30/09/2021 | 12:19:19 Madam Chair, dear colleagues, Let us admit it, Europe is failing in the Western Balkans. It is failing its promises, its values of openness and inclusiveness. The accession of the Western Balkans, looks today further away than at the time of the Thessaloniki Summit, actually, further away than ever despite the aspiration of the people in the area and the promises given by the European Union. Make no mistake, it was never an easy endeavour. First of all, we had the weight of the past. The... 27/09/2021 | 12:16:44 Thank you very much, Madame Chair. I'm very glad to be among you with this new fresh start of our Assembly. The political climate in the elections of Armenia have been determined by two rather uncommon factors.

Not so much on the report, but also for the content of what we should investigate in this case. My first remark, is almost obvious that, of course, territorial integrity and sovereignty are cornerstones of the international law and, therefore, the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation is against these cornerstones and cannot be accepted. However, I think that... 22/06/2021 | 17:03:47 Thank you, Mister Chair. I would like to congratulate Mr Andrej HUNKO for a very impressive report. I must say that generally our Assembly has shown good reflexes in this challenging environment of the pandemic. Already in the morning we have responded to challenges related to freedoms and civil rights in order to avoid a hygienic apartheid. As already indicated by both our rapporteurs, the situation at the social level is even more worrying. Oxfam has called the Covid-19 virus the inequality...
