Kamra tal-aħbarijiet

Aliki, l-istudenta Griega, Trish l-intraprenditriċi Irlandiża u ż-żewġ disinjaturi Daniżi, Jens u Sedsel, kienu fost l-uċuħ tal-kampanja ta’ informazzjoni elettorali tal-PE ta’ qabel l-elezzjonijiet Ewropej. Huma qasmu magħna l-opinjonijiet tagħhom dwar xi tfisser l-UE għalihom u għalxiex huwa importanti li wieħed imur jivvota fl-elezzjonijiet. Dawn huma l-istejjer tagħhom.

Eżattament 100 sena ilu, l-imperu ta’ l-Awstrija-Ungerija ddikjara gwerra fuq is-Serbja, gwerra li fi ftit żmien infirxet mal-Ewropa u d-dinja kollha, u saret magħrufa bħala l-Gwerra l-Kbira. F’diskors li ta qabel dan l-anniversarju mimli dieqa l-President tal-PE Martin Schulz qal: “L-aħjar mod ta’ kif nistgħu nonoraw dawk li ġġieldu u mietu f’din il-gwerra, hu billi niftakru l-lezzjoni li ħadna minn din l-esperjenza.” (Aqra iktar dwar dan: “28 ta’ Lulju 1914, il-ġurnata meta kriżi iżolata nbidlet fi gwerra globali” )

 

L-Unjoni Ewropea timporta aktar minn nofs l-enerġija li tikkonsma. Dan jista’ jagħmilha vulnerabbli għall-fornituri tal-enerġija esterni bħar-Russja. Għaldaqstant il-Kummissjoni Ewropea ppreżentat pjan dwar kif tista’ titnaqqas din id-dipendenza. Matul din il-ġimgħa dan il-pjan kien jinstab fuq l-aġenda tal-Kumitat Parlamentari għall-Industrija. Informa ruħek permezz ta’ dan l-artiklu u l-mappa interattiva dwar il-fatti u l-figuri tas-settur tal-enerġija fl-UE. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: (In)Dipendenza: Fatti u figuri dwar is-settur tal-enerġija fl-UE )

 

Il-ġimgħa li għaddiet ntemmet s-sitt sessjoni ta’ laqgħat ta’ negozjati bejn l-UE u l-Istati Uniti dwar is-Sħubija ta’ Kummerċ u l-Investiment Transatlantiku (TTIP). Il-Parlament se jibqa’ jaħdem u jsegwi din il-kwistjoni sa minn tal-anqas sal-aħħar tal-2015. Tkellimna dwar dan u dwar l-isfidi li qed naffaċċjaw mal-President tal-Kumitat għall-Kummerċ Internazzjonali Bernd Lange (S&D, DE). (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Bernd Lange fuq t-TTIP: “Finalment il-Parlament jiddeċiedi fuq il-ftehim” )

Fl-1 ta’ Lulju kien imiss lill-Italja sabiex tieħu f’idejha l-Presidenza tal-Kunsill wara li għall-ewwel sit xhur tas-sena din kienet f’idejn il-Greċja. Fid-diskors tiegħu waqt l-ewwel sessjoni tal-Plenarja wara l-elezzjonijiet Ewropej, il-Prim Ministru Taljan Matteo Renzi saħaq li l-Ewropa għandha taġixxi b’konvinzjoni u b’determinazzjoni. (Aqra iktar dwar dan: Il-Presidenza Taljana tal-Kunsill: Aspettattivi u prijoritajiet )

 

The priorities of the Italian Council Presidency are being outlined to the various parliamentary committees by Italian ministers, on 22 and 23 July. This text will be updated daily. (Read more: Italian Presidency priorities discussed by EP committees )

 

MEPs quizzed trade Commissioner Karel de Gucht MEPs on the US position in transatlantic trade and investment partnership (TTIP) talks and the findings of the EU Commission’s public consultation on TTIP proposals on investor-state dispute settlement mechanisms. Some wondered about fate of a proposed trade deal with Canada, which has been described as „to be signed soon" for a year already, and asked that Parliament be given more access to trade talks documents. (Read more: MEPs discuss EU trade policy with Commissioner Karel de Gucht )

 

EU sanctions against Russia must be stepped up, the Ukrainian border closed to halt arms flows from Russia, and the bodies of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash victims returned, MEPs insisted in today’s debate with Ukraine’s foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin. Mr Klimkin called on the EU to show its solidarity now, as Ukraine is “being punished for its EU aspirations”. The debate opened with a minute’s silence for victims of the 17 July crash. (Read more: MH17 crash: MEPs call for solidarity with Ukraine and sanctions against Russia )

 

Din il-ġimgħa (mil-21 sal-24 ta’ Lulju 2014) hija l-ġimgħa ddedikata għal-laqgħat tal-kumitati. Il-Kummissarju Karel De Gucht se jippreżenta fil-kumitat għall-Kummerċ Internazzjonali l-progress li sar fin-negozjati tas-sħubija transatlantika għall-kummerċ u l-investiment (TTIP). Barra minn hekk, bosta kumitati oħra se jiddiskutu l-prijoritajiet tal-Presidenza l-ġdida Taljana flimkien mal-ministri rispettivi Taljani.
