26/04/2023 | 16:41:48 Okay, I am not used to this one, I am sorry. So thanks Mr Simon MOUTQUIN for the report. I agree with most of the debates and recommendations included in the report and I invite everybody to support it, of course. I would like to raise just two points in addition. One is a general point and the other is more specific. Towards the end of the report it is stated, and I quote, "It is no longer possible to follow a productivist path that seeks to exploit nature.

This misuse has already hurt many citizens of third-country nationals, including citizens of my own country. The report is extremely detailed and overly technical, but the main arguments are very simple and clear. The report emphasises that all countries... 28/04/2022 | 15:44:12 Thank you. Thank you so much, Mr President. I would also like to congratulate Madam Rapporteur for this report and recommendation. The report mainly describes some of the key problems about human rights, democracy and the rule of law in member states.
