“The risk of a new military confrontation in the heart of Europe is not a remote one,” said Zsolt Nemeth (Hungary, EC/DA), opening a current affairs debate on the topic of recent challenges to security in Europe.
Outlining a series of new threats around Europe and the world, Mr Nemeth said the Council of Europe, while not involved in defence issues, “can and should” get involved in issues related to democratic security. “But do we still share a common vision of Europe, and of our common future?” he asked.
Twenty members put their names down to take part in the debate.
No report is prepared for a current affairs debate, and no text is adopted.
