Security challenges in the MENA region/prospects for political stability, 9 July 2015

The European Parliament adopted by 400 votes to 98 with 86 abstentions a resolution on the security challenges in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and the prospects for political stability.

Parliament called on the EU and its Member States to address the root causes of the deteriorating situation in the MENA region through a holistic, ambitious approach.

It welcomed actions taken by the EU Member States participating in the international coalition against ISIS, whether in the form of military strikes or through logistical, financial and humanitarian participation. However, it called for increased mobilisation in all spheres, with better-articulated actions, which could be coordinated as part of a Common Security and Defence (CSDP) operation.

Parliament called on the EU to develop operational capacity and to put in place a true common European defence. It deplored the fact that CSDP operations deployed were too small and out of step with the region's security challenges.

The European Parliament adopted by 52 votes to 0 with 1 abstention a resolution on security and human trafficking in Sinai. The resolution was tabled by the EPP, S&D, ALDE, Greens/EFA, and ECR groups.

Parliament condemned the recent terrorist attacks against security forces and civilians in Sinai, and expressed its deep concern regarding the reported cases of human trafficking there, noting that thousands of people had been kidnapped in eastern Sudan, taken to Egypt and tortured in Sinai, more than 4 000 of whom have died since the beginning of 2008. It was believed that around 1 000 African refugees are currently being held in captivity.

Members stressed the responsibility of the Egyptian and Israeli governments to combat human trafficking in this area. Noting that the Egyptian interim Government seemed unable to bring the security crisis in Sinai under control, Parliament called for intensified efforts. It also underlined the importance of coordinated regional action.
