30/09/2021 | 10:31:18 Madam President, can I first of all thank the Secretariat for their incredibly hard work over these few days in preparing for me this report which I think has been widely accepted as a very good basis for us to continue our conversations about Afghanistan. I'd also like to thank colleagues generally because I think it's true to say that the compassion that we've heard mainly across the debate this morning reflects both well on this Assembly, but reflects actually what we should be talking... 30/09/2021 | 09:09:15 Thank you, Madam President. Can I just begin by making this very obvious point, but the all of us will remember forever those graphic pictures of people fleeing for their lives attempting to hang onto the bottom of planes taking off from the airport in Kabul only to fall to their death. Those pictures will live with us for, I think, forever. Those pictures are important because we will not see the pictures of the many-headed crisis that Afghanistan and its people now face. We know that that... 24/06/2021 | 16:48:32 Many congratulations to our rapporteur Mr Momodou Malcolm JALLOW, on what is an excellent report.

But in fact things go a little deeper than that. We know that the world believes that Mr Lukashenko is not the president of Belarus. He did not win the election last August; that was almost certainly won by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya. But of course it isn't just the... 22/06/2021 | 10:18:43 Joining the congratulations to our rapporteurs for what I think is a generally worthwhile incredible report. I just wanted to say a few words, first of all, about the the obvious central importance of freedom of the media, free and independent media of all kinds, social media, traditional media, is fundamental in our democracies. We cannot have free and fair elections without those and along with the independence of the judiciary, I can think of nothing more important than independent...
