26/01/2024 | 11:49:54 Thank you, Mister President. It is very important that we, as the main guardian of human rights in Europe, stand strong against all violence against children. Our children are not only our future. They are our hope for a strong and free society. Every child deserves a safe childhood. It is our work to make sure that that happens. This is important for fairness and for our future, together in Europe. Protecting our children is at the heart of our work. One of the biggest problems we face is... 25/01/2024 | 17:24:16 Thank you, Mister President. Belarusians are filled with despair and deep sadness, especially when they talk about their home country.

It shows that the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) does more than just the economic. The OECD also works in many other areas. Since it started in 1960, after the Marshall Plan, the OECD has also focused on things supporting democracy, law, fairness, helping the environment, and taxes, to name a few. Because it does so many things, more countries have to join OECD. It... 22/06/2023 | 20:00:30 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) I want to start by saying that I fully support the exclusion of Russian and Belarusian athletes from international competitions. We live in a time where sports have the unique ability to unite us and promote positive values. But we cannot ignore the challenging situations that affect us around the world. One of these situations is the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has had a devastating impact on people's lives. That's why we are...
