However, the risk of an internal conflict is still there. The sudden collapse of the previous Afghan government recognised by the international community did not lead to mass migration, as feared, yet. Nevertheless, an economic meltdown in Afghanistan may trigger such an exodus... 28/09/2021 | 17:12:27 Yes, dear colleagues, Following the modification of this morning's Agenda, we are now resuming consideration of the report titled "Socio-economic inequalities in Europe: time to restore social trust by strengthening social rights" (Doc. 15365) by holding votes on the draft resolution and draft recommendation.  First, draft resolution.

And all colleagues from EU members also repeated this here. This is a very cynical and contradictory approach. The Turkey EU statement was done and I was part of it in an emergency case, and Turkey... 24/06/2021 | 10:24:03 I really appreciate the tremendous and dedicated work by Mister rapporteur. As a country which is very experienced on diasporas, Turkey, and myself as a former consul in the diplomatic service, we try to contribute for its efficiency. Indeed dear colleagues, I will not repeat the previous speakers but I must say that Europe and the area of the Council of Europe in general would be the best place on earth for diaspora policies, diaspora practices, because of its complementary economies...
