Euroopan parlamentti hyväksyi torstaina EU:n laajuiset terrorismin torjuntaa koskevat säännöt, joilla pyritään vastaamaan uhkiin, joita nousee konfliktialueille terrorismiaikeissa matkustavien vierastaistelijoiden ja iskuja suunnittelevien ”yksinäisten susien” myötä. (Lue lisää: Terrorismin torjunta: säännöt vierastaistelijoita ja "yksinäisiä susia" vastaan )


Euroopan parlamentti hyväksyi torstaina päätöslauselman, jossa se vaatii EU:n laajuisia robotiikkaa koskevia sääntöjä. Parlamentti korostaa päätöslauselmassaan, että nopeasti kehittyvälle alalle tarvitaan yhteisiä sääntöjä vahvistamaan eettisiä periaatteita (Lue lisää: Robotiikka ja tekoäly: Parlamentti vaatii EU:n laajuisia sääntöjä )


Mikäli EU haluaa vahvistaa toimintakykyäänsä, palauttaa kansalaisten luottamuksen ja vahvistaa euroaluetta ulkopuolisten iskujen varalta, EU:n on otettava Lissabonin sopimus täysimääräisesti käyttöön, Euroopan parlamentti korostaa päätöslauselmassaan. Jos halutaan mennä pidemmälle, tarvitaan perusteellisempia uudistuksia. Euroopan parlamentti hyväksyi torstaina kolme päätöslauselmaa, joissa se ottaa kantaa EU:n tulevaisuuteen. (Lue lisää: Euroopan parlamentti esitteli näkemyksensä EU:n tulevaisuudesta )

Low-risk biological pesticides, including those made from bio-organisms, pheromones or essential oils, could replace conventional ones that are suspected of harming the environment and human health. MEPs wonder why some member states hesitate or refuse to approve them and want the EU Commission to propose a revision of the rules to accelerate the approval process. (Read more: MEPs call for fast-track approval of low-risk pesticides )


Plans to boost greenhouse-gas emission curbs through the EU carbon market (EU ETS), so as to bring EU climate policy into line with the aims of the Paris agreement, were backed by Parliament on Wednesday. MEPs supported the Commission proposal to reduce the number of “carbon credits” (emission allowances) by 2.2% each year, and want to double the capacity of the 2019 market stability reserve (MSR) to absorb the excess of allowances on the market. (Read more: MEPs back plans to cut carbon emission allowances and fund low-carbon innovation )


Albania should step up the pace of judicial reform, as a key to starting EU accession negotiations, while Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) needs to overcome its ethnic and political divisions and remain united throughout the EU membership application evaluation process, said MEPs on Wednesday.

(Lue lisää: CETA: Parlamentti tukee EU:n ja Kanadan välistä kauppasopimusta )
