Question for written answer E-006512-15
to the Commission
Rule 130
Teresa Jiménez-Becerril Barrio (PPE)

 Subject:  Humanitarian aid for Christians in the Middle East
 Answer in writing 

The persecution being suffered by Christians in the Middle East is gradually bringing about their disappearance from the region. On 27 March, at the instigation of the French presidency, the United Nations Security Council debated the uncertain future facing Christians in the Middle East. A form of action plan was put forward which included humanitarian aid as one of its pillars. This aid would focus not only on providing help for refugees and internally displaced persons, but also on creating the conditions required to enable them to return home.

What is the Commission’s view of this initiative? Is the Commission preparing any response in support of the initiative?

According to some sources, Christians are not receiving international humanitarian aid in the refugee camps simply because they are Christians. What information does the Commission have on this issue? What is being done to ensure that the aid reaches Christian refugees?
