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. However, I do harbour a number of doubts, which mean that I will have difficulty supporting these rules as set out in the report.  First of all, the circumstances we find ourselves in are indeed exceptional, and this means we must adopt exceptional working methods. More or less, we figured... 31/01/2020 | 10:54:15 Thank you. Thank you very much President. Above all, we are to say that this is a very very serious issue and it is with great concern we look at the issues.

First of all, respect for elections is absolutely necessary. And over these couple of days... 26/06/2019 | 16:37:23 Thank you Chair. I would like to say that our discussion today is a rare one for the Council of Europe. We are not just talking about the credentials of my country. What we are talking about today is the future of this organisation. Here in the discussion we are having today, despite all the differences which exist between different delegations, within delegations. Although there is disagreement, our discussion today is about the Council of Europe. This is a space in which we all exist. It...
