12/10/2022 | 11:45:11 Mr Chairman, Many countries in this Parliamentary Assembly will testify to at least having uneven relations with Türkiye. Some of them have had the hope that, as a result of the EU accession process, Türkiye would begin to live by the European rules of the game, but that perspective has probably vanished by now. Türkiye has itself rejected this path in order to have its own ambitions of becoming the leader of the Muslim world and of the wider region, achieved without any external obligations... 10/10/2022 | 13:03:09 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   In the context of the continuous aggression of Azerbaijan against Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh I would like to raise the following questions: Our organisation had preferred to limit itself by vague and unaddressed statements which would put signs of equality between and among the parties to this conflict.

But we also failed to address more fundamental aspects of democratic peace. That is the protection of the right to life and the right of people's self-determination. It seems to me, we have began to treat human destiny rather selectively and very often in the context of geopolitics. Some debates in this... 28/04/2022 | 16:20:47 Mister Chairman, There are two issues mentioned in the documents under discussion that I am going to highlight. First, I would like to refer to the statement that I quote "democracy is not the dictatorship of the majority". Unfortunately, this is the path that in the past years a number of governments in our member States have chosen. This way often results in the consolidation of power by one political force and, thereby, exaggerated executive power. Then it yields limitations on the role of...
