Speeches since 2019

20/06/2022 | 12:28:32 Thank you, indeed. I did not know that I should do both at the same time. Yes, our delegation was composed of 25 people. We, as usual, co-operated with ODIHR and OSCE and the European Parliament Mission. Once again, I have to express our gratitude to the members of the Venice Commission. They are always very useful, they are helpful and they are providing us with many, many very good observations. Indeed, as the Assembly, we only observed one election in Serbia, 2020, Covid-19 situation. And... 20/06/2022 | 12:05:45 Thank you very much Mr President, Dear colleagues, I'm very pleased to present to you the latest progress report of the Bureau of the Assembly and Standing Committee of our Parliamentary Assembly, covering the period from April to June 2022. During the reporting period, our Parliamentary Assembly has of course decided to pursue its discussion of the consequences of the Russian Federation's continued aggression against Ukraine by seizing our Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy to... 28/04/2022 | 12:54:35 Thank you very much to all those who have spoken today. After what Mr Oleksii GONCHARENKO and all our Ukrainian friends have said today, in the face of such a tragedy that has befallen their country, it is very difficult to speak from a legal point of view, but we have to do so because it can allow us to punish all the atrocities that we are witnessing. I understand the hesitations of my colleagues, Mr George KATROUGALOS, Mr Paul GAVAN, Mr Erkin GADIRLI as well, but I believe that in my... 28/04/2022 | 11:13:42 Thank you very much, Mr Tiny KOX.  Thank you very much, President, for this introduction and your words.  We have indeed been, as the Presidential Committee, to Ukraine. We witnessed the big courage and the struggle of our Ukrainian friends. That was very, very instructive. Dear Colleagues, Yesterday we had an excellent discussion on the report by the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy on the consequences of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, in general. Today, we have before... 15/03/2022 | 09:59:54 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, The date of 24 February will go down in history as a major turning point. On behalf of the Group of the European People's Party, I would like to pay tribute to the innocent victims and salute the courage of the Ukrainian people who are defending their country, their freedom and their identity. Faced with the violence of the Russian army that is bombing cities and killing hundreds of innocent civilians, including women and children, we cannot remain... 27/01/2022 | 17:56:18 Thank you, Madam President. Dear colleagues, First of all, on behalf of the EPP Group, I would like to thank the rapporteurs for this report and congratulate them on the quality of their work. At a time when the Armenian President, Mr Armen Sarkissian, has just resigned, on 23 January, on the grounds that he did not have the means to influence internal and external policy, this report constitutes an important contribution to a current reflection on the Armenian institutional system. Indeed, I... 27/01/2022 | 16:12:06 Mr President, Ministers, Ladies and Gentlemen, Madam Secretary General, Dear colleagues, It is with great emotion that I am participating today, as President of the EPP/CD Group, in this International Day of Commemoration for the victims of the Holocaust. I have listened with great respect and emotion to the messages and testimonies of the survivors of the Shoah, including Simone Veil, a personality with an exceptional career. I bow to the memory of the millions of victims of Nazi barbarism... 26/01/2022 | 16:09:25 Thank you very much, President. Dear colleagues, I would like to start with congratulations to Mr Piero FASSINO but also to Mr Samad SEYIDOV. To start your duties with such a hot topic is really challenging, and I wish you, in the future, some less stressful duties. The Group of the European People's Party fully shares the view of the Monitoring Committee about the deteriorating situation with regards to pluralism, human rights, and fundamental freedoms in the Russian Federation and the way... 26/01/2022 | 10:47:34 Thank you, Mr President. I would like to thank our rapporteur for this report and I agree with most of the theses that are included here in the summary, in the recommendations. I am totally convinced that young players should not be treated as objects; that is fundamental. And something has to be done about the transfer rules, about the rules of national federations, because the scandals that have occurred at a very high level are everywhere, including in our respective national federations... 24/01/2022 | 15:57:51 Let me begin with congratulations. We worked together in the Presidential Committee for four years, almost four years. I strongly believe that the atmosphere that we created contributed to peaceful work and to consensus. The word consensus is something which is very close to my heart. In many things we did it. I wish you a very good two years and I hope that in the same aim we are going to cooperate. Of course I would like to congratulate you, Mr Rik DAEMS, for the last two years. We heard...
