The EU needs a better coordinated policy on volunteering, to give volunteers a proper legal status and help them join programmes, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. Almost 100 million EU citizens have taken part as volunteers in education, culture or arts, sport events, humanitarian and development aid work. Young people should take advantage of volunteering schemes to develop skills and acquire experience that helps them to find jobs afterwards, stresses the text.

Worsening relations between nuclear-armed states, such as Russia and the US or India and Pakistan, but also Russia’s threats to use nuclear weapons or to deploy them to more territories in Europe, are making the EU’s security environment ever more tense, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. They call on these states to reduce nuclear weapons, move them away from deployment into storage and to diminish their role in military doctrines. (Read more: MEPs sound wake-up call on nuclear threats )


"Release journalists being held without compelling evidence of criminal activity", MEPs urge the Turkish authorities in a resolution voted on Thursday. Since the failed coup d’état on 15 July, the Turkish government has arrested at least 99 journalists and writers, revoked the press credentials of at least 330 journalists, and closed the offices of more than 100 media outlets, leaving over 2,300 media workers without jobs.

The Iraqi operation to liberate Mosul from jihadi group ISIS/Daesh was backed by MEPs on Thursday. They called on Iraqi authorities to make every effort to protect civilians, hospitals and schools, as they progress towards Mosul. Daesh atrocities and genocide against Christians, Yazidis and other minorities should be referred to International Criminal Court, added MEPs. (Read more: MEPs back operation to liberate Mosul )


EU bör införa obligatoriska gränser för mängden industriella transfettsyror som tillåts i livsmedel. Det skriver ledamöterna i en resolution som kammaren antog på onsdagen. Ett för stort intag av transfetter kan leda till ökade risker för hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar, infertilitet, Alzheimers sjukdom, diabetes och fetma hos konsumenterna, enligt texten. Den största mängden transfetter intas genom konsumtionen av härdade oljor. (Läs mer: Skärpta kontroller av industriella transfetter i livsmedel )


På onsdagen antog parlamentet sin ståndpunkt till EU:s budget för 2017. Ledamöterna kräver också mer pengar, bland annat för att hjälpa fler ungdomar inom unionen att skaffa sig ett jobb, för att skjuta på den ekonomiska tillväxten, samt för att hjälpa tredjeländer som kämpar med den pågående flyktingkrisen. Parlamentet röstade också för att minska de nedskärningar som rådet vill se i budgeten. (Läs mer: Parlamentet vill ha mer pengar till ungdomar och jobb under 2017 )


The threats, violations and restrictions faced by journalists in Turkey will be debated with Commissioner Corina Creţu, representing EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, late on Wednesday afternoon. Since the 15 July failed coup d’état, which left 241 people dead and thousands injured, 90 journalists have been jailed, more than 2,500 have lost their jobs and arrest warrants have been issued against hundreds of media workers in the country. (Read more: Press freedom in Turkey up for a debate late on Wednesday afternoon )


New rules to curb the growing influx into the EU of plant pests, such as olive grove killer Xylella fastidiosa, and better equip member states to tackle their spread, were endorsed by the Parliament on Wednesday. The new regulation introduces preventive and rapid response mechanisms for suspect plant imports, steps up pest surveillance efforts in the EU and requires all member states to draw up outbreak contingency plans. (Read more: Plant health: MEPs step up fight against influx of pests to the EU )


Parliament backs the EU Commission case for investing in innovation, growth and job creation, pursuing socially-balanced structural reforms, and encouraging responsible public finances, in a resolution on EU economic priorities for 2017, voted on Wednesday.
