Eurojust-Denmark Agreement on judicial cooperation in criminal matters (A8-0192/2019 - Claude Moraes) EL  
 

Η έκθεση σχετικά με το σχέδιο εκτελεστικής απόφασης του Συμβουλίου για την έγκριση της σύναψης συμφωνίας συνεργασίας σε ποινικές υποθέσεις μεταξύ της Eurojust και του Βασιλείου της Δανίας αποτελεί ένα ακόμη βήμα καλύτερης συνεργασίας σε πανευρωπαϊκό επίπεδο, με στόχο την προστασία των δικαιωμάτων και των συμφερόντων κρατών μελών και πολιτών. Γι’ αυτό και ψήφισα θετικά.

European Defence Fund (A8-0412/2018 - Zdzisław Krasnodębski) EL  
 

Ψηφίσαμε ως προς την έκθεση σχετικά με την πρόταση κανονισμού του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου και του Συμβουλίου για τη σύσταση του Ευρωπαϊκού Ταμείου Άμυνας. Θεωρώ απολύτως αναγκαία την ύπαρξη μηχανισμών που σχετίζονται με την άμυνα των ευρωπαϊκών κρατών, τα οποία συχνά έρχονται αντιμέτωπα με προκλητικές και επεκτατικές πολιτικές τρίτων κρατών, όπως —ιδίως— της Τουρκίας. Γι’ αυτό και ψήφισα θετικά.

European Border and Coast Guard (A8-0076/2019 - Roberta Metsola) EL  
 

Ψηφίσαμε ως προς την έκθεση σχετικά με την πρόταση κανονισμού του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου και του Συμβουλίου για την Ευρωπαϊκή Συνοριοφυλακή και Ακτοφυλακή. Ιδιαίτερα μετά τα προβλήματα που προέκυψαν από το προσφυγικό ζήτημα και τις δυσκολίες που αντιμετωπίζουν οι χώρες του ευρωπαϊκού νότου, καλούμαστε να συνεργαστούμε ώστε σε πανευρωπαϊκό επίπεδο να έχουμε τις απαραίτητες λύσεις, κάτι που έχουν ανάγκη εκατομμύρια πολίτες. Γι’ αυτό και ψήφισα θετικά.
