The developments in Russia, #Belarus, the worrying situation in the #EasternMediterranean & geopolitical implications of #COVID19 topped EPP Foreign Affairs ministers meeting in the framework of #Gymnich meetings. Image
EPP Foreign Affairs minister discussed the recent developments in Russia including the poisoning of Alexei @navalny and expressing their deep concern and supporting for the need for a swift, transparent and independent investigation.
The EPP FA ministers reiterated their strong support to the Belarusian people who fight for their legitimate rights, freedom & democracy, calling on Belarusian authorities to stop violence & to immediately release leaders of the Coordination Council & all political prisoners.
Turkey’s escalating illegal activities in the #EasternMediterranean, which violate the sovereign rights of #Cyprus and #Greece and international law & destabilize the region were also discussed by the EPP Foreign Affairs Ministers.
They deplored that Turkey has yet to respond to repeated EU calls to cease illegal activities. Given the continuing escalation, the EU must immediately respond, including by adopting an enhanced regime of restrictive measures.

The EU must now redefine our relationship with China to:

👉recognize the challenge China poses
👉 strengthen cooperation with our democratic allies
👉 defend our core values & international world order.

More about EPP’s position on China 👇

EPP welcomes China’s participation in global efforts to develop a #COVID19 vaccine.

We also recognise China’s attempts to control global narrative on COVID-19, deflect criticism of its own handling of the crisis & erode citizens’ trust in national & EU institutions
EPP calls for
👉an independent investigation into human rights violations against Uyghurs in Xinjiang
👉release of imprisoned human rights defenders, dissidents & others, incl. 🇸🇪citizen Gui Minhai
👉free access to Tibet
👉the finalisation of EU’s Global Sanctions Regime

💬Dear friends, it is with deep emotion that I address you at #EPPZagreb today, in my final speech as EPP President. The end of a mandate is always an opportunity to reflect, to take stock of your successes & failures. Image
💬A priority as EPP President has been building a closer cooperation with #WesternBalkans countries. We honour the late President Martens by continuing to defend the European path of the #WesternBalkans, said @JosephDaul
💬My proudest achievement has been ensuring the #EPP remains united. We are a family of many different perspectives but one that remains true to our founders Christian Democratic values, European commitment & faith in the social market economy, said @JosephDaul at #EPPZagreb

💬Welcome our leaders, delegates, guests & the press to #Zagreb as we kick off our 2-day #EPPZagreb Congress. It's an important Congress as @EPP delegates will elect a new leadership & vote on the party's stance on important policies. Image
💬With a new President and a new Presidency, the @EPP enters a new era. EPP was once again victorious in #EP2019 European elections & managed to elect again an EPP Commission President, but we must now change too to improve & adapt to new realities Image
💬I couldn't be more proud to sit next to PM @AndrejPlenkovic today. I have followed his ascent from the beginning of his career in the @Europarl_EN & I knew he would leave a mark and make history for #Croatia. PM #Plenkovic' leadership & vision is praised at home & in Europe

@JosephDaul 💬#Moldova is at a historic turning point but it is important to be patient. Things do not change over night, completely reforming a country takes time & patience. When a law is passed it must be implemented & the results are not seen immediately, said EPP President @JosephDaul
