24/06/2021 | 11:56:43 Thank you, Mister President, I thank ministers for attending the session and addressing us. Indeed we came here to discuss the possibility of establishing a mechanism in the Council of Europe but Mr Minister talks in contrary to establishing something to protect the European Union borders. And all colleagues from EU members also repeated this here. This is a very cynical and contradictory approach. The Turkey EU statement was done and I was part of it in an emergency case, and Turkey... 24/06/2021 | 10:24:03 I really appreciate the tremendous and dedicated work by Mister rapporteur. As a country which is very experienced on diasporas, Turkey, and myself as a former consul in the diplomatic service, we try to contribute for its efficiency. Indeed dear colleagues, I will not repeat the previous speakers but I must say that Europe and the area of the Council of Europe in general would be the best place on earth for diaspora policies, diaspora practices, because of its complementary economies... 21/06/2021 | 18:30:14 With all due respect to the rapporteur Mr Boriss CILEVIČS, we found a lot of discrepancies and mistakes in this report. We thought that it would not be possible to correct them with amendments.

In this context, I have three problems in this report. I will briefly mention it: one is that my country has some particularities, differences from others, some problems, it is mainly terrorism. Unfortunately, this report does not... 20/04/2021 | 11:55:15 Thank you Mr President. I congratulate the rapporteur Mr Tiny KOX on this very principal issue for the organisation. I know it is not an easy task to cover everything. That's why I have three questions orally. Indeed, it is well known by everybody but we should remember here again. One is about accession of the EU to the Convention – it should be on equal footing and it should not distort the convention system at all. Secondly is the sustainability of the fiscal situation of the organisation...
