On 24 March 2020, the Chairs of the Committees on Foreign Affairs, Development and Budget wrote to the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative Josep Borrell, and the Commissioners for International Partnerships, Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations, Crisis Management and Budget to express support for the Commission's efforts to combat the COVID-19 crisis.

They also emphasised the importance of showing solidarity with affected third countries, in particular those in the EU's immediate neighbourhood, and requested information on the envisaged measures mitigating the overall socio-economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis in these countries.
