EP-Voorzitter Martin Schulz zei gisteren dat de Europese instellingen “een beroep doen op het Griekse volk om ‘ja’ te stemmen voor de voorstellen van de instellingen". Sprekend na de aankondiging van een referendum in Griekenland over de voorstellen voor verdere economische steun door de EU, liet Schulz weten dat dit "een handreiking aan het Griekse volk is". Hij voegde eraan toe dat het resultaat van het referendum "fundamenteel is" wat betreft de positie van Griekenland in de eurozone. (Lees meer: Voorzitter Schulz over voorstellen EU: "Een handreiking aan het Griekse volk" )

 

De ramp met het vliegtuig van Germanwings in maart wierp vragen op over de veiligheid van de luchtvaart nadat de onderzoekers ontdekten dat de copiloot het vliegtuig opzettelijk had laten neerstorten. Op 29 juni besprak de vervoerscommissie hoe kan worden voorkomen dat zoiets opnieuw gebeurt, met de Europese Commissie en Patrick Ky, uitvoerend directeur van het Europees Agentschap voor de Veiligheid van de Luchtvaart (EASA). Zij bespraken verder de aanbevelingen van een EASA-task force. (Lees meer: Onderzoek naar veiligheid luchtvaart in de EU )

 

An informal deal to ban surcharges ("roaming fees") for making mobile phone calls, sending text messages or using the internet while abroad in another EU country from 15 June 2017 was struck by MEPs and EU ministers in the small hours of Tuesday morning. MEPs also inserted guarantees that all internet traffic is treated equally, without discrimination. To enter into force, this informal deal needs to be formally endorsed by the full Parliament and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: Cheaper mobile calls and open internet: MEPs and ministers strike informal deal )

 

International Trade Committee MEPs on Monday paved the way for a plenary vote on the European Parliament’s draft recommendations for Transatlantic Trade and investment partnership (TTIP) negotiators, by retabling the June plenary amendments which had been referred back for reconsideration. The committee took the decision in two separate votes –one to retable the plenary amendments, and the other to retable requests for split or separate votes.

De Chinese premier, Li Keqiang bracht vandaag een bezoek aan het Europees Parlement in Brussel, waar hij werd verwelkomd door EP-Voorzitter Martin Schulz.

In een week waarin Griekenland aan de rand van een faillissement staat en Luxemburg het voorzitterschap van de Raad overneemt, stemmen de leden over de amendementen met betrekking tot de onderhandelingen over het vrijhandelsverdrag EU-VS. Zij bespreken ook plannen van de Europese Commissie over vennootschapsbelasting. In de commissies staan verder de lessen die geleerd kunnen worden uit het neerstorten van het vliegtuig van Germanwings en de aanpak van haat zaaien op de agenda. (Lees meer: Deze week: Griekenland, vennootschapsbelasting, TTIP en veiligheid luchtvaart )

 

The European Commission’s weak response to the first EU citizens’ initiative (ECI) petition, on the “Right2Water”, could discredit the ECI system, warn Environment Committee MEPs in a resolution voted on Wednesday. It “lacks any real ambition and failed to meet the demands of the organizers”, they add. ECIs enable citizens to ask the Commission to propose laws in areas within its competence, if they can muster at least one million signatures from at least a quarter of EU member states. (Read more: Right2water citizens’ initiative: Commission must act, say MEPs )

 

EP-voorzitter Martin Schulz hoopt dat een akkoord over Griekenland spoedig wordt bereikt, zodat het land in de eurozone kan blijven. Sprekend bij de start van de Europese Raad op 25 juni, zei hij: “Wij moeten de risico’s zorgvuldig afwegen en het pad kiezen wat de minste kans geeft de burgers aansprakelijk te maken voor een crisis die zij hebben niet veroorzaakt." Hij zei ook dat een akkoord de weg moet effenen voor de verbetering van de houdbaarheid van de Griekse schuld. (Lees meer: Schulz over Griekenland: "We moeten de risico’s voorzichtig afwegen" )
