S&D president Iratxe García on the PES Leaders' meeting

We are concerned about the health situation in Europe. Faced with the increase in COVID-19 cases, the European Social Democratic leaders ask for coordination: common criteria and measures in health, mobility and transport matters, to face the virus.

Furthermore, it is urgent that the Council unblock the negotiations so that the recovery plan and the European budget are the answer to the challenges that lie ahead. We do not want to choose between compliance with the rule of law and economic recovery. The EU must achieve both.
 
Those who suffer the consequences of the crisis are waiting for a solidarity and coordinated action from Europe. We work for them, let's not let them down.
