The European Parliament (EP) plays an important role in shaping the trade policy of the EU, stated MEP Iuliu Winkler, Vice-Chair of the International Trade Committee (INTA) in the EP, during a debate concerning the latest developments of the European Partnership for Responsible Minerals - EPRM, Tuesday morning, in Brussels.
My belief, and that of another 40 million EU citizens, is that the EUÂ´s stubbornness, to remain silent on the matter of national and linguistic minorities in Europe, is a mistake of historic proportions; affirmed MEP Iuliu Winkler (RMDSZ, EPP) in his Written Declaration forwarded to the European ParliamentÂ´s Plenary this Wednesday, in the context of the debate following the State of the Union speech of European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker. The MEPÂ´s statement comes as a follow-up to President JunckerÂ´s concluding assertion that “History will not remember us ... but will remember our mistakes”.
