Most recent activities

Humanitarian and political situation in Yemen (B9-0119/2021)

Written explanations of vote

I voted in favour of this report which condemns the recent attacks carried out by the Iranian-backed Houthi movement in the Ma’rib and Al-Jawf Governorates, as well as the repeated attempts to carry out cross-border attacks on the territory of Saudi Arabia, which undermine the international community’s overall efforts to bring this proxy war in Yemen to an end.
This report condemns in the strongest terms the ongoing violence in Yemen since 2015, which has degenerated into the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, recalls that there can be no military solution to the conflict in Yemen and that the crisis can only be resolved sustainably through an inclusive Yemeni-led and Yemeni-owned negotiation process involving all quarters of Yemeni society and all parties to the conflict.

The situation in Myanmar (B9-0116/2021)

Written explanations of vote

I supported this report which expresses sympathy and support to the people of Myanmar in their peaceful and legitimate struggle for democracy, freedom and human rights. This report strongly condemns the military coup of February 1st and calls for the immediate and unconditional release of President Win Myint, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, and all others who have been illegally arrested. In addition, the report calls upon the Vice-President/High Representative to closely engage with like-minded partners, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, India, Australia, Canada but also in particular the Members of ASEAN, to seek close coordination and streamlining of positions and initiatives in order to work towards the restoration of a civilian government as soon as possible.

The Recovery and Resilience Facility will be used to help people and enterprises affected by the crisis, to make the European Union stronger and more resilient, to reform, to stay competitive, to become more modern, digital and greener.
