President Tajani paid tribute to the Mayor of Gdansk, Paweł Adamowicz, who has died following a violent attack on Sunday.
The President also remembered those who lost their lives to a terrorist attack in Strasbourg in December, including the journalists Antonio Megalizzi and Barto Pedro Orent-Niedzielski.
Listing several violent attacks in many member states, President Tajani appealed for open debate not to degenerate, as verbal and physical violence go hand in hand. The President informed the House that he planned to discuss with the mayor of Strasbourg how to pay tribute to the victims of the attack. He will propose to the EP’s Vice-Presidents and quaestors that the EP should name its radio studio after the two journalists killed in December.
