    “Human rights, democratic standards and the rule of law provide a basis for guaranteeing long-term security, stability, and peaceful development of societies across Europe,” Deputy Minister Piotr Wawrzyk said during a session of the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers in Elsinore.

    “We can no longer ignore flagrant cases of international law violations among Council of Europe Member States. Our inaction undermines the credibility of the whole Organization,” the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy emphasized in his address.

    As Deputy Minister Wawrzyk also pointed out, “To guarantee a better and more secure future, we should invest in the young generations,” by ensuring a system of education that is accessible to all and which responds to the needs of today’s world. In this context, he also referred to measures Poland has taken to improve development opportunities for children, such as the 500+ programme.

    Gathering once a year for a ministerial session, the Committee of Ministers is the key decision-making body of the Council of Europe. The annual meeting brought together ministers and deputy ministers from the Organization’s 47 Member States. At the conclusion of the 128th session, Denmark handed over the Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers to Croatia, which will preside over the Committee during the next 6 months.
