10 July 2018
E-002416/18P-002768/18
Joint answer given by President Juncker on behalf of the Commission
Written questions: E-002416/18 , P-002768/18

The Commission would refer the Honourable Members to its answer to the Written Question E-000486/2018. After decades of experience in politics at national and European level, there is not a shred of doubt about where President Juncker stands when it comes to totalitarian ideologies, totalitarian regimes and their horrible consequences.

For all his life President Juncker demonstrated an unwavering rejection of any totalitarian ideology insisting however that remembering, debating and understanding history is indispensable to shape our future.

As an honorary citizen of Trier, President Juncker was invited by Malu Dreyer, Minister-President of Rhineland-Palatinate, to attend the opening ceremony of the Karl Marx exhibition.

Regarding the Marx statue revealed in Trier, President Juncker did not participate in this event which took place after his departure.
