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.

Euroopan parlamentti hyväksyi torstaina päätöslauselman, jossa se vaatii EU:n laajuisia robotiikkaa koskevia 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 )

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 )
