Speeches since 2019

26/04/2022 | 16:51:30 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, Like our rapporteur, whose work I commend, I obviously advocate a human rights-based approach to disability. I believe that people with disabilities must be included in society and have the same rights as their fellow citizens. However, I do not condemn, on principle, institutionalisation, which may correspond to the needs of certain individuals or families. It should not be systematic, but it may be necessary, for example, when the person... 25/04/2022 | 18:16:02 Mister President, My dear colleagues, First of all, I would like to thank our colleague Mr. Dimitri HOUBRON for this work which highlights the dangers of children's exposure to pornographic content. Due to the development of information and communication technologies, our children are exposed to pornographic content much earlier in life and much more easily than in the past. This exposure has an impact on their psychological and physical development. If it is still too early to draw up a... 15/03/2022 | 15:29:34 Mister Chairman, Dear Colleagues, First of all, I would like to express my solidarity with Ukraine and to pay special tribute to our colleagues. They sounded the alarm during the previous part-session. Unfortunately, we were unable to perceive the urgency of their words. I call on Russia to cease its military actions and withdraw its forces from the entire territory of Ukraine immediately and unconditionally and to fully respect the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of... 28/01/2022 | 10:31:33 Mr President, Dear colleagues, I welcome the report by our colleague on the evolution of the monitoring procedure, which highlights some progress but also points out, all too often, the persistence of sometimes serious shortcomings. On reading this report, regardless of national circumstances, common features emerge, which are also dealt with in a cross-cutting manner by our Assembly. I am thinking of the lack of independence of the judicial system, the lack of independence or security of the... 27/01/2022 | 09:30:41 Madam President, I am delighted that our Assembly has agreed to hold this debate at a time when our continent is particularly affected by this pandemic. The particularly drastic restrictive measures put in place for accessing the Palais de l'Europe could not be a better illustration of this. The report presented to us, for which I congratulate our colleague, the rapporteur, reminds us that the European region alone, within the WHO, has recorded some 9 million additional cases and more than 21... 28/09/2021 | 11:56:23 Thank you, Madam President. Ladies and gentlemen, First of all, I too would like to congratulate our rapporteur on this report, which highlights the rise in socio-economic inequalities in Europe, both between the various states and within each state itself. These inequalities are a threat to the democracy and cohesion of our States, insofar as they give the impression that the institutions are neglecting a part of their population – the most vulnerable – which has fewer and fewer means to... 22/06/2021 | 18:31:58 Thank you, Mister President. I thank Baroness Doreen Massey for her report, which gives the Assembly the opportunity to debate a subject that is close to our hearts but which is probably greatly underestimated. The H1N1 crisis has been a real ordeal for many of our citizens, but children are particularly vulnerable and have probably expressed less of the shock of this period than other sections of the population. The impact of the pandemic on children's physical and mental health seems to me... 22/06/2021 | 12:01:53 Mister President, Ladies and gentlemen, First of all, I would like to thank our fellow rapporteur Mr Damien COTTIER for the quality of his report on Covid-19 passes, which highlights the various legal aspects of this issue. For my part, I should like to make a few comments on the health aspect. The issuing of a Covid-19 passport must certify that a person has been vaccinated against Covid-19, that he or she has recovered after contracting the disease or that he or she has tested negative... 21/04/2021 | 18:15:11 Thank you. The work of our rapporteur, Martine WONNER, highlights a major problem in Europe: chronic and long-term illnesses affect the lives of at least one third of the European population, as has already been said. While there is no consensus on a single definition of chronic and long-term illnesses, they all have the consequence of limiting the full enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms. This is generally linked to the potentially burdensome treatment and discrimination... 20/04/2021 | 17:09:15 Mr. President, Dear Colleagues, The EPP group wanted us to hold this current affairs debate on "Armenian prisoners of war, prisoners in captivity and displaced persons". I would like to start by reassuring Mr Samad SEYIDOV that the aim of the EPP Group is not to exaggerate the situation or to create obstacles to peace. I should tell you that earlier this year, the French delegation received both the Armenian ambassador and the Azerbaijani ambassador at the French Senate. Focussing on a...
