23/01/2024 | 20:17:16 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear colleagues, The Parliamentary Assembly should by all means condemn the terrorist attack by Hamas against civilians in Israel. At the same time, we have to express our support for Israel’s right to self-defense and remind of the necessity for an independent Palestinian state, within the borders of 1967. In his excellent report, Mr. Fassino describes our common concern regarding: First, the immediate release of all the hostages arrested by... 22/01/2024 | 15:46:29 Thank you, Mister President. Congratulations on your election. I declare myself as a proud Greek deputy and I am sure that your mandate will be marked with achievements and lasting positive impact.

Our Council should play a pivotal role in order to give a new impetus to the EU enlargement process. At the same time, we have to urge all the Western Balkan states to accelerate the necessary reforms. As a Greek, I am proud of the... 23/06/2021 | 13:08:15 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear colleagues, We are very proud of the Istanbul Convention. It is the world’s leading women’s rights treaty. There can be no real equality between men and women, if women experience violence and states turn a blind eye. The harmonization of legal standards can ensure the same level of protection everywhere. Unfortunately, the Istanbul Convention is increasingly politicized. Some say it goes against traditional family values. Some others...
