In an exchange of views with German Foreign Minister Mr. Michael Roth, I called on the German Presidency of the Council of the EU to commit itself to the three key points for the relaunch of the EU:

  • To pave the way for treaty reform if requested by the citizens in the framework of the Conference on the Future of Europe ;
  • Making the transfer of EU funds conditional on national governments respecting the rule of law;
  • Enable the creation of transnational lists for the European elections of 2024.
