19-03-2015 - 09:14

A delegation of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the European Parliament, chaired by Mr Elmar Brok, Chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, met on 18 March 2015 with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the President of the Republic of Turkey. The meeting took place in a very cordial and constructive atmosphere. The Members of the European Parliament and the President of the Republic discussed the complex security situation in the Middle East and the value of foreign policy dialogue and cooperation between the EU and Turkey. The EU and Turkey should also further cooperate on energy. This would reinforce both the EU and Turkey's energy security and diversity of energy sources. The EU and Turkey together can address the shortcomings of the Customs Union. The concerns of Turkey on the impact on its economy of FreeTrade Agreements concluded by the EU with third countries should also be addressed. Now that the Readmission Agreement between the EU and Turkey is in place, dialogue on visa liberalisation should advance. The delegation of the Committee on Foreign Affairs discussed the accession process and other issues of common interest between EU and Turkey. Mr Brok stressed the importance of developing EU-Turkey relations further and promoting constructive dialogue on issues of common concern.

Tervehdyssanat

AFET Chair

Tervetuloa Euroopan parlamentin ulkoasiainvaliokunnan verkkosivustolle. Valiokunnalla on tärkeä rooli unionin ulkoisen toiminnan suunnittelussa ja toteutuksessa. Valiokunta on mukana päättämässä siitä, miten unionin varoilla edistetään sen intressejä ja arvoja muualla maailmassa. Valiokunta myös valvoo laajentumisprosessia ja osallistuu näin unionin tulevan rakenteen määrittelyyn. Valiokunnan tuki tarvitaan kaikille kansainvälisille sopimuksille, joilla määritellään unionin kansainvälinen rooli. Tällaisia sopimuksia ovat erityisesti assosiaatio- ja puitesopimukset, joita unioni tekee lukuisten maailmanlaajuisten kumppanien kanssa. Lisäksi valiokunta seuraa tarkasti unionin toimielinten ja varsinkin komission ja ulkosuhdehallinnon toimintaa varmistaakseen, että yhteisessä ulkopolitiikassa huomioidaan aina ensisijaisesti unionin kansalaisten edut. Valiokunta on myös aktiivisesti mukana luomassa ja parantamassa suhteita unionin tärkeimpiin liittolaisiin. Tämä tapahtuu parlamentaarisen diplomatian kautta. Näiden pitkäaikaisten suhteiden avulla valiokunta voi edistää kansainvälisten pelisääntöjen laatimista ja varmistaa, että unionin lainsäädännön laadinnassa huolehditaan siitä, että se ei ole ristiriidassa maailmanlaajuisten sääntöjen kanssa.
