Speeches since 2019

03/10/2019 | 18:56:09 Thank you, Madam President. First of all, I thank all the speakers for their interventions, and I also take the opportunity to thank the Committee – to which I belong here in the Council of Europe – more particularly to Angela and Penelope, who have really contributed a lot and given a lot of their time so that this report be published, as well as my colleagues in Paris, who will recognise themselves. Just in response, Mr GAVAN, let me first of all assure you of all my support in relation to... 03/10/2019 | 17:55:10 Thank you, Madam President. Mr President of the Committee on Migration, Refugees and Displaced Persons Ladies and gentlemen, Dear colleagues, First of all, let me just express my solidarity with the police officers of the police headquarters in Paris, following the attack they have suffered.

Its recommendations are clear, precise and important given the situation described, to which we must respond collectively and in solidarity. The humanitarian situation on the Greek islands, as well as the living conditions experienced by thousands of refugees, asylum seekers and migrants is a matter for concern. Greece knows that it is not alone as it faces the need to host migrants; several European Union countries are providing...
