Thank you Madam President, Honourable Members,

It is really evident that the virus pandemic has been accompanied by an ‘infodemic’, by a pandemic of disinformation. We have witnessed a wave of false and misleading information, and an exponential increase in targeted influence operations by foreign actors.

Le respect de tous les droits de l’homme est un pilier des sociétés libres, stables et prospères. A cet égard, l’UE est fière d’être à avant-garde de la promotion et de la protection universelles de tous les droits fondamentaux.

Respect for all human rights is a pillar of free, stable, prosperous societies and the EU is proud to be at the forefront of the universal promotion and protection of all the fundamental rights.

إن احترام كل حقوق الإنسان عماد المجتمعات الحرة والمستقرة والمزدهرة وفي هذا السياق، يعتز الاتحاد الأوروبي بتموقعه في طليعة المؤسسات التي تنهض الحقوق الأساسية جميعها وتعمل على حمايتها.

Child labour affects 152 million children worldwide. The EU has been working with UNICEF and other partners to put an end to a phenomenon that takes childhood away and puts the future of millions of kids worldwide at risk. Earlier this week, EU High Representative Josep Borrell and UNICEF Executive Director, Henrietta Fore, held a phone call during which they discussed ways to continue working together to fight the socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis, and agreed to jointly promote the education of children, including digital learning as a priority. “School is the most important equality producer in the world,” Borrell said. One of last year’s themes for the joint EU-UNICEF #TheRealChallenge social media campaign was child labour.
