Terrorist crisis affects future EU debate

The joint session of the Committee for European affairs of the Bundestag and the EU Delegation of the French Assemblée Nationale, which was due to take place on Wednesday 19 September, has been cancelled. It has been postponed to the end of October.

An extraordinary session of the German parliament on the terrorist attacks in the USA last week prevented the German deputies from attending the joint session of the Committee for European affairs of the Bundestag and the EU Delegation of the French AssemblàNationale. The meeting is postponed to the end of October. The exact date has not been communicated yet.

 

The mission of the EU Delegation of the French National Assembly is to monitor the activities of the EU institutions, in order to inform the parliament. The Bundestag also has a special Committee on EU affairs, which facilitates its decision-making, when it has to give its opinion on EU affairs to the German federal government.

Both delegations regularly participate in the meetings of the Conférence des Organes spécialisés en Affaires communautaire des Parlements de l'Union Européenne (COSAC), which brings together representatives of the European affairs committees of national parliaments and of the EP's Committee on Institutional Affairs.

A meeting was planned between the Bundestag's European Affairs committee and the EU delegation of the French National Assembly, in order to draw up a proposal for a joint declaration on the Future of the EU.

 

The Franco-German proposal for a joint declaration is due to be adopted on 10 December 2001.
