  • I'm shocked by the death of two years old Mawda. Police shooting on smugglers and migrants right in the middle of Europe is the proof that our migration policy is deficient. Read my proposals to avoid such tragedies in the future. https://t.co/mUlmID2qTD

  • Very emotional moment for me today at the Kigali Genocide Memorial. 18 years ago, I apologised here in the name of Belgium for our responsibility in the atrocities that happened nearly 25 years ago. We must never forget the victims & ensure such horrors will never happen again. https://t.co/w6W4ohy0zZ

  • On 7 April 1994, 10 Belgian soldiers were murdered in Kigali at the beginning of the Rwandan genocide. 18 years after inaugurating it, I came back to the Memorial that is dedicated to them. We will never forget them. https://t.co/XrT5Qsi3vQ

  • At the beginning of my career, I was very much a nerd of figures. The atrocities of 1994 made clear to me that the core of politics is not the numbers, but the ethical issues, the questions of identity, of multiculturalism, of peaceful coexistence with one another. #ALDEPAC https://t.co/K4zhYWFmOz

  • Rwanda will always have a special place in my mind and even more in my heart. The horrific events of 1994 have changed my view on the world, on politics, on life itself. #ALDEPAC https://t.co/OHwHDPbrFj
