Anne Brasseur: 'my objective has been to ensure that Europe responds to its challenges with unity and resolve', Anne Brasseur says

At the end of the last PACE Bureau meeting under her Presidency, Anne Brasseur called on all members of PACE to stay united in front of the major challenges Europe is faced with.

“During the two years of my Presidency, my primary objective has been to ensure that Europe responds to these challenges with unity and resolve”, she stressed.

“This is not only because the political objective of our Organisation is to defend European unity through democracy, human rights and the rule of law, but, because these values are truly universal and every single individual on our continent must be able to enjoy them. I strongly believe that the Europe of 47 has an extraordinary role to play in extraordinarily difficult times. What unites us are the values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law. Co-operation is our strength”, she concluded.
