26/01/2023 | 19:23:59 Thank you very much, Mister Chairman. When we were discussing the situation in Kosovo, I mentioned the old saying that the Balkans have been the powdered keg of Europe. The Caucasus risks being another area that could be explosive in the years to come for similar reasons: the existence of minorities and disputed territories. We are not discussing here, of course, the geopolitical aspects of the conflict, just the humanitarian ones. We must have in mind that in all situations, respect for... 26/01/2023 | 10:39:41 Dear Colleagues, Recently, the President of our Assembly suggested to me to read again the preamble of the Statutes of our organisation. There, I found this remarkable phrase that it is very pertinent to what we are discussing. I quote: "Peace based upon justice and international cooperation is vital for the preservation of human society and civilisation". Exactly for this reason, because peace, and justice, and international co‑operation cannot be dissociated, we remain very skeptical for... 25/01/2023 | 15:48:06 Thank you very much, Madam Chair.

Allow me to express my warm congratulations for your reelection. It's going to be difficult to have a second mandate [which is] more successful than the first one, but I would like to wish you this too. So the Bureau appointed me as Rapporteur for this report which covers the period from October practically to this day. It's going to be a very pedantic and futile exercise to refer to all that we have done at the Bureau, so I'm going to stick to the essential... 14/10/2022 | 11:17:34 Many thanks, Madam Chair, I would like to begin by congratulating the rapporteur on a very balanced and pertinent report. It was not an easy issue. The fundamental rule is established in the Oviedo Convention on Bioethics. We are the masters of our bodies. Nobody can impose to us any kind of medical act without our informed consent and vaccination is a medical act. It was not easy to find a compromise – a balanced compromise – between this rule and the necessity of protecting public health in...
