13/10/2023 | 11:50:14 Madam Chair, Ladies and gentlemen, Let me start by congratulating the rapporteurs for the excellent report they were preparing and for raising such an important issue in the discussion in this Assembly. The modern world, which changes every day, offers young people various opportunities and confronts them with a huge choice. How to take advantage of these opportunities and how to make the right choice depends on the environment the children find themselves in. The tendency of teenagers to... 12/10/2023 | 20:14:02 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   One of the main directions of The Council of Europe’s work has been preventing hostilities in Europe, contributing to democratic security, which becomes significantly important in the risky security environment. Looking at what is happening in the world, we have to admit that The Council of Europe today has nothing to be proud of. The fact that conflicts within member states are not being resolved shows that the COE needs a major... 28/04/2023 | 10:59:20 Thank you, Madam Chair. Ladies and Gentlemen, It's my pleasure to speak here on behalf of the Committee on Social Affairs, Health and Sustainable Development and the rapporteur for opinion Ms Ruth JONES. I would like to praise the rapporteur Ms Fiona O'LOUGHLIN for her well documented report on youth and media. I appreciate the excellent approach to the topic, which has increasingly become an area of concern for a great number of parents and educators in the world and has been even truer... 26/04/2023 | 16:56:55 Mister President, dear colleagues, Climate change increased the threat to world peace and security. Over the past two decades the world has witnessed more than 2 500 natural disasters affecting billions of people. The consequences of the disasters that have hit our planet hinder efforts to eradicate poverty and endangered food security, human security, and make it even more difficult to work for peace and stability, as disruptions lead to instability, population displacement, and even... 25/01/2023 | 18:12:06 Thank you Mr Chairman, ladies and gentlemen. First of all, let me congratulate the three lady rapporteurs for the important issues they are raising in their reports. Ladies and gentlemen, I think that gender-based violence is a well-known issue in all our countries that is primarily committed by men as well as by community members and people who tolerate harmful masculine behaviours. The entire community must work together to put an end to violence in our neighbourhoods and it is important... 25/01/2023 | 13:06:43 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Mr. chairman, let me first thank Mr. Howell for raising such an important issue in times when different member states are facing consequences of armed conflicts For my country especially in recent times this question has become a top priority issue. Three-decade-long Armenian occupation of the territories of Azerbaijan is the main reason for the environmental degradation in the region. Prior to occupation, the Karabakh and Eastern Zangazur... 24/01/2023 | 19:02:47 Thank you, Chair. Ladies and gentlemen, We live in a very complicated period of time. The Covid-19 pandemic really became a challenge for people all over the world in terms of health protection, human rights, causing a psychological economical, social, and political crisis. The war in Ukraine caused a serious crisis for Ukrainian people, and affected the whole of Europe. Rising xenophobia and Islamophobia makes Europe very fragile. This is just a short list of the problems that Europe is... 14/10/2022 | 13:21:00 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) One of the severest humanitarian consequences of the former conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, that Azerbaijan is facing is landmines planted en masse on its territories. Unfortunately, over the period that has passed since the last part-session of our Assembly, the number of victims of landmines in Azerbaijan has continued to grow. Just last week, we had two killed and three seriously injured. Thus, since the signing of the Trilateral... 13/10/2022 | 17:53:22 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Ladies and gentlemen, Along with the way gender quotas are introduced in business and politics, there is still room for sexism and discrimination against women in other areas of activity. Women have longed proven, and prove daily, that they can do, they cannot only be on a par with men, but also surpass them in governance, politics, business, trade, and sport. Women frequently face prejudice in their participation and in practice of major professional sports, which... 24/06/2022 | 11:49:08 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Ladies and Gentlemen, Today the topic of green energy resources is of interest to the whole world. They talk about it in the news and environmentalists urged the heads of the countries to switch to green technologies as soon as possible in order to stop the climate crisis. Many countries, including the European Union, have already begun to implement their own Green Deal programmes, where renewable energy sources play a key role. Since the start of the pandemic, the...
