State of EU-Russia relations (debate)
MPphoto
 

  Boris Zala (S&D). Mr President, re-balancing policy towards Russia would require a more self-confident role for the EU as an autonomous security actor, not least through greater engagement in the resolution of the existing frozen conflicts in the Eastern Neighbourhood. We need deeper cooperation in the field of defence and security, working towards a vision of common European armed forces with an integrated operational command, as well as a fully-fledged EU intelligence agency. We need an energy union: a joint mechanism to coordinate Member States’ negotiations of bilateral energy supply contracts and, ultimately, to empower the EU to negotiate contracts on behalf of the Member States. That is a way to overcome the strongest tool Russia has for dividing the Member States.
