Situation of North Korean refugees (debate)

  Gerald Häfner (Verts/ALE), Blue-card question to Ms Senyszyn under Rule 149(8)). – (DE) Ms Senyszyn, even having heard your speech I fail to understand why the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats is unwilling to support this joint resolution. It is a good and established custom in this House that joint resolutions are framed on questions such as this. We also arrange to meet together in advance, which was also the case here. We have discussed all the issues and, as I understand it, have also reached agreement. At the end of the process, the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats let it be known that they would not support the resolution. Having heard all you have to say, I can see no reason for this refusal, not that the timing is wrong, that the topic is wrong, or even that the resolution is aimed at the wrong audience. My question is therefore the following: what is your reason for abandoning cooperation over this specific issue?
