24/06/2022 | 11:33:48 Thank you, Madam Chair. It used to be said that the best way of defence is attacking somebody and unfortunately trying to keep the calm situation in this Hemicycle until now. Our Azeri colleagues are trying to attack us now. I'm obliged to answer. I would like just to say, first of all, Madam Nigar ARPADARAI, we were, we are, and we will be open for opening all kinds of communication and transportation in our region. This is the first, but ladies and gentlemen, international law is not just a... 23/06/2022 | 17:39:13 Thank you so much, Kyrgyzstan is a really special place with very good people, very hospitable.

In 1965, one year after independence, Malta became the 18th member of the Council of Europe, contributing to the achievements of our organisation. Recently, the Republic of Malta appears in the focus of the Parliamentary Assembly predominantly in the context of the assassination of anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, an assassination where there are still many... 21/06/2022 | 17:46:37 No, it was mentioned that I should sit here. In any case, for many years, we deemed that we finally enjoyed peaceful and tranquil times in Europe. We did believe that due to the Second World War's tragic experience at least our generation will be secured from any armed conflict, global catastrophes and disasters. Today, everybody is alarmed. War has returned to Europe. Nevertheless, ladies and gentlemen, peace was just an illusion. Even during the times that seemed peaceful and safe, war was...
