2016 Report on Turkey (A8-0234/2017 - Kati Piri)  
 

. ‒ Today, Labour MEPs voted in favour of suspending accession with Turkey if it goes ahead with constitutional reforms that threaten the rule of law and separation of powers. Importantly, this report makes it clear that if accession talks are suspended, any accession funding that the EU currently provides should go directly to the NGOs and civil-society organisations that are under threat in an increasingly authoritarian Turkey.

EU action for sustainability (A8-0239/2017 - Seb Dance)  
 

The EU is fully committed to be a frontrunner in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. I supported this report because it devises a strategic approach to achieving sustainable development in Europe and integrating the SDGs in the European policy framework.

EU-Kosovo Framework Agreement on the general principles for the participation of Kosovo in Union programmes (A8-0207/2017 - Ulrike Lunacek)  
 

I voted in favour of the EU-Kosovo Framework Agreement because it will enable the gradual opening and the reinforced participation in certain European Union programmes for Kosovo.
