And a number of different unusual events have taken place throughout the council of member states and in my country as well. And of course monitoring takes place under these very unusual circumstances of today. When we look at the... 20/11/2020 | 15:03:23 Thank you, Mister Chairman. I will try to keep my comments brief. I'm also very grateful to Mr SCHWABE for the great deal of work he put into introducing these exceptional rules of procedure for our work.
