Attacks in Brussels on 22nd March, 2016


From PACE, The Party of the Citizens of Europe, Parti des Citoyens Européens, Partei der Europäischen Bürger/innen, Partij van Europese Burgers

Lille, 22nd March, 2016

Attacks in Brussels on 22nd March, 2016

The Party of the Citizens of Europe, PACE, expresses deep condolences to the families of the victims of the Brussels attacks and to the Belgian people.

As many other places in the world, several European countries were struck recently by terrorist attacks: Denmark, France and Belgium. To deal with this situation and improve the safety of European Citizens, robust measures have to be taken to fight terrorism effectively.

PACE requests the creation of a European Intelligence Agency which would pool information and means in order to upgrade the monitoring of potentially dangerous individuals, thus reducing the risk of attacks.
