  Soraya Post (S&D). – Mr President, the EU is collectively the second largest arms supplier in the world. This is the reality, even if we know that disarmament is an imperative for human rights and human security. Also, Goal 16 in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) states that peace, stability and human rights are deeply connected to sustainable development.

We must control the weapons in the world, but most of all, we must act for a complete and global disarmament. We have to change the global agenda on security. The first priority must be to make every individual secure in their daily life. This is security – human security. We, the EU, should not supply the world with arms. Our moral and human duty is to supply the world with peace. I am a proud pacifist.
