“In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament’s core activities.
On 2 April, the Conference of Presidents updated the EP’s calendar of activities to introduce an extraordinary plenary session on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 April in Brussels, and additional dates for remote meetings for EP governing bodies, committees and political groups.
The current precautionary measures adopted by the European Parliament to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution’s legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.
Following these decisions, the next AFET Committee meeting will take place on 30 April, 7 May and 19 May (via videoconference).
