  Petros Kokkalis (GUE/NGL). – Mr President, Mr President of the Council, your country has adopted the most inspiring climate goal in the world – of achieving carbon neutrality by 2035. However, as we stand, we risk missing the targets set by the Paris Accord, especially in view of the latest climate events and our increasing comprehension of their nature. Finland, with its bold climate action, shows the way of the future and we really need your progressive leadership. I therefore ask you fully to integrate the 17 Sustainable Development Goals globally agreed by the United Nations, as measured by Eurostat, into the new multiannual financial framework. Let’s invest in a world for all people. Thank you, and I wish Finland the best for a successful presidency.
