Immigration, CETA and Russia the focus of EP discussion

Immigration, the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) recently rejected by Wallonia’s parliament, and EU-Russian relations, were the focus of the three-hour discussion held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the conclusions of the recent European Council meeting.

Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker briefed MEPs on the conclusions of the latest EU Summit. In his speech, Tusk said that the EU leaders’ assessment of EU-Russian relations was “without illusions” and referred to “disinformation campaigns, cyber-attacks, political interference” and called for unity in the EU, “as Russia tries to weaken and split the EU”.
