26/04/2023 | 17:26:53 Mister President, Dear colleagues, I want to express my solidarity with Türkiye and its people, who are currently struggling to secure people's basic needs after a massive earthquake. More than 57 000 victims and thousands injured – it's a tragedy. Last year France and Spain suffered from devastating forest fires that deprived thousands of people of their homes. In Germany, severe floods destroyed entire villages. The list is long. I thank the rapporteur for this timely and important report... 25/01/2023 | 19:25:41 Mister President, The Istanbul Convention is the most far-reaching international convention for preventing and combating violence against women.

Thank you. It's a lot. It's a really interesting report. The report underlines the role of political actors in preventing stigmatisation. This is a meaningful aspect. We can learn to meet differences only by facing difference. Some people have no experience of meeting Muslims. People also often still often wrongfully link Islam to extremism, such as fears of...
