First and foremost, I'd like to say that the issue of the situation in Afghanistan needs a much more thorough and serious discussion than this sort of debate, because we're talking about serious events which threaten peace and stability in the world, and indeed many of the states and organisations. I don't want to talk about some of the concerns about the current situation in Afghanistan, because many colleagues have already referred to those points, and I agree... 24/06/2021 | 18:20:16 President, First of all, I should like to say that the subject matter of the report is extremely important.

Or do we rather find ourselves in a situation where, as we just saw from the previous speaker, this has just become an anti-Russian forum? When I hear... 28/01/2021 | 09:47:24 Thank you, President.  Mister President, in one of your first statements at this session you stressed the fact that the values of this organisation must be above politics. In this resolution that we're discussing today, this is really evidence of how principles can be hostage to political manipulation. Principals are principles when they are based on honesty and when they are based on facts, and on a factual analysis. Principles really are principles when they are universally applied to all...
