Euroopan parlamentti kokoontuu täysistuntoon

 

Euroopan parlamentin jäsenet pitävät EU:n ja Ukrainan sopimusta ja muita askeleita kohti rauhaa myönteisinä merkkeinä. Parlamentin jäsenet toteavat torstaina hyväksymässään päätöslauselmassa olevansa kuitenkin huolissaan Venäjän Ukrainaa vastaan käymästä "hybridisodasta", jota ei ole virallisesti julistettu. Mepit kehottavat EU:ta pysymään yhtenäisenä ja tehostamaan toimia maataloustuotteiden tuontikiellosta kärsivien viljelijöiden tukemiseksi. (Lue lisää: Parlamentin jäsenet: toivon merkkejä Ukrainasta, EU:n pysyttävä yhtenäisenä )

 

Euroopan parlamentti tuomitsee jyrkästi Islamilainen valtio –järjestön (IS) tekemät kahden toimittajan, James Foleyn ja Steven Sotloffin, sekä avustustyöntekijä David Hainesin murhat torstaina hyväksymässään päätöslauselmassa. EU:n on avustettava kaikin keinoin, myös tarkoituksenmukaisen sotilaallisen avun muodossa, Irakin valtiollisia ja paikallisia viranomaisia niiden toimissa IS-järjestöä vastaan, päätöslauselmassa todetaan. (Lue lisää: Mepit Islamilaisesta valtiosta: toimia väkivallan lopettamiseksi tehostettava )

 

The candidate commissioners as presented by incoming Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, will be scrutinised by the European Parliament committees from 29 September to 7 October. Members will evaluate candidates' suitability before the full house votes on the proposed Commission. The leaders of the political groups have agreed on Thursday on the format and programme for the public hearings. (Read more: Public hearings of commissioners-candidate: format and schedule )

 

The EU must step up its involvement in supporting Libya’s stability and transition to democracy, said the European Parliament in a vote on Thursday. MEPs condemned the growing use of violence there, especially against civilians, and called for a ceasefire between the fighting factions. They also said humanitarian assistance, the safety of civilians and the security of humanitarian personnel must be ensured by all parties in the conflict.

Kansainvälinen yhteisö on aliarvioinut Ebola-epidemian vakavuuden, ja Ebolasta on nyt tullut globaali turvallisuushaaste, parlamentin jäsenet toteavat torstaina hyväksymässään päätöslauselmassa. Ebolan taloudellisista ja yhteiskunnallisista seurauksista johtuen parlamentin jäsenet pyytävät harkitsemaan YK:n alaisten puolustusvoimavarojen käyttöä. (Lue lisää: Euroopan parlamentti: Länsi-Afrikan Ebola-epidemia globaali turvallisuushaaste )

 

The European Parliament called on Azerbaijan to proceed with human rights reforms, Burundi to release human rights campaigner Pierre Claver Mbonimpa, and Bangladesh to apply international labour standards, in three resolutions voted on Thursday. (Read more: Human rights: Azerbaijan; the case of Mbonimpa in Burundi; Bangladesh )

 

Euroopan parlamentin täysistunnossa keskustellaan keskiviikkona iltapäivällä Lähi-idän konflikteista. Parlamentin turvallisuus- ja puolustuspoliittisen valiokunnan puheenjohtaja Anna Fotyga (ECR, Puola) kertoi aiheesta ja siitä, miten uudeksi EU:n ulko- ja turvallisuuspolitiikan korkeaksi edustajaksi ehdolla olevan Federica Mogherinin kuuleminen tulee olemaan haastava. (Lue lisää: Fotyga: Länsimaita kohtaan käydään epätavanomaista sotaa kaikilta suunnilta )

 

Vuosina 2007-2013 Euroopan globalisaatiorahastosta myönnettiin 400 miljoonaa euroa globalisaation tai talouskriisin seurauksena työttömiksi joutuneiden kymmenien tuhansien työntekijöiden uudelleenkoulutukseen, työnhakuun tai uuden yrityksen perustamiseen. Parlamentti hyväksyi uuden tukipaketin Espanjalle, Alankomaille, Romanialle sekä Kreikalle keskiviikkona 17.9.2014. (Lue lisää: Globalisaatiorahasto: Lukuja ja faktoja )

 

EU member states need to make more efficient use of €6 billon in EU funds to ease the transition from education to jobs for young people and foster entrepreneurship, urged MEPs in Wednesday's debate on the European Youth Initiative. Some advocated simplifying funding procedures, sharing best practices, and promoting apprenticeships, whilst others urged member states to do more to exploit the job-creating potential of new energy-saving and green technologies. (Read more: Getting the European Youth Initiative to deliver jobs )

 

EU aid to help workers made redundant in various industries in Spain, The Netherlands, Romania and Greece to find new jobs was approved by the European Parliament on Wednesday. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) funding, which would complement national efforts, now needs to be approved by the Council of Ministers.
