Human rights, a watchword for the Luxembourg Prime Minister

PACE President Anne Brasseur today met with Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel on the occasion of his official visit to Strasbourg to discuss the political priorities of the Council of Europe and means of implementing them.

Both pointed out that the Council of Europe's role, particularly with regard to the conflict in Ukraine, in relations with Russia or concerning the general human rights situation in Europe, is more important than ever.

The Prime Minister also underlined the role played by the Parliamentary Assembly as a key forum for dialogue and assured President Brasseur of the full support of his government, for which human rights are a watchword.
