Juri Ratas said: "Around 10,000 Estonian citizens living in the United Kingdom gained certainty that their lives will continue as before. People will be granted the same rights that they currently have as citizens of the European Union in the United Kingdom, among others in regard to social benefits and pensions. However, this is still an agreement of honor, which must be formalized as a legally binding contract. The following negotiations on the future relations will also depend on how the agreements of the previous tier are respected," External link

Donald Tusk skriver: – Det [att ta ansvar för flyktingar] kan inte vila på ett fåtal medlemsländers axlar. Vi kommer hitta en europeisk lösning på migrationsproblemet, annars blir det ingen lösning, sade EU-kommissionens första vice ordförande Frans Timmermans under en debatt i Europaparlamentet på onsdagen inför EU-toppmötet som inleds i morgon torsdag. På toppmötet ska stats- och regeringscheferna bland annat försöka bryta dödläget i förhandlingarna om unionens framtida asylsystem där frågan om omfördelning av flyktingar har splittrat länderna. Medan Sverige och andra menar att alla måste ta ansvar vägrar länder som Polen och Ungern att ta emot flyktingar. Donald Tusk som leder toppmötet har skickat ut ett diskussionsunderlag till ledarna där han beskriver omfördelningen med obligatoriska flyktingkvoter för varje medlemsland som ineffektiv. ”Frågan om obligatoriska kvoter har varit väldigt splittrande och den har fått oproportionerligt mycket uppmärksamhet givet dess påverkan på marken: i det sammanhanget så har den visat sig vara ineffektiv, External link

Maria Joao Rodrigues said: "The Joint Declaration is disappointing proof that when all the main EU institutions are led by the centre-right, the thirst for progress and change is lost. The S&Ds have long been fighting for concrete actions against tax avoidance, for decent working conditions, for a strong EU budget and a better functioning Eurozone. However, the Joint Declaration treats these as secondary priorities, without listing the concrete actions that need to happen on: Taxation: The Common and Consolidated Corporate Tax Base and many other taxation proposals under negotiation are nowhere in the Joint Declaration. Social Europe: The Social Fairness Package, promised by the Commission as a concrete follow-up to the recently proclaimed European Pillar of Social Rights, has been taken out of the text. EU budget: There is no mention of the need for proper own resources in the post-2020 EU budget so that the EU could stop being at the mercy of member states' cash contributions. Eurozone: And just when the Commission made a number of proposals to reform the Eurozone's functioning, the Joint Declaration only provides a vague reference. " External link

Karmenu Vella said: “And the segment I want to talk about today is plastics. They’ve often been the backbone of the linear economy. And because they are so convenient, they aren’t just going to disappear. But we can rethink them. We can find ways of keeping those advantages, while minimising the harm they do. And if we make them more circular, we can actually tackle three SDGs at the same time. We can move toward more sustainable production and consumption, we can tackle marine litter, and if we change our manufacturing processes and remove substances of concern, then we can also protect human health,” “This is an area where the European Commission has been working very hard. Our Action Plan for the Circular Economy made plastics a priority, so it’s something that we are preparing very carefully. The result will be a new strategy for plastics, which I want to be exemplary, and an inspiration for economies around the world,” External link

Karmenu Vella said: “The first is to put this linear approach behind us. To make it not just desirable, but normal and financially advantageous to recycle plastics,” “We can do that by improving the economics and the quality of plastic recycling – being more careful about what goes into plastics in the first place, and by ensuring that there are real incentives to use plastic recyclate,” External link

So we have to help that movement be as effective as possible. If you want a strategy to be effective, you need to ensure you are acting in the right areas, with the right instruments.

Over the years the EU has developed legal and operational tools against this heinous crime. But more needs to be done as the migration crisis and transnational security threats have rendered people more vulnerable to criminal networks and exploitation. I call on all Member States to urgently step up their investigations and prosecutions against ruthless trafficking criminals, better protect the victims and fully apply the EU rules towards their protection. I also call on all to work more closely with international partners. Human trafficking is not just a European problem – we must do everything to eradicate it everywhere it happens” External link

Maroš Šefčovič said: “Unfortunately it’s still in the Council. I know that the Estonian Presidency is doing its outmost. We have different positions of the legal services on especially the direct applicability of the Third Energy Package for the offshore pipeline and that is one of the reasons why we want to present this amendment to the gas directive and to make clear there should be no, I would say, ambiguity or questions marks over the application of the Energy Union, of energy law on the offshore pipelines. We hope that it would help the Council to accelerate the work on the mandate so we can really proceed with the negotiations,” External link

Jevgeni Ossinovski said: “The harmful use of alcohol is a serious public health concern in Europe, causing extensive health and economic losses every year. Health policy, including alcohol policy, is in the competence of the member states; however factors affecting health often lay in the hands of other sectors, many of which have harmonised EU rules. There are things that can be done by the member states, but there are a number of issues that we could deal with more effectively together with other countries,” “Therefore, we have made alcohol policy one of our priorities during the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The conference in Tallinn provides an opportunity to seek, in cooperation with experts from other sectors, solutions to cross-border issues that limit the opportunities of national governments to protect public health” External link
