The Liberal and Democratic family is ready to lead the #EUFightBack
At the invitation of ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen MEP, Guy Verhofstadt MEP, leader of the ALDE Group in the European Parliament, and EDP President François Bayrou, liberal Prime Ministers, European Commissioners and ALDE Group’s Head of delegations met at the Egmont Palace in Brussels on Thursday 22 June 2017, ahead of the European Council Summit on the same day.
The liberal family discussed some crucial topics for Europe’s future, including the start of the Brexit negotiations, the setting up of a genuine EU Defence, as well as the way forward following Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Our message was clear: we must seize the pro-EU momentum and reform our Union for the better.
That’s also what Ciudadanos'’ leader Albert Rivera told journalists on Palais d’Egmont’s doorstep:
Following Trump’s withdrawal of the #ParisAgreement, Xavier Bettel, Prime minister of Luxembourg, emphasized Europe’s responsibility to lead the fight against climate change.
One thing is for sure: never has the Liberal team been so ready to lead the #EUFightBack :)
