The President made a statement concerning his participation, on behalf of Parliament, in the celebrations organised in Paris to mark the centenary of the signing of the Armistice which brought the First World War to an end and paid tribute to the 17 million who had lost their lives. He stressed the importance of the European project in standing up for the ideals of peace, freedom and prosperity and highlighted the impact that the end of the first global conflict had had on the existence of a number of European countries.

The President expressed Parliament's condolences to the families of the victims of the tragic floods which had recently hit parts of Italy; stressed that the EU could provide assistance from the Solidarity Fund and that Parliament was striving to make funds available as soon as possible; and expressed his concern at the proliferation of adverse weather events as a result of climate change across the planet. He noted that the COP24 meeting would be held in December in Katowice, Poland, and that this would be an opportunity to place Europe's leadership in the vanguard of the fight against global warming.

The President welcomed the acquittal, by the Supreme Court in Pakistan, and the freeing of Asia Bibi, who had been sentenced to death in 2010 for blasphemy, and confirmed that he was in contact with Ján Figeľ, Special Representative for the Promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief outside the EU, and the Pakistani authorities in support of the attempts to safeguard the freedom and safety of Asia Bibi and her family.
