“The EPP Group is satisfied with Sir Julian King’s performance. We are convinced that he sees the need for a strong EU common response to the great variety of security challenges we are facing. We expect him to develop the Security Union”, said Monika Hohlmeier MEP, EPP Group Spokeswoman in the Civil Liberties Committee, following today’s Group meeting on his performance during his hearing for the post of Security Union Commissioner.

Yesterday evening, the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee held a public hearing during which Sir Julian explained how he, as a European Commissioner, would approach the many security challenges Europe is facing today.

"We all need to think and act European if a comprehensive EU Security Union is to be achieved. Sir Julian’s replies reflect this European approach. I look forward to seeing the development of this approach”, said Robert Metsola MEP, EPP Group Deputy Spokeswoman in the Civil Liberties Committee.

“We welcome the fact that the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, created a separate portfolio on security. This is something the EPP Group has always called for."
