINGERIS, Mr Iulian BULAI and Mr Damien COTTIER. In recent months, the Committee has examined the situation in Azerbaijan on a number of occasions, including the most recent visits by the co-rapporteurs. In December, in Rome, our Committee adopted its new report on Azerbaijan's compliance... 11/10/2023 | 16:28:09 Thank you, Mr Chairman. Ladies and Gentlemen, I strongly condemn the terrorist attack carried out by Hamas on the territory of Israel, and I would first of all like to express my solidarity and support for the Israeli people. The news that reaches us tells of atrocious acts of violence and barbaric crimes that appal us all.

Mr Vladimir Putin clearly wants to keep the states surrounding his country under Russian domination. When he is not waging open war, he is trying to weaken the regimes in place in these republics in order to install a government that is favourable to him. This is the case in the Republic of Moldova, as well as in Georgia, as I was able to see when I visited there... 27/04/2023 | 16:56:29 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, I thank our colleague Mr Paulo PISCO for this report which calls for a clear response against the deportations and forced transfers of children and other Ukrainian civilians to the Russian Federation or temporarily occupied Ukrainian territories.

I would like to remind you that children are particularly...
