Speeches since 2019

22/06/2023 | 19:44:45 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Dear Chair, dear colleagues, I believe that after the Second Karabakh War, we now have a genuine opportunity for restoring peace, stability and prosperity in the region. But there are some conditions that would enable parties to restore the order and peace in the region. Firstly, third parties need to keep an equal distance and avoid biased statements. We need to make sure that this Assembly has an impartial attitude toward the dispute... 19/06/2023 | 15:41:36 Dear Mister President, First of all I thank both rapporteurs. In my absence in the next term I wish the Parliamentary Assembly an efficient follow-up to the conclusions of the Summit. First of all, of course, one issue is the implementation of the European Court of Human Rights verdicts. The Parliamentary Assembly should think about what to do, as I raised today in the Bureau, what to do if the Committee of Ministers continues the selective enforcement of the verdicts of the Court. Today the... 26/04/2023 | 19:44:59 Thank you Madam Chair, Once again Türkiye is being criticised here in a discriminatory manner. I am frank about this. First of all, the verdicts of the Court are binding for all, not just for Türkiye. The ratio of implementation by Türkiye is 89%. The average is around 80%. I raise this issue several times, giving the example of unimplemented, very important verdicts, not enforced by the Committee of Ministers in many meetings of the committees, in the presence of the Parliamentary Assembly... 26/04/2023 | 17:56:03 Thank you Mister Chairman, I will be brief. Let me thank once again all of the representatives of countries here for sending search and rescue teams, and for their generosity in donor conferences, and also for the condolences they extended here. I appreciate also the visit by the rapporteur Mr Simon MOUTQUIN. I wish he had had more time to visit other cities impacted severely impacted by the earthquake. I will not dispute anything in the report because we are discussing how to politically... 25/04/2023 | 16:45:45 Madam Chair, dear colleagues, We are getting close to the historic summit. Personally I feel excited to attend a summit in this organisation, even on the last day of my term here. Hopefully I will return to this Parliamentary Assembly in the next summit. On this occasion, I would like to thank everyone who gave us this opportunity, and who worked diligently to present our contributions as the Parliamentary Assembly to the summit for the new vision of the Council of Europe, especially Ms Fiona... 26/01/2023 | 17:49:13 Thank you, Madam Chair. Of course, I have a very complete experience of the monitoring process as Chairperson of the Turkish delegation. First of all, I thank the rapporteurs and Chair of the Committee, but I have some suggestions here. I defend Türkiye in the Turkish monitoring process, of course, but I am not a member of the monitoring committee just because I am not registered in a political group. So, I do not have any idea how others are doing, how to compare the Turkish process with... 26/01/2023 | 11:10:18 Dear President, Dear Colleagues, Russia’s unjustified war of aggression against Ukraine is about to enter its second year. There, sadly, does not appear to be an end in sight to this war. As the destruction continues, civilians are paying the highest price. Since October, we have been witnessing indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks, missile strikes at multiple urban locations, especially targeting civilian infrastructure. This continues with alarming frequency. In this regard, I thank... 24/01/2023 | 10:05:54 Good morning, everybody.  The sitting is open.  This morning, the Agenda calls for the election of two judges to the European Court of Human Rights in respect of Iceland and Denmark. The list of candidates and biographical notices are to be found in documents 15685 and Addendum 2 and 15670 and 15671. The voting for each election will take place by individual electronic secret ballot using the Scytl online voting platform. Voting will be between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. today. Each political... 23/01/2023 | 17:39:30 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear President, Dear Colleagues, While it is crucial to defeat DAESH on ground, it is also of great importance to bring those responsible from the crimes of DAESH to the justice. For this reason, I thank to the rapporteur for his detailed work on how we could hold those fighters to account in line with the international humanitarian law. We believe that the ideal resolution to the problem of foreign DAESH fighters is that foreign fighters... 14/10/2022 | 11:00:23 Thank you. We heard also the opinion of the mover of the main amendment, but it seems the Committee is obviously in favour of the sub-amendment. Is that so Mr Alain MILON? Then I shall now put the second sub-amendment to the vote. The voting is open.  Okay, the voting is closed. May I ask to display the results? Okay. With these numbers, the sub-amendment is agreed. Now, we come to the main amendment as amended by sub-amendment. Does anyone wish to speak against the amendment as amended? It...
