Address to Seanad Éireann by Ms Anne Brasseur (Resumed)
Snippet Contents:

On behalf of the Fianna Fáil group I am honoured to welcome Ms Brasseur to the Upper House. It is an historic day not only for us, but, as she outlined, for her as she is addressing a full Parliament during her tenure as president.
As was already outlined, Ireland is a founder member of the Council of Europe and has a very proud history and tradition of participation in it. I could not help but reflect on the circumstances in which the Council of Europe came together in 1949, in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War when human rights had been trampled and the concept of human rights had not been developed. It is to the credit of those founding fathers that they set down concepts at the time which have resonated to the present day.
It is in this context that I was particularly interested in Ms Brasseur's remarks about the relationship between the Council of Europe and Russia. I applaud her efforts in this regard. As she outlined, and she was probably somewhat restrained, it is one of the most serious crises to affect Europe since the Second World War. I am curious to know how she thinks it will develop in the coming weeks and months. The fact she has invited the newly elected president of Ukraine to address the Parliamentary Assembly is worthwhile. There seems to be some movement between Russia and Ukraine in terms of trying to lessen tensions. Ms Brasseur has been pivotal to the discussions and developments in recent months and I am curious to know her overall view.
