EU is determined to deal effectively with terror attacks, EU Commissioner Avramopoulos says
EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos on Thursday expressed EU’s determination to deal effectively with terror attacks.
Avramopoulos was addressing the European Parliament plenary, in Strasbourg, on terror issues.
“2015 was a turning point in the way Europe experienced terrorism,” he stated pointing out that the terror threat in EU is very high.
The Greek Commissioner underlined that the EU is “determined to respond with determination and resilience while respecting the principles of tolerance, democracy and respect to the fundamental human rights.”
2016 will be the year that we will prosecute the profits from terror actions, Avramopoulos added.
“We have to deprive terrorists of financial resources. In early February we will present our proposals within a specific timetable,” he said. “It is clear that we need to improve the management of our external borders with the aim of improving internal security and the preservation of the Schengen area,” Avramopoulos underlined.
