De keuze van het Britse volk bij het EU referendum "moet zo snel mogelijk worden uitgevoerd" met volledige betrokkenheid van het Parlement, zei EP-Voorzitter Martin Schulz op 28 juni bij de EU-top in Brussel naar aanleiding van het Britse referendum. "Een periode van aanhoudende onzekerheid zou in niemands belang zijn", voegde hij eraan toe. Hij zei ook dat de Unie zelf moet aantonen dat zij weet dat hervormingen nodig zijn. (Lees meer: EP-voorzitter Schulz over Brexit: "Aanhoudende onzekerheid in niemands belang" )

 

Tijdens de opening van de buitengewone vergadering van het Europees Parlement wees Voorzitter Martin Schulz erop dat het de eerste keer was dat het Parlement op zo'n korte termijn bijeen werd geroepen, maar dat het besluit van de Britse bevolking om de EU te verlaten dan ook ongekend was. Hij heette Lord Jonathan Hill hartelijk welkom en bedankte hem voor zijn inspanningen als eurocommissaris. Zijn verklaring mocht rekenen op een staande ovatie van zowel EP-leden als collega-commissarissen. (Lees meer: Levendig debat over Brexit en de consequenties ervan )

 

Het Verenigd Koninkrijk (VK) moet de wens van een meerderheid van de Britten volledig en zo spoedig mogelijk respecteren door officieel uit de EU te treden alvorens er sprake kan zijn van nieuwe samenwerkingsarrangementen, zo stelt het Europees Parlement in een resolutie die dinsdag tijdens een buitengewone plenaire vergadering werd aangenomen. EP-leden benadrukken de dringende noodzaak voor hervormingen die zij nodig achten om te kunnen voldoen aan de verwachtingen van de EU-burgers. (Lees meer: EP: snelle Brexit om eind te maken aan onzekerheid en dringt aan op hervormingen )

 

Het Britse referendum en de gevolgen daarvan worden tijdens een buitengewone plenaire vergadering in Brussel op dinsdag 28 juni besproken.

A new standard European travel document to speed the return of non-EU nationals staying "irregularly" in EU member states without valid passports or identity cards was informally agreed by MEPs and EU ministers on Thursday evening. A key goal during the talks has been to increase third countries’ acceptance of the document through improved technical details. To enter into force, this informal deal needs to be formally endorsed by the full Parliament and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: European travel document: MEPs and ministers strike informal deal )

 

The EU's renewable energy target - 20% of total consumption by 2020 - has already been hit by many EU member states. But others lag behind and must do more, MEPs urge in a resolution, voted on Thursday, on the EU Commission's “renewables progress report." To achieve the EU's energy efficiency target - a 20% gain by 2020 – member states need to implement EU legislation faster, and in full, says a second resolution, also voted on Thursday. (Read more: MEPs call for more ambitious and consumer-focused energy targets beyond 2020 )

 

EP-leden roepen de strijdende partijen in Noordoost Congo op het geweld te stoppen, de wapens neer te leggen, alle kinderen uit hun midden vrij te laten en de dialoog aan te gaan om een vreedzame oplossing voor het conflict te zoeken.
