NOTA DE PRENSA DE LA COPRESIDENCIA DE LA ASAMBLEA PARLAMENTARIA EURO-LATINOAMERICANA (EUROLAT) SOBRE EL INTENTO DE MAGNICIDIO CONTRA LA VICEPRESIDENTA DE LA NACIÓN ARGENTINA CRISTINA FERNÁNDEZ DE KIRCHNER

Los Co-Presidentes de la Asamblea Parlamentaria Euro-Latinoamericana expresan su más enérgica condena al intento de magnicidio perpetrado contra la Vicepresidenta de la Nación Argentina Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, ocurrido el día jueves 1ro de septiembre de 2022.

El episodio es de una gravedad institucional inusitada en el país y, por lo tanto, rechazamos públicamente toda forma de violencia que menoscaba la base misma de la democracia como sistema político, y atenta contra las autoridades democráticamente elegidas y que expresan la voluntad popular, principio rector de las formas de gobierno adoptadas por los países de ambas regiones.

Expresamos nuestra condena y rechazo frente a este episodio y reivindicamos los principios rectores de la democracia y el estado de derecho como forma de vida común. Es responsabilidad de todos generar, promover y consolidar una cultura de paz y democracia como sistema político y como forma de expresión en el orden público de los ciudadanos y las ciudadanas.

The 14th EuroLat plenary session took place in Buenos Aires (Argentina) from 11-14 April 2022.

The Eurolat Members discussed the follow up to the COVID-19 pandemic in Latin America and the Caribbean, its economic and social consequences and the road to recovery under the title of "A fair and inclusive economic recovery in peace". The pandemic has led to unprecedented losses of lives, a deep economic downturn, and had a profound negative impact on employment, poverty, education, public health and living conditions in both regions.

This meeting was the first occasion for the 150 EuroLat members to meet again in person since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. The Co-Presidents of the EuroLat Assembly, Javi López MEP, President of the European Parliament's Delegation to the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly, and Oscar Darío Pérez Pineda, President of the Latin American component, co-chaired the plenary meeting, which was held over two days throughout the programme.

The four committees of Eurolat as well as the Working Groups and Fora met in two-hour sessions each. This plenary session was the first time that the Working Group on Food Security and Fight against Hunger met and elected its Chair, after a Eurolat Bureau decision of May 2021. The unprovoked Russian invasion of Ukraine has further destabilised already fragile agricultural markets which were already under pressure due to the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change. As a result, agriculture all over the world is under pressure with potential implications about global food security.

The Eurolat Chair, Mr Javi López, had invited the Vice-President of the Argentinian Republic and President of the Honourable Senate of the Nation, Ms Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, as well as other high-level speakers for this plenary session.
