24/06/2021 | 10:03:11 Thank you, Mister Chair. It takes time to take the floor from online I think. Dear president, Dear colleagues, Let me begin by congratulating the rapporteur for his prominent work on highlighting the importance of diaspora communities for the host countries. As many of you know, six million people of Turkish descent currently live in European countries. They continue to be a part of their host countries and to contribute their host states. Turkish diaspora in Europe has a history of more than... 23/06/2021 | 19:29:06 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Colleagues, Crimean Tatars have been suffering from all kinds of harassment and violence for years but receive little attention from other international organizations and countries.

Dear President, dear colleagues and dear Secretary General of the OECD, First of all, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his considerable effort in preparing this report which is a valuable contribution to the debate on the taxation of digital economy and the international efforts on the issue, particularly by the OECD.
