EU Priorities 2020

In reaction to today's announcement of the Joint Communication to the European Parliament and the Council on A New Response to a Changing Neighbourhood, five EPP Group MEPs have sent a letter and a non-paper to High Representative Catherine Ashton and Commissioner Stefan Füle emphasising the importance of the Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy and the need for a balanced EU approach towards its Eastern and Southern neighbours.

The non-paper, elaborated in the framework of the Visegrad Plus Initiative launched and led by five European People's Party Members of the European Parliament representing the countries of the region - Jacek Saryusz-Wolski MEP (Poland), György Schöpflin MEP (Hungary), Andrey Kovatchev MEP (Bulgaria), Eduard Kukan MEP (Slovakia), and Traian Ungureanu MEP (Romania), outlines several proposals envisaging a strong EU commitment to the Eastern dimension of the European Neighbourhood Policy, namely the Eastern Partnership.
