Deeply saddened by the destruction and loss of life caused by the devastating earthquake that hit #Nepal and parts of India this morning. The full extent of the casualties and damage is still unknown but reports indicate they will likely be high, both in terms of loss of life, injuries and damage to cultural heritage. Our hearts go out to the Nepalese and Indian people and all the families affected by this tragedy.

This is a humanitarian emergency that requires an internationally coordinated relief effort, which the EU is prepared to support.

Immediate action is needed to address the crisis situation in the Mediterranean. EU leaders are working together, drawing upon the 10 Point Action Plan on Migration presented by HRVP Federica Mogherini and Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos: 10 direct, substantial measures we will take to make an immediate difference. europa.eu/!KV34kT

How about Embassies allow Asylum seekers, they are best placed in the respective countries or next door in some cases and far easier to travel to by people seeking asylum instead of some far longer, dangerous path.

That alone would be the right move.  You need official channels best placed to tackle those in need and thereby remove what are many unofficial channels you support by previous and in fairness, current actions mostly focused upon fall-out over source/root-causes.

#5  raises the question - why is this not being done and is like saying people who enter Europe, as illegals and met and death with by authorities are not fingerprinted currently until now, hence this edict!  Worrying and on many levels.

But more focus upon source, those exploiting these people (ie criminals with boats not fit for a bath) as easier to cut out a few roots than entire forests that grow from those roots.

Is it not +European Commission

The Gay Geotour starts in 's Graveland. A Midlife stop is in the Hubrecht Laboratorium in Utrecht (read about it in Cell) where you can be treated with a Hubrechtje (DNA gender transformation). You get a "GeoCoin" for your courage plus ten points. Then you continue your Geowalk to Amsterdam. In the famous YabYum you get a post-transformation treatment. You learn a lot and you forget even more. As a qualified hetero you can leave YabYum after a long weekend or a special midweek.
Have a nice Gay Geotour! Information at the office of the Mayor of Amsterdam that is run by AbvaKabo.

As the arrival of boats continues, EU leaders come together for today's Extraordinary EU Summit in a clear signal of European solidarity and sense of urgency. A common effort from the European institutions and the 28 Member States is needed.

The Europeans may not fully appreciate the quality of life in the E.U. but they should better look into the lives of citizens of other states and realise that the E.U. is a "paradise" compared to other places on Earth.

We have sent a Statement of Objections to ‪‎Gazprom‬ for alleged abuse of dominance on Central and Eastern European gas supply markets. "All companies that operate in the European market – no matter if they are European or not – have to play by our EU rules", said Margrethe Vestager, EU Commissioner in charge of competition policy

SMEs are already big winners from transatlantic trade: 150,000 SMEs exported to the United States in 2012 (28% of all EU exports). However, SMEs see challenges in exporting to the US market, many of which can be eased by a #TTIP agreement. It will be one of the points on the agenda of the 9th round of negotiations that starts today in New York City.

TTIP is a very bad idea for Europe and for European citizens. I want my Commission to protect me from it.

Introduction
The Commission's job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole. It is headed by 28 Commissioners, 1 per country.

The Commission is independent of national governments. Its job is to represent and uphold the interests of the EU as a whole.

Description
