SAINT-PETERSBURG, October 14. /TASS/. Most of the parliaments of the member countries of the Council of Europe considered that the right of national delegations to the parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) can not be infringed, but only time will tell how this position will be directly reflected in the PACE. This was stated on Saturday by the Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.
“Today we see only one thing – that all national parliaments are, for the most part – sure, maybe with the exception of Ukraine and some Baltic countries share the position that the rights of national delegations [to the PACE] must not be infringed. But as it has then to be translated by national parliaments through their representatives in the Parliamentary Assembly, let’s wait, time will tell,” he said.
