Elmar Brok with Syriac Patriarch of Damascus

Mr Brok and His Holiness concurred on the need to continue to provide humanitarian aid to communities affected by the tragic conflict in Syria and Iraq. The role of the Syriac Church in delivering aid both to Christian and Muslim communities was also recognised an praised. Mr Brok and His Holiness also discussed what context could be conducive to a political solution to the conflict in Syria and Iraq and the defeat of ISIS. The protection of the civilian population in Syrian and Iraq must be pursued as a priority. Christians are an important component of the Middle East and have lived in peace with other religious and ethnic communities for centuries. They should receive adequate support so that they can continue to live in the Middle East.

Brok and Plenković deplore “politically motivated” detention of Nadya Savchenko

26-02-2015 - 14:46

Elmar Brok (EPP, DE) and Andrej Plenković (EPP, HR), Chair of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee and Chair of the EP Delegation for Ukraine, called today for an immediate release of Ukrainian pilot and MP Nadya Savchenko by the Russian authorities. Her detention has no legal ground and can only be explained by political motivation, they said in a statement.

Elmar Brok and Andrej Plenković issued the following statement:

"Yesterday, a Moscow court rejected the appeal of Ms Nadya Savchenko challenging the decision to extend her pre-trial detention until 13 May. This decision is appalling, and can only be explained by political motivation since her detention has no legal ground whatsoever. It is also a contradiction to the spirit of the Minsk agreement.

It is now time for the Russian authorities to fully take their responsibility and deliver on their unconditional commitment to a peaceful settlement. Nadya Savchenko cannot be a bargaining chip in the hands of the Kremlin, and must be released without delay."

AFET Chair

Καλωσορίσατε στην ιστοσελίδα της Επιτροπής Εξωτερικών Υποθέσεων του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου, ενός βασικού φορέα χάραξης και εφαρμογής της εξωτερικής πολιτικής της ΕΕ. Εμείς αποφασίζουμε για τον τρόπο χρησιμοποίησης των ευρωπαϊκών κονδυλίων, προκειμένου να προωθηθούν στο εξωτερικό τα συμφέροντα και οι αξίες της ΕΕ, και, μέσω της εποπτείας που ασκούμε στη διαδικασία διεύρυνσης, καθορίζουμε τη μελλοντική διαμόρφωση της Ένωσης. Ζητείται η στήριξή μας για κάθε διεθνή συμφωνία που προσδιορίζει τον ρόλο της ΕΕ στον ευρύτερο κόσμο, ιδίως δε για τις συμφωνίες σύνδεσης και τις συμφωνίες-πλαίσια τις οποίες συνάπτει η Ένωση με το ευρύ φάσμα των παγκόσμιων εταίρων μας. Επιπλέον, η επιτροπή παρακολουθεί στενά τις επιδόσεις των άλλων θεσμικών οργάνων της ΕΕ, και ειδικότερα της Ευρωπαϊκής Επιτροπής και της Ευρωπαϊκής Υπηρεσίας Εξωτερικής Δράσης, προκειμένου να διασφαλίσει ότι τα συμφέροντα των λαών της Ευρώπης βρίσκονται πάντοτε στην πρώτη γραμμή της εξωτερικής μας πολιτικής. Συμμετέχουμε επίσης ενεργά στην εγκαθίδρυση και βελτίωση των σχέσεων με τους βασικούς μας συμμάχους διαμέσου της κοινοβουλευτικής δημοκρατίας.Μέσω των μακροχρόνιων αυτών σχέσεων, συμβάλλουμε στην ανάπτυξη παγκόσμιων προτύπων και κανόνων και διασφαλίζουμε ότι η νομοθεσία της ΕΕ διαμορφώνεται κατά τρόπο που της επιτρέπει την καλή ενσωμάτωσή της στην παγκόσμια τάξη.
