The Euronews office in Brussels launches a new debate program from the capital of the European institutions. In “Brussels, I love you?” we talk about the big issues of the week, and we analyze what is at stake for Europe. Until now the program has been broadcast in English, but this week it starts in Spanish with our correspondent Méabh Mc Mahon.
In this first episode in Spanish, we speak with MEPs Juan Fernando López Aguilar, from the Social Democrats, and Javier Zarzalejos, from the European People’s Party, and with analyst Camino Mortera, from the Center for European Reforms.
The leaders of the European Union and 15 European commissioners have visited the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, this week to meet with the country’s president, Volodimir Zelensky and numerous members of his government. It is the first time that the European Commission has visited a country at war.
The European Commission has promised a tenth round of sanctions against Russia that it hopes will be a reality by the first anniversary of the Russian invasion. However, now Ukraine needs weapons and not just visits. During the program, the guests have discussed Germany’s decision to finally send Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine and have stated that it should have been done earlier.
The guests have also delved into the migration debate and the European Union’s delay in approving its Migration and Asylum Pact. European leaders will meet next week in Brussels to address this issue. Although the guests have been skeptical about its possible success. The European Parliament hopes that EU governments agree on a plan before the 2024 European elections.
