“Europe is correcting lack of coordination” – Sassoli

Europe is correcting the selfishness and lack of coordination between national governments in the face of the COVID-19 crisis, according to EP President David Sassoli.

In a video statement, Sassoli said that today the extraordinary meeting of the European Council gave the green light to the Commission’s proposals, also indicated by the European Parliament, to tackle the spread of the virus and help countries in need.

“Finally, we are showing a real sense of solidarity: preferential lanes for the passage of medical equipment, defending the free movement of goods in the EU, and the first important economic support for our families and businesses. A united Europe, willing and ready to act, is finally on the field to tackle this dramatic challenge,” said Sassoli.

Sassoli said that nobody will be left alone and nobody will have to act alone.
