[…] It is written in red: PROVISIONAL !!!!

Its resolutions are not legally binding on the 47 states of the Council of Europe, or on the European Union, "PACE said.

The body nonetheless recalls its reputation as a “democratic conscience” of Europe and the fact that “its positions carry moral value at the international level”: “They have an indirect influence on national legislation since the same parliamentarians grouped together in within the Assembly vote - in their parliaments - national laws. The Assembly speaks on behalf of 830 million Europeans, through their parliaments, and its positions therefore have a significant influence in debates within the EU. "
