The MEP said that the draft that is on the table, and which in Thursday’s session will be submitted to vote, is recognized by the European Union and the United States, which expect Parliament to vote for.

In his statement, the European official also expressed support for the Speaker Meta’s effort to dialogue.

“We fully and completely support Parliament Speaker in his efforts to find a solution thanks to proposals put forth, on the basis of Nuland hybrid proposal,” Fleckenstein said.
