26/01/2023 | 10:46:06 Thank you, Mister President. I would like to thank and congratulate Mr Damien COTTIER and the Secretariat for this important and excellent report about the legal and human rights aspects of this terrible war. We, as the Group of the European People's Party, would like to strengthen the importance of two points that we have heard here this morning. The need to establish a new Nuremberg tribunal to judge the terrible crimes and provide justice and hope to all the Ukrainians. Secondly, the... 12/10/2022 | 11:56:17 I would like to begin by congratulating the rapporteurs on this excellent analysis and the great work that has gone into this report. Indeed, it describes a very troubling situation in Türkiye, because there is a democratic deterioration in this country precisely when it is playing a role as a global actor, whose stability and credibility are of crucial importance for all of us. Not only is it a threat to its domestic population, but also to its neighbours, and that has to end. Türkiye must... 26/04/2022 | 11:38:17 Thank you, Mister President.

We have seen President... 15/03/2022 | 11:31:05 The future of Europe and of Europeans, in other words, of all of us, is now being played out in the fields and cities of Ukraine. This heroic resistance is also in our name, in defence of our values and freedom. They are resisting today on behalf of the respect for the rule of law, the sovereignty of nations in compliance with treaties and respect for internationally-recognised borders. I pay tribute to them. Putin wishes to disrupt the post-war international order and deliver a final blow to... 22/06/2021 | 12:28:49 Thank you, President.  The first thing I would like to do is congratulate our rapporteur for this very important report. I would also like to thank the co-rapporteur for their opinion, Ms Carmen LEYTE from the Spanish delegation, both of them have done an excellent job.  It is quite true to say that this is a subject that keeps cropping up again and again this year, that is to say this confrontation between health protection and fundamental freedoms. COVID-19, the pandemic, has affected us...
