Speeches since 2019

12/10/2022 | 17:45:54 Thank you very much, President. First of all, I would like to thank the rapporteurs. I would like to congratulate them for a well-structured report touching upon key issues concerning the democratic feature, the element of a larger democracy in Hungary and the constitutional issues that exist in that country.  We are concerned about a number of issues which are taking place in Hungary, because we in Romania are partners with Hungary on a number of joint projects. We also have issues as far as... 27/04/2022 | 16:00:33 Thank you, Chairman. First of all I would like to extend my compliments to Mr Frank SCHWABE for his excellent report. We have already been seeing for two months, when the war of aggression launched by the Russian Federation against Ukraine began, completely ignoring and flagrantly violating, the international law and its obligations. Two months in which the humanitarian, economic and security consequences are being felt in Europe and throughout the world. Two months in which the member States... 15/03/2022 | 12:00:21 Dear Colleagues, I will start by telling you a Russian proverb that we in Romania know very well, which goes like this "We will fight for peace until no stone is left upon stone". Now you can understand very well what Mr Minister Sergei Viktorovich LAVROV said, that this is not an attack on Ukraine, but it is, I know, something to restore the freedom of the Russians. Here is what can I tell you. Practically, the Russian Federation, through military aggression against Ukraine, has clearly... 24/06/2021 | 10:16:42 Dear colleagues, dear President, First of all, I would like to express my greatest support for this report, because of the proposals that the draft resolution and the draft recommendation contain. As a senator representing Romanians living beyond the country's borders, I am following this topic with great interest and I am concerned about the way in which my fellow citizens are integrated in the states where they have chosen to live, in the majority of cases, as a result of the European Union... 22/06/2021 | 18:45:10 Thank you, Speaker. First of all, I would like to thank Baroness Doreen Massey, who has practically become the voice of the children in the Chamber for her initiative in creating this report, which draws our attention to the problems faced by children in the epidemiological context generated by the Covid-19 pandemic. I am pleased to find in the draft resolution references to the situation of children whose parents are working abroad, a subject which, as you know, I discussed during the work... 19/04/2021 | 18:08:28 Thank you, Mister President,   First of all I would like to congratulate her on her excellent report and, above all, on all her activity for the benefit of the Parliamentary Assembly so far. I would first like to emphasise the role of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, which is an instrument born of the ideals of peace and freedom of the European nations, and which is extremely important for the unity of the European continent, for the creation of a democratic... 25/01/2021 | 17:10:43 Dear colleagues, As usual, the January session hosts the debate of this report, which presents a description of the progress or regression recorded by states in the monitoring process or during the post-monitoring period. The current epidemiological context created by the COVID-19 pandemic has inevitably affected the monitoring process, especially with the impossibility of organising visits for documentation in the monitored states, damage that has been compensated by closer monitoring of... 27/06/2019 | 11:04:14 Dear colleagues, I would first of all like to congratulate the rapporteurs on their initiative in drawing up these reports on the violation of the rights of children in its most serious forms, namely violence, abuse, exploitation and torture. I am speaking as rapporteur for the Committee on Social Affairs, with regard to the impact of migration and work on children left without parents in their countries of origin. Ladies and gentlemen, the protection of children's rights requires a very... 24/01/2019 | 19:49:36 Thank you very much to all those who commended the report, and thanks, too, to those of you who did not like the report so much. That is the beauty of this debating Chamber. What I have seen here tonight is that there are some parliamentarians who look towards the future, whereas others look back towards history. Those who are looking to the future felt that this discussion was very important, because we are inviting the States who have not ratified the Framework Convention to come in and... 24/01/2019 | 18:45:50 It is my honour to present to the Assembly a report on persons belonging to national minorities. I am sorry to say that this subject is no longer of such interest in the Council of Europe as it was more than 20 years ago, when the Organisation brought into force the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. The drop in interest in the issue culminated in 2011, with the scrapping of the Committee of Experts on Issues relating to the Protection of National Minorities. Only...
