11/10/2023 | 16:31:14 Thank you very much. Dear Mister President, Ladies and gentlemen, In the early hours of 7 October, militias of Islamic Jihad and Hamas from Gaza carried out a terrible massacre. Not only did numerous civilians, women, children, and the elderly die, but also, we heard it before, numerous civilians were taken hostage. We have seen horrific images, including of young women. Hamas representatives admitted that the attack was prepared in close consultation with the Iranian leadership and thus... 22/06/2023 | 17:01:46 Thank you very much, Madam Chair, Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to thank the rapporteurs very much, because times are very difficult, and we have to continue to deal with all these difficult issues.

It has been a gravely difficult time for all these people, this time is still very difficult. There was the celebration, Bayram in Türkiye, and yet it was not a real celebration for the relatives. Therefore, it has also been important that we... 27/01/2023 | 11:18:56 Thank you very much, Mr President,Ladies and gentlemen,I would like to thank the rapporteur for this report, also for going over the various options we have in relation to OCEAN. And we know that one of the challenges of the Council of Europe is the dissemination of our work from here to the respective member states. Of course, globalisation has also shown that there are a number of challenges we need to meet. And in this context, of course, the role of universities and research institutions...
