Olukord Venezuelas pärast rahvuskogu uue eestseisuse ja juhatuse ebaseaduslikke valimisi (parlamentaarne riigipööre) (B9-0051/2020, B9-0052/2020, B9-0053/2020, RC-B9-0048/2020, B9-0048/2020, B9-0049/2020, B9-0050/2020) EN  

I supported the resolution.
The text reiterates its full support for the National Assembly, which is the only legitimately elected democratic body of Venezuela and whose powers need to be respected, including the prerogatives and safety of its members.
It insists that a peaceful and political solution can only be reached by fully respecting the National Assembly’s constitutional prerogatives.
The EU stands ready to support a genuine process towards a peaceful and democratic resolution of the crisis based on the roadmap adopted in the National Assembly of Venezuela.
Respecting democratic institutions and principles and upholding the rule of law are essential conditions for finding a peaceful and sustainable solution to the crisis in Venezuela for the benefit of its people.

Bioloogilise mitmekesisuse konventsiooni COP15 (Kunming 2020) (B9-0035/2020) EN  

While more ambition is needed in order to protect the environment and biodiversity, it is important to take into account also a smooth transition especially when it comes to agriculture. Thus, in achieving the ambitious environmental targets we need extensive studies for alternatives to pesticides and assessments concerning the impact these alternatives would have on strategic domains, such as agriculture.

Euroopa roheline kokkulepe (RC-B9-0040/2020, B9-0040/2020, B9-0041/2020, B9-0042/2020, B9-0043/2020, B9-0044/2020, B9-0045/2020, B9-0046/2020) EN  

I salute the social dimension of the European Green Deal, which is a milestone for the future of Europe. However, in order to put our economies to carbon neutrality by 2050 and have a 55% reduction of CO2 by 2030, The European Green Deal has to be a common project of the European Union. Yet, in order to be a successful one, we have to make sure no one is left behind. Otherwise, we risk not only failing to reach the ambitious objectives, but also deepening the gap between European blocks of countries.

Väljaastumislepingus sisalduvate kodanike õigusi käsitlevate sätete rakendamine ja jälgimine (B9-0031/2020) RO  

Ieșirea Marii Britanii din Uniunea Europeană va aduce schimbări radicale, multe la care, probabil, nici măcar nu ne așteptăm. Singurele pe care nu ni le putem permite sub nicio forma sunt cele referitoare la respectarea drepturilor celor 3 milioane de cetățeni europeni care se află acum pe teritoriul Regatului Unit. Comunitatea cu cea mai mare migrație din ultimii doi ani a fost cea românească, ajunsa astăzi la peste 400 000 de cetățeni, prima ca pondere în Londra, și a doua la nivel național, după polonezi.
Comisia trebuie să se asigure că acești oameni nu vor suferi discriminări în procesul de selectare a angajaților, că nu vor fi refuzate împrumuturile guvernamentale acordate azi studenților, că nu le vor fi majorate taxele în universități și că nu li se va îngrădi dreptul de a lucra în Marea Britanie după absolvire. În ultimele decenii, comunitatea provenită din restul Uniunii a contribuit masiv la dezvoltarea Marii Britanii, inclusiv la bugetul țării. Pentru toți acești oameni, anularea acestor drepturi ar fi o nedreptate, iar pentru Marea Britanie, o pierdere atât umană, cât și economică.

Inimõigusi ja demokraatiat maailmas ning Euroopa Liidu poliitikat selles valdkonnas käsitlev 2018. aasta aruanne (A9-0051/2019 - Isabel Wiseler-Lima) EN  

I fully support this report. The EU as global actor must set standards and set the example in the field of Democracy and Human Rights respect all over the World. The report expresses its deep concern at the attacks on democracy and the rule of law worldwide in 2018, which reflect the rise of authoritarianism as a political project, embodying disregard for human rights, repression of dissent, politicised justice, predetermined election results, shrinking space for civil society to operate in, and limitations on freedom of assembly and freedom of expression; underlines the importance of civil society. It calls for timely and effective responses to regimes that violate international law, human rights and democratic principles.

Ühise välis- ja julgeolekupoliitika rakendamist käsitlev aastaaruanne (A9-0054/2019 - David McAllister) EN  

I supported this resolution. It recalls that at a moment when competing powers are increasingly challenging the rules-based global order, we, as Europeans, must defend universal values, rules and principles – in particular multilateralism, international law, the rule of law, democracy, respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms, free and fair trade, non-violent conflict resolution and shared European interests – both outside and inside the EU; stresses that, in order to retain credibility as a bearer of universal values like democracy, the European Union must take action that is consistent with its principles. I fully share this opinion.

Ühise julgeoleku- ja kaitsepoliitika rakendamist käsitlev aastaaruanne (A9-0052/2019 - Arnaud Danjean) EN  

I supported this resolution. The text notes the deterioration of the Union’s security environment in the face of multiple challenges directly or indirectly affecting the security of its Member States and citizens: armed conflicts and fragile states on the European continent and in its vicinity provoking massive population displacement and human rights abuses facilitated by transnational organised crime networks, jihadist terrorism, cyber attacks, hybrid threats and warfare against European countries. Moreover, it recalls the increasing threats to natural resources, energy insecurity and climate change for Europe.

Euroopa Parlamendi seisukoht Euroopa tuleviku teemalise konverentsi kohta (B9-0036/2020, B9-0037/2020, B9-0038/2020) EN  

The most important point for me on the conference on the future of Europe is real transparency and participation in particular of the youth and citizens outside this house and the EU bubble. if we really want to rethink and improve the European Union Institutions and mechanism we need to talk to the people outside these walls and really listen to them. If the conference of Europe will at the end result in back door deals and a bureaucratic partition of posts and powers then I fear it will not change the Future of the European Union.

ÜPP: finantsdistsipliin alates eelarveaastast 2021 ja sambaid puudutav paindlikkus kalendriaastal 2020 (A9-0042/2019 - Norbert Lins) EN  

First of all, this proposal has been approved by the Committee on Agriculture and Rural Development without opposition. The Commission adopted the proposal on 31 October and Council approved it on 25 November. Parliament´s approval of the proposal under the simplified procedure without amendments allows the measure to take effect quickly.
This is due to the fact that the text puts in place transitional arrangements which will allow the finances to be available for the CAP to continue for the year 2021 and to allow Member States flexibility for use of funds between the two pillars of the policy.
The aim of this proposal is to provide financial certainty and continuity for the different forms of support under the CAP and particularly for direct payments to farmers, ensuring the smooth transition from the current CAP to the new one and allowing for continuity after the end of the current funding period and before the new CAP comes into force.

ELi ja Gambia vaheline säästva kalapüügi partnerlusleping ja selle rakendamise protokoll (A9-0026/2019 - Carmen Avram) EN  

The Republic of The Gambia is one of the smallest countries in Africa. However, its fishing potential is rather big. Although this resource could turn into a great opportunity, Gambia’s fishing sector contributes little to the economy. This is due, among other things, to the lack of a sustainable management of its fisheries resources, coupled with the lack of structural support, the lack of up-to-date scientific research and the illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU).
As a rapporteur for this partnership, I stressed the fact that the agreement covers the cooperation in the fight against IUU fishing and the promotion of the blue economy, including aquaculture.
Secondly, I took into account the fact that Gambia has committed to become a member of the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT). Last but not least, the structural support of the partnership will help the country develop the fishing sector.
For all the above-mentioned reasons, I voted in favour.
