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 )


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 )


The European Parliament called for an immediate end to rocket attacks on Israel and to Israeli military action against Gaza in a resolution voted on Thursday The EU foreign policy chief and the member states must do more to support a ceasefire agreement and put an immediate stop to all acts of violence threatening civilians, MEPs said, calling on Israelis and Palestinians to resume direct peace talks. (Read more: Gaza: MEPs call for immediate ceasefire and resumption of direct peace talks )

Persmededelingen (deel 2)

Attacks by the Islamic State (IS) on the Iraqi state and its citizens, including summary executions and the imposition of harsh interpretations of Sharia law, were strongly condemned in a European Parliament resolution passed by a show of hands on Thursday. At the same time, the resolution urges the Iraqi security forces to respect Iraq's international commitments on human rights and fundamental freedoms while fighting the IS and other terrorist groups. (Read more: Iraq: MEPs reject jihadist terrorism and call for sustainable political solution )


Er zijn hardere maatregelen nodig om werkloosheid onder jonge mensen te bestrijden, stelde het Parlement op donderdag. In een resolutie - aangenomen met 502 stemmen voor, 112 tegen en 22 onthoudingen - wordt onder meer aangedrongen op minimumnormen voor stages en fatsoenlijk loon. Daarnaast moet in toekomstige EU-begrotingen meer financiering worden vrijgespeeld voor werkgelegenheid-gerelateerde programma’s. (Lees meer: EP: fatsoenlijke baan voor 5,3 miljoen jonge mensen )


Rusland moet het vredesplan van Oekraïne steunen, het staakt-het-vuren respecteren en zijn huurlingen terugtrekken, zo stelt het EP in een donderdag aangenomen resolutie. Ze roepen EU-landen op de wapenverkoop aan Rusland te verbieden en Oekraïne te helpen de gastoevoer veilig te stellen via omgekeerde gasstromen. Het EP is bereid het associatie- en vrijhandelsverdrag met Oekraïne te ratificeren. (Lees meer: EP wil dat Rusland meewerkt aan vredesplan Oekraïne )


Parliament passed three separate resolutions on Thursday, calling on the Sudanese authorities to protect minorities' religious identities, expressing its alarm at the increasingly severe clampdown and physical attacks on media and civil society in Egypt, and calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Chibok schoolgirls in Nigeria. (Read more: Human rights: Sudan; freedom of expression in Egypt, recent attacks in Nigeria )


Volgende week worden in Rome de drie finalisten bekendgemaakt van de LUX-prijs 2014. De Grieks-Frans-Belgische productie Xenia behoort tot de 10 genomineerden. De uiteindelijke winnaar is in het najaar gekend. Vorig jaar was het de alom gelauwerde The Broken Circle Breakdown van Felix Van Groeningen die met de eerste prijs ging lopen. Vorige week nog won de prent van Van Groeningen de LUX-publieksprijs, gevolg van een Facebook-wedstrijd in heel Europa. (Lees meer: LUX-prijs 2014: weer een Belgische film bij de winnaars ? )


The EU must stop rolling over its growing portfolio of unpaid bills from one year to the next, said MEPs in Wednesday’s debate on the alarming shortage of funds for payments due in 2014. Unless a satisfactory solution is found, programmes such as Erasmus+, research projects and humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees will get stuck, new ones will be grounded and beneficiaries will have to wait for money they worked for, warned the Commission and many MEPs. (Read more: Budget problems: EU programmes in jeopardy again )
