Anne Brasseur and Norbert Lammert call for Council of Europe commitments to be met

Today’s talks in Berlin between PACE President Anne Brasseur and the President of the German Bundestag Norbert Lammert focused on the commitments all Council of Europe member states have made to uphold and promote human rights, the rule of law and democracy as well as on current threats to these in several member states, according to a press release issued by the Bundestag’s press service.

Particularly with respect to Russia and Ukraine, both sides should be expected to fulfil the obligations and commitments they have undertaken on an equal basis, they stressed.

Previously, Mr Lammert and Ms Brasseur had attended a wreath-laying ceremony in front of the French Embassy and a vigil at the Brandenburg Gate for the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
