Debates on migration summits, Burundi, Georgia and Moldova with Ms Mogherini

25-11-2015 - 11:00

Terrorism, climate change, economic growth and migration, which dominated the 15-16 November G20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, will take centre stage in a debate with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and Nicolas Schmit, representing the Council Presidency, on Wednesday from 16.00. MEPs will also react to the joint action plan to ease migration pressure, agreed by EU and African leaders at the 11-12 November Valletta summit.


Later in the afternoon, MEPs will also debate the mounting insecurity, continuous violence and human rights violations in Burundi with the EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. In subsequent debates, MEPs will assess the recent elections in Myanmar, the tense political situation in Georgia and political instability in Moldova following the government’s recent dismissal.

A resolution on the situation in Burundi is to be voted at the December plenary session.

You can watch the debate in plenary on EP Live and EbS+.

Il-President Martin Schulz ħabbar li Mustang rebaħ il-Premju LUX tal-Parlament Ewropew għaċ-ċinema waqt ċerimonja fi Strasbourg nhar it-Tlieta. Mustang hija storja ta’ ħamest aħwa bniet li jiġu mwiegħda lil żwieġhom bi żwiġijiet sfurzati, iżda li b’determinazzjoni li jgħixu ħajjithom jirnexxielhom jiksru l-madmad tat-tradizzjoni.

Buying insurance will be made easier and safer following Parliament's vote on Tuesday tightening EU rules on the information and advice provided by insurance sales staff. The current rules on sales of insurance have been amended to introduce similar information and consumer protection requirements for all insurance distribution channels unless they meet the conditions for exemption. (Read more: EP backs deal on better information, advice and protection for insurance buyers )


The EU’s Frontex border agency should set up a mechanism to process individual complaints about alleged breaches of the fundamental rights of migrants and asylum seekers, say MEPs in a joint resolution voted by the Civil Liberties and Petitions committees on Monday. MEPs want the the European Commission to include provisions for this mechanism in a review of the Frontex regulation, due in December. (Read more: Make it easier for migrants to complain about Frontex border guards, MEP say )


“Those who fail to reconcile freedom and security fail in everything”, said President Schulz, citing the credo of late German statesman Helmut Schmidt, whose funeral he had just attended. “Security has to be organised, but we must not let our freedom be curtailed by those who want to scare us”. The brutal attacks on France ten days ago targeted Parliament’s values too. MEPs held a minute’s silence for terror victims everywhere, including Mali, Syria and Iraq. (Read more: Opening: “Those who fail to reconcile freedom and security fail in everything” )

The urgent need to step up information-sharing among EU member states and between them and Europol to fight terrorism, the work on the Passenger Name Records data (EU PNR) proposal and the de-radicalisation of EU citizens joining terrorist organisations were among the topics discussed by MEPs with Europol chief Rob Wainwright and Council and Commission representatives on Thursday. (Read more: Terrorist attacks: MEPs demand more information-sharing and coordination in EU )


MEPs called on Wednesday for more focus on migration and security and more flexibility in the revised European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), after foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and neighbourhood policy Commissioner Johannes Hahn presented their proposals for a new ENP to the foreign affairs committee. (Read more: Revised EU Neighbourhood Policy must focus on security and migration, say MEPs )


Harmonised EU entry and residence rules that will make it easier and more attractive for students and researchers from third countries to study or do research at EU universities were informally agreed by MEPs and ministers on Tuesday. The deal also has provisions to clarify and improve conditions for non-EU interns, volunteers, school pupils and au pairs, so as to facilitate cultural exchanges. These rules still need to be approved by Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: Deal on new rules to attract non-EU students, researchers and interns to the EU )


MEPs grilled eleven multinational companies on their corporate tax practices in a five-hour debate with the Special Committee on Tax Rulings on Monday. These companies had declined the committee’s first invitation to appear before it, but later changed their minds and accepted its last chance invitation. Of the 13 original invitees, only Fiat Chrysler and Walmart declined the final invitation. The meeting started with a minute of silence for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks. (Read more: Tough debate with multinational companies on corporate tax practices )


The European Union is deeply shocked and in mourning after the terrorist attacks in Paris. It is an attack against us all. We will face this threat together with all necessary means and ruthless determination. (Read more: Joint statement on the terrorist attacks in Paris )


On behalf of the European Parliament, I condemn in the clearest and strongest terms the heinous terrorist attacks which killed and wounded so many people in Paris yesterday. At this terrible moment our thoughts and sympathy are with the families and friends of the victims, together with the French authorities and with all French citizens. I have also expressed my condolences to President Hollande. (Read more: Schulz condemns the Paris terrorist attacks )
