09/10/2023 | 17:47:17 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) This assembly should condemn in the strongest terms the violent armed attack against the police of the Republic of Kosova on 24 September in the north of the country. This attack is a criminal and dangerous act of aggression against the stability, integrity, independence, and law and order of Kosova, but not only. It is also a grave threat to the security and stability of our whole region, with direct consequences for our common Europe. The... 25/01/2023 | 16:05:40 Thank you, Madam Speaker. Dear colleagues, Coming from the Western Balkans, I believe that it is a legitimate argument to say that Albania is among the most interested countries in peace, stability and prosperity in the region. That's among the most concerned about the increased tensions, especially between Serbia and Kosovo. We have proven that by encouraging more sustainable regional cooperation and making use of all the possible means at our disposal, we bring all the countries of the... 21/06/2022 | 19:51:16 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Dear Mr. Chair of the sitting, Dear colleagues, I fully endorse the report and kindly thank the rapporteur for his work. Democracy security is a benchmark for peace The aggression in Ukraine reminded us that the declining of democracy brings conflicts and conflicts bring war The decline of democracy does not happen immediately in a day but it comes slowly when rule of law, human rights and participatory democracy die a little every day... 27/04/2022 | 16:25:29 Thank you, Mr President, dear colleagues. Let me first congratulate Mr Frank SCHWABE for this excellent report. I think the report is well inclusive of all the issues and I have just a call for all of us here and for our parliaments that we do what we have been called to do based on this recommendation and draft resolution that we will vote later on. I want to stop on three questions.  The first question is related to the leadership that is requested from the member states of the Council of... 26/04/2022 | 11:34:22 Thank you, Mr President. I'll join the congratulation of all the Greeks here for the excellent report of our rapporteur. This is a report placed very well in this very critical situation Europe is living due to the Russian aggression to Ukraine. The Western Balkans have changed a lot over the last year. The progress is also due to an organisation like ours, which helped our countries on their way to democracy, promoting human rights and a functioning rule of law. The Council of Europe is... 28/01/2022 | 10:53:19 Thank you. Mr President, esteemed colleagues. I'd like to thank all of our colleagues who continued with the monitoring activity, despite all the challenges of the pandemic. This has to be marked as a good thing. It seems from the report's text that the lack of country visits due to Covid-19 has impeded rapporteurs from accessing the situation of the countries and obtaining more reliable and all-inclusive information. Sometimes fluctuations in the appointment of the rapporteurs has had an... 25/01/2021 | 17:44:02 I hope you are all well and having a healthy year. I do support this report and I do very much appreciate the important contribution that the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and especially the Monitoring Committee have given for the respect of human rights and institutional practice in the member States, particularly for Albania. The monitoring report for Albania highlights three main issues. The first one welcomes the electoral reform in the country. It encourages the... 30/01/2020 | 18:56:18 Thank you, Mister President. Thank you, Sir Roger GALE, for the presentation shortly of the reportve And I'd like to thank the co-rapporteurs, especially the ones for Albania, who has done a very good job. I would like to stress again that the monitoring procedure is a procedure that should help countries become better places, and under this philosophy we in Albania do see the recommendation in this constructive spirit. And at this point I would like to share with you the news that today the... 28/01/2020 | 18:48:52 Thank you Mr Speaker, Dear colleagues, Allow me to congratulate the rapporteur for the work done and for the full panorama based on facts that he presented. I strongly believe that the promotion and the protection of journalists and their safety is not only essential for the functioning of democracy, but it becomes a must and should be reinforced in many parts of Europe and of the world where propaganda, populism and lack of constructive opposition create spaces for abuse of powers... 24/01/2019 | 17:48:47 First, I wish to thank Sir Roger GALE and the rapporteurs for their work, and to express our recognition for the great contribution this Parliamentary Assembly makes towards strengthening the rule of law in monitored countries. I hope you will allow me to make a general remark about the reports that the Assembly passes. Monitoring is a mechanism that the Parliamentary Assembly uses to assist members in upholding democratic principles and human rights, so rapporteurs should be very diligent in...
