Welcome message

Welcome to the website of the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly.

I am Javi López, Member of the European Parliament and, since September 2019, President of the European component of the Assembly.

Building on our long-standing parliamentary relationship and underpinned by common interests and values, political dialogue between the European Union and Latin America has become even more relevant in recent years against a backdrop of competition between great powers. Through our work, we hope to continue to forge ever-closer relations in the political, trade and cultural spheres.

Europe and Latin America face shared challenges such as defending, throughout the world, a dialogue- and rules-based multilateral order, ensuring truly inclusive economic growth able to reduce inequalities, combating climate change - an existential threat to our way of life - achieving the Sustainable Development Objectives, the ongoing battle for effective gender equality, creating a fair form of globalisation, institution-building and strengthening democratic guarantees.

In the EuroLat Assembly, the 75 Members of the European Parliament work alongside the 75 Latin American Members from the regional parliaments to provide a parliamentary dimension to the EU-LAC Bi-regional Strategic Partnership and to debate, monitor and review each of these issues and other questions relevant to citizens in the European Union and Latin America and the Caribbean.

I am honoured and proud to work with partners on both sides of the Atlantic who are committed to striving for ever-closer bi-regional relations and to completing the vital task of transforming the friendship between our continents into a true alliance.

Javi López

President

Joint statement on the illegal storming of democratic institutions in Brazil

Lead MEPs condemn Sunday's violent storming of the Congress, the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court of Justice in Brasilia by supporters of former president Jair Bolsonaro.

Chair of the EP Foreign Affairs Committee David McAllister (EPP, DE), Chair of the Delegation to the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly Javi López (S&D, ES), Chair of the Delegation for relations with the Federative Republic of Brazil José Manuel Fernandes (EPP, PT) and Chair of the Delegation for relations with Mercosur Jordi Cañas (Renew, ES), stated:

"We strongly condemn yesterday's violent and illegal storming of the Congress, the Presidential Palace and the Supreme Court of Justice in Brasilia by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro. This was an inacceptable and heinous attack on the heart of Brazilian democracy, whose perpetrators and instigators must be punished with the full force of the law.

We express our full solidarity with the Brazilian Congress, the government of President Lula da Silva and all other democratic institutions in Brazil. It is one of the fundamental principles of democracies that results of fair and transparent elections must be respected, and any attempt to overturn them through violent acts must be firmly rejected. We are concerned about the increasing acts of political violence by extremist supporters of Brazil's former president, which directly promote speeches and actions that move to confrontation, hatred, radicalization and even crime. We call on all parties to do everything possible to overcome this dangerous situation and urgently adopt measures to prevent these acts from happening again while bringing those responsible to justice."
