Speeches since 2019

28/04/2023 | 10:10:37 Thank you very much, Madam President, Ladies and gentlemen, Today we are talking about San Marino, truly a fascinating microstate, an enclave surrounded by Italy, whose democratic and republican structures go back centuries. It is, in fact, the oldest republic in the world, and it has been highly interesting to write this report. San Marino was selected on 3 February 2021, in the framework of this so-called periodic review procedure in which all Council of Europe States participate, and... 23/01/2023 | 15:56:01 Thank you very much.   Mister President,   Also on behalf of the Left Group, congratulations on your election, Mister Tiny KOX. You really did an outstanding job last year. I also agree with everything that our rapporteur, Mr George KATROUGALOS, said, perhaps a word again about the war that we have all condemned here, the Russian war of aggression. I believe that in addition to this clear condemnation, we must also think more about what possibilities there are to end this war. In my country... 10/10/2022 | 12:25:39 Mr President, I would also like to touch on three issues. Earlier this morning we commemorated the victims as a result of the new attacks on Kiev and many other Ukrainian cities. We have seen a further escalation of this war. And it is right, of course, that we remember the victims. It is also right that we condemn the acts and condemn Russia's attacks, as we have often done. But I also think that we also have to put our energy into how we get out of this further escalation. There is... 20/06/2022 | 12:24:45 Thank you very much, Miste President, Ladies and Gentlemen, The progress report always offers the opportunity to reflect, to think about the situation we are in. If we now look back at the last few months and look forward, then this terrible war in Ukraine, Russia's withdrawal - or actually the previous withdrawal of Russia from the Council of Europe and now also from the Court of Justice is a very serious setback overall. It has to be said: not progress, but a setback. One hundred and forty... 28/04/2022 | 18:07:25 Thank you very much, Mr President, Many thanks also to the two rapporteurs, Mr Titus CORLĂŢEAN and Mr Claude KERN, I would like to say perhaps at the outset that I find the report balanced, and that it also contains the right orientations and recommendations. In essence, you can say that this report, this resolution says; there is progress in Georgia, but there are still many problems. You can say it in other ways, but that is sort of the core direction of this report, and I want to underline... 15/03/2022 | 10:49:38 Thank you very much, Mister President, It was in this Assembly in June 1989 that Michael Gorbachev formulated the perspective of a common European home, long before the fall of the Berlin Wall and the upheaval in Eastern Europe. 24 February is not only a black day for Ukrainians, of course, for the people there in particular. It is also a black day for this perspective, for the perspective of a common European home. We are standing on the edge of a new Iron Curtain across Europe.This war and... 28/01/2022 | 10:14:55 Thank you very much Mr President. I would like to congratulate you as well and underline what you said – thanks to all the rapporteurs and the chairs of the committees and especially the brains behind them, the Secretariat. I think this Progress Report shows that our Assembly is willing to do its task under really difficult political and pandemic circumstances. I want to underline the common understanding of the Committee that in-person contacts are a necessary condition for meaningful... 27/01/2022 | 09:15:19 I will speak German. Thank you very much. Thank you also, to Mr. Stefan SCHENNACH for this report. We agree on a lot of things. The report, again, points out that there has to be much better pandemic-planning in the future. I agree with that. It is also pointed out that we should, for example, abolish patents. This is also the position of the Assembly, which I myself have also contributed to; there are very many correct things. Nevertheless, I would like to point out a few points that I see... 28/09/2021 | 12:34:17 Thank you very much, Madam President, Ladies and gentlemen, First of all, I would like to thank the rapporteur, Ms Selin SAYEK BÖKE, most sincerely for this very good report, which has also come at the right time and, as our speaker Mr Momodou Malcolm JALLOW has already said, has the full support of the Group of the European United Left. This report follows in the tradition of a series of reports adopted by this House in recent times. I would remind you that in June we had the debate on... 22/06/2021 | 17:50:12 Thank you very much, Mister President, I will say a few words, but I will be brief. First of all, thank you very much for the many and also very positive feedbacks. I was really very pleased. I would like to take up one point in more detail, the point made by Mr François CALVET and also Ms Reina de BRUIJN-WEZEMAN; the question of the relationship to the EU's stability and growth pact. Mister François CALVET, you said that the EU has just reached an agreement on how it should deal with this...
