Remarks by Commissioner Avramopoulos on the 20th Security Union Progress Report, Brussels 30/10/2019

30 Oct 2019

This Commission made security a priority from day one. The European Agenda on Security, which I presented to you in 2015, has been our guiding principle and, together with Julian, we have been working to build an effective and genuine Security Union. This Commission has taken the lead on security, something that was inconceivable some years ago. Security has always been considered as matter of national competence.

22 Oct 2019

The Schengen area is the largest free travel area in the world and it is one of the biggest achievements of European integration, one that benefits citizens very directly and very concretely.This is an area that comes with freedoms and privileges, but also with great responsibilities. Joining this club is not something that we take lightly. But we do approach it honestly and fairly.
