Addrsss of the President Xhaferi at the Conference of Speakers of the European Union Parliaments
Session Ii: European Security and Defence
In the past years the security situation in Europe and beyond is a serious challenge for the European Union as well as for the aspirant states.

Maybe it may sound unusual that at the very beginning of today's meeting of the Committee on Political System and Inter-Ethnic Relations, I will ask all of us the question, or if you prefer, the dilemma - is the Assembly of the Republic of Macedonia moving in a direction that ensures full realization of the principles of contemporary parliamentarism and parliamentary democracy? Of course, the dilemma, or the question, concerns primarily the exercise of the oversight role of the Assembly over the executive branch.
