National Assembly Delegation at PACE Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy Meeting
At today’s meeting, the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) appointed German MP Peter Beyer its special rapporteur for Kosovo-Metohija.
The Serbian delegation engaged in a brisk exchange with the Committee Chairperson Ria Oomen-Ruijten due to the invitation and presence of so-called Kosovo Ambassador who is not accredited by the CoE. The Serbian delegation found her presence to be a form of pressure exerted on the Committee members in the vote for rapporteur.
Though the Committee Chairperson admitted it was a mistake and the Serbian delegation insisted that the representative of so-called Kosovo be removed, that did not happen.
The Serbian delegation decided to inform PACE President Liliane Maury Pasquier about the incident and the Committee Chairperson’s actions.
At the meeting of the Committee on Political Affairs and Democracy, the National Assembly was represented by delegation members Marija Obradovic and Prof. Dr Zarko Obradovic, headed by Dr Aleksandra Tomic.
