13/10/2022 | 18:03:17 On behalf of the Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group, I congratulate Ms Edite ESTRELA for this important report. She states: sport engages, motivates and drives progress. It can be a factor in emancipation and in changing attitudes. This is true. In sports clubs, people of different backgrounds meet each other. The doctor stands along the field together with the plumber to support the children. Children who are not the best in school can excel in sports, and so be empowered. Sport is... 12/10/2022 | 19:28:02 I thank both rapporteurs for their important work. I have a few remarks and questions on safe third countries. We should not only focus on a definition of safety as the report does but also on the question – what can be regarded as a country of origin or third country?

It is important for the International Community to show commitment to the Western Balkans and not forget the region, especially in light of the recent steps towards Ukraine and Moldova. Further, the war in Ukraine has underlined the importance of EU enlargement towards the Western Balkans to prevent instability in the heart of Europe, especially given the ongoing attempts by Russia, but also... 23/06/2022 | 11:40:19 Thank you. I will start with my sincere condolences to the relatives of the victims of the downing. And I would like to thank the rapporteur, not only for his excellent report but also for his sincere attention to and compassion for the next of kin, with whom he spoke, even this morning, I understood.
