"Mr President, I should like to congratulate my esteemed colleague, Michel Rocard, on his report. As it underlines, the only valid response in our desire for reform in the Arab world is one which is inclusive and based on common values – something which is too often lost in talk of the war on terror. As several Socialist colleagues have said, we need to make real progress in finding a peaceful and long-term solution to the problems of conflict, not least between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples. But let me highlight the absolute need to limit the impact of any direct or indirect support by the EU or our Member States for authoritarianism in the region. There needs to be a re-evaluation of the relationship between European security services and their counterparts, making sure that these agencies continue to cooperate in addressing common threats, including terrorism, but that any action is unambiguously consistent with international human rights law, including the provisions on torture. There need to be tighter controls governing arms or military transfers to the region to ensure these are not used in internal repression or external aggression. In all of the EU’s external assistance programmes there needs to be further re-evaluation of the provision of assistance to countries in the region in order to promote development and economic justice and to support the reformers themselves in the reform process."@en4

"Hr. formand! Jeg vil gerne lykønske min agtede kollega hr. Michel Rocard med hans betænkning. Som det fremgår af betænkningen, er det eneste gyldige svar på vores ønske om reformer i den arabiske verden et altomfattende svar, der bygger på fælles værdier - noget der alt for ofte går tabt i snakken om kampen mod terror. Som adskillige socialistiske kolleger har sagt, skal vi gøre reelle fremskridt med henblik på at finde en fredelig og langsigtet løsning på konflikten, ikke mindst mellem det israelske og det palæstinensiske folk. Men jeg vil gerne fremhæve nødvendigheden af at begrænse effekten af enhver direkte eller indirekte støtte fra EU eller vores medlemsstater til autoritære principper i regionen. Forholdet mellem de europæiske sikkerhedstjenester og deres pendanter skal revurderes med henblik på at sikre disse organers fortsatte samarbejde om at bekæmpe fælles trusler inklusive terrorisme under klar overholdelse af de internationale menneskerettighedslove inklusive torturbestemmelserne. Der skal være skrappere kontroller vedrørende overførsler af våben eller militær til regionen for at sikre, at de ikke anvendes i en intern undertrykkelse eller en ekstern aggression. I alle EU's programmer for ekstern bistand skal der foretages en revurdering af bistanden til landene i regionen med henblik på at fremme udvikling og økonomisk retfærdighed og støtte reformisterne i reformprocessen."@da2
"Herr Präsident! Ich möchte meinem verehrten Kollegen Michel Rocard zu seinem Bericht gratulieren. Wie er betont, kann die einzige gültige Antwort in Bezug auf unseren Wunsch nach Reformen in der arabischen Welt nur allumfassend sein und auf gemeinsamen Werten basieren – was bei den Gesprächen über die Terrorismusbekämpfung nur allzu oft nicht zur Sprache kommt. Wie mehrere sozialdemokratische Kollegen bereits sagten, müssen wir bei der Suche nach einer friedlichen und langfristigen Lösung der Probleme des Konflikts, nicht zuletzt zwischen den Israelis und Palästinensern, echte Fortschritte machen. Lassen Sie mich jedoch betonen, dass es absolut unerlässlich ist, die Auswirkungen jedweder direkter oder indirekter Unterstützung des Autoritarismus in der Region seitens der EU oder unserer Mitgliedstaaten zu begrenzen. Die Beziehungen zwischen den europäischen Sicherheitsdiensten und ihrem Gegenüber müssen neu bewertet werden, wobei zu gewährleisten ist, dass sie weiterhin zusammenarbeiten, um gemeinsame Gefahren, einschließlich des Terrorismus, zu bekämpfen, und dass sämtliche Maßnahmen eindeutig mit den internationalen Menschenrechtsnormen, so auch den Bestimmungen zur Folter, übereinstimmen. Es muss strengere Kontrollen der Transfers von Waffen oder militärischen Geräten in die Region geben, um sicherzustellen, dass diese nicht für interne Repressalien oder Angriffe nach außen benutzt werden. In allen Außenhilfeprogrammen der EU muss die Bereitstellung von Hilfe für Länder in der Region weiter neu beurteilt werden, um die Entwicklung und wirtschaftliche Gerechtigkeit zu fördern und die Reformer im Reformprozess zu unterstützen."@de9
"Κύριε Πρόεδρε, θέλω να συγχαρώ τον αξιότιμο συνάδελφό μου κ. Michel Rocard για την έκθεσή του. Όπως υπογραμμίζει σε αυτή, η μόνη αξιόπιστη απάντηση στην επιθυμία μας για μεταρρυθμίσεις στον αραβικό κόσμο είναι συμμετοχική και στηρίζεται σε κοινές αξίες – κάτι που πολύ συχνά λησμονείται στην όλη ρητορική περί πολέμου κατά της τρομοκρατίας. Όπως ανέφεραν αρκετοί συνάδελφοι Σοσιαλιστές, πρέπει να σημειώσουμε ουσιαστική πρόοδο για την εξεύρεση ειρηνικής και μακροπρόθεσμης λύσης στα προβλήματα που δημιουργούν οι συγκρούσεις, τουλάχιστον μεταξύ του ισραηλινού και του παλαιστινιακού λαού. Επιτρέψτε μου, όμως, να υπογραμμίσω την απόλυτη ανάγκη να περιοριστεί ο αντίκτυπος κάθε άμεσης ή έμμεσης στήριξης του αυταρχισμού στην περιοχή από την ΕΕ ή τα κράτη μέλη μας. Απαιτείται επαναξιολόγηση των σχέσεων μεταξύ των ευρωπαϊκών υπηρεσιών ασφαλείας και των ομολόγων τους στην περιοχή, έτσι ώστε να διασφαλιστεί ότι οι εν λόγω υπηρεσίες θα συνεχίσουν τη συνεργασία τους για την αντιμετώπιση κοινών απειλών, όπως η τρομοκρατία, ενώ συγχρόνως όλες οι ενέργειές τους θα συνάδουν απολύτως με το διεθνές δίκαιο των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων, περιλαμβανομένων των διατάξεων περί βασανιστηρίων. Απαιτούνται αυστηρότεροι έλεγχοι όσον αφορά τις μεταφορές όπλων και στρατιωτικού υλικού στην περιοχή, προκειμένου να διασφαλιστεί ότι δεν χρησιμοποιούνται για την καταπίεση στο εσωτερικό ή για επιθετικές ενέργειες στο εξωτερικό. Στο σύνολο των προγραμμάτων εξωτερικής βοήθειας της ΕΕ απαιτείται περαιτέρω επαναξιολόγηση της παροχής βοήθειας σε χώρες της περιοχής, με σκοπό να προωθηθεί η ανάπτυξη και η οικονομική δικαιοσύνη και να υποστηριχθούν οι ίδιοι οι μεταρρυθμιστές στο πλαίσιο της διαδικασίας μεταρρυθμίσεων."@el10
"Señor Presidente, quiero felicitar a mi estimado colega, el señor Rocard, por su informe. Tal y como subraya, la única respuesta válida en nuestro deseo de reforma en el mundo árabe es una respuesta integradora y basada en valores comunes, cosa que demasiado a menudo se pierde en la palabrería sobre la guerra contra el terrorismo. Como han dicho varios colegas socialistas, tenemos que progresar de verdad en la búsqueda de una solución pacífica a largo plazo de los problemas conflictivos, sobre todo entre israelíes y palestinos. Pero permítanme subrayar la imperiosa necesidad de limitar el impacto de cualquier apoyo directo o indirecto por parte de la UE o nuestros Estados miembros al autoritarismo en la región. Es preciso reevaluar la relación entre los servicios de seguridad europeos y sus interlocutores, asegurando que estas agencias sigan cooperando frente a las amenazas comunes, incluido el terrorismo, pero también que toda acción sea coherente, sin ambigüedades, con la legislación internacional sobre derechos humanos, incluidas las disposiciones sobre la tortura. Tiene que haber controles más estrictos sobre las transferencias de armas o de militares a la región para garantizar que no se utilicen con fines de represión interna o agresión exterior. En todos los programas de ayuda exterior de la Unión Europea es preciso revisar la ayuda a los países de la región a fin de promover el desarrollo y la justicia económica y de apoyar a los propios reformistas en el proceso de reforma."@es21

"Arvoisa puhemies, haluaisin onnitella arvostettua kollegaani, Michel Rocardia, hänen mietinnöstään. Kuten mietinnössä korostetaan, toiveemme saada aikaan uudistuksia arabimaissa voi täyttyä ainoastaan osallistavalla ja yhteisiin arvoihin perustuvalla ratkaisulla – mikä liian usein unohtuu terrorismin vastaisista toimista puhuttaessa. Kuten useat sosialidemokraattiset kollegani ovat todenneet, meidän on saavutettava todellista edistystä rauhanomaisen ja pitkäaikaisen ratkaisun löytämiseksi konfliktin ongelmiin, varsinkin Israelin ja Palestiinan kansojen välillä. Sallinette minun kuitenkin korostaa, että on ehdottoman välttämätöntä rajoittaa EU:n tai jäsenvaltioiden antaman suoran tai epäsuoran tuen vaikutusta alueen autoritaarisuuteen. Meidän on arvioitava uudelleen Euroopan turvallisuuspalvelujen ja niiden vastapuolten suhdetta ja varmistettava, että kyseiset virastot jatkavat yhteistyötä yhteisten uhkien, myös terrorismin, käsittelemiseksi ja että kaikki toimet ovat selvästi ihmisoikeussäädösten mukaisia, kidutusta koskevat määräykset mukaan luettuina. Aseiden tai sotilastarvikkeiden siirtoja alueelle on valvottava tiukemmin, jotta voidaan varmistaa, ettei niitä käytetä sisäiseen sortoon tai ulkoiseen hyökkäykseen. Kaikkien EU:n ulkoisen avun ohjelmien yhteydessä on arvioitava uudelleen tuen antamista alueen maille, jotta voidaan paremmin edistää taloudellista oikeudenmukaisuutta ja tukea uudistajia ja uudistusprosessia."@fi7
"Monsieur le Président, je souhaite féliciter mon estimé collègue, Michel Rocard, pour son rapport. Comme ce dernier le souligne, la seule réponse valable à notre désir de réforme dans le monde arabe ne peut être que globale et fondée sur des valeurs communes, que l’on oublie trop souvent pour se perdre dans des discours sur la guerre contre la terreur. Comme l’ont dit plusieurs collègues socialistes, nous devons faire de réels progrès dans la recherche d’une solution pacifique à long terme aux problèmes de conflits, notamment entre les Israéliens et les Palestiniens. Permettez-moi cependant de souligner la nécessité absolue de limiter l’impact de tout soutien direct ou indirect de l’UE ou de nos États membres à l’autoritarisme dans la région. Nous devons réévaluer la relation entre les services de sécurité européens et leurs contreparties afin de nous assurer que ces agences continuent de coopérer dans la lutte contre les menaces communes, y compris le terrorisme, et que leur action est totalement en cohérence avec le droit international et les droits de l’homme, notamment les dispositions concernant la torture. Les contrôles sur les armes et les transferts militaires vers cette région doivent être plus rigoureux afin de s’assurer qu’ils ne sont pas utilisés pour la répression interne ou l’agression externe. Dans tous les programmes d’assistance externe de l’UE, nous devons réévaluer la fourniture d’assistance aux pays de la région pour promouvoir le développement et la justice économique et soutenir les réformateurs eux-mêmes dans le processus de réforme."@fr8

"Signor Presidente, desidero congratularmi col mio stimato collega, Michel Rocard, per la sua relazione. Come questa sottolinea, l’unica risposta valida nel quadro della nostra volontà di riforma nel mondo arabo deve essere basata sull’apertura e sui valori comuni – un fatto troppo spesso perso di vista quando si parla della guerra al terrorismo. Come hanno affermato molti colleghi socialisti, dobbiamo compiere reali progressi nel trovare una soluzione pacifica e a lungo termine ai problemi di conflitto, non ultimo quello tra i popoli israeliano e palestinese. Vorrei tuttavia porre in evidenza l’assoluta necessità di limitare l’impatto di qualsiasi appoggio diretto o indiretto da parte dell’Unione europea o dei nostri Stati membri all’autoritarismo nella regione. E’ necessario rivedere il rapporto tra i servizi di sicurezza europei e i loro omologhi, assicurandosi che queste agenzie continuino a cooperare nell’affrontare le minacce comuni, compreso il terrorismo, ma anche che qualsiasi azione sia inequivocabilmente coerente con il diritto internazionale in materia di diritti umani, comprese le disposizioni sulla tortura. Occorrono controlli più severi sulle armi o sui trasferimenti militari nella regione per garantire che non siano usati a fini di repressione interna o aggressione esterna. In tutti i programmi di assistenza esterna dell’Unione europea occorre un ulteriore riesame della fornitura di assistenza ai paesi della regione al fine di promuovere lo sviluppo e la giustizia economica e di sostenere i riformatori stessi nel processo di riforma."@it12

"Mijnheer de Voorzitter, ik wil mijn geachte collega, Michel Rocard, feliciteren met zijn verslag. Zoals hij daarin onderstreept, kunnen wij, in ons verlangen naar hervorming in de Arabische wereld, maar op een manier reageren, namelijk met een inclusieve, op gedeelde waarden gegrondveste benadering, iets wat in al het gepraat over de oorlog tegen de terreur maar al te vaak ondergesneeuwd raakt. Zoals verscheidene socialistische collega’s al gezegd hebben, moeten we echte vooruitgang zien te boeken in het streven naar een vreedzame langetermijnoplossing voor de problemen waarmee conflicten - en niet in de laatste plaats het conflict tussen de Israëlische en de Palestijnse bevolking - gepaard gaan. Ik wil echter met name onderstrepen dat we de gevolgen van de directe of indirecte steun van de EU of de lidstaten aan autoritaire regimes in de regio, absoluut moeten beperken. De relatie tussen Europese veiligheidsdiensten en hun tegenhangers moet tegen het licht worden gehouden. Daarbij moet erop worden toegezien dat deze diensten weliswaar blijven samenwerken in de bestrijding van gemeenschappelijke dreigingen, waaronder terrorisme, maar dat zij in hun optreden ondubbelzinnig beantwoorden aan de internationale wetgeving inzake mensenrechten, met inbegrip van de bepalingen inzake foltering. Er moeten striktere controles komen op de overdracht van wapens en militairen naar de regio, om ervoor te zorgen dat deze niet worden ingezet in het kader van interne repressie of externe agressie. In alle buitenlandse hulpprogramma’s van de EU moet een herbeoordeling plaatsvinden van de steunverlening aan de landen in de regio, teneinde ontwikkeling en economische gerechtigheid te bevorderen en de hervormers zelf in het hervormingsproces te ondersteunen."@nl3

Todavia, permitam-me salientar a necessidade absoluta de limitar o impacto de qualquer apoio, directo ou indirecto, da UE ou dos Estados-Membros ao autoritarismo na região. Há necessidade de se fazer uma reavaliação das relações entre os serviços de segurança europeus e os seus homólogos, garantindo que estas agências continuam a cooperar na resposta a ameaças comuns, incluindo o terrorismo, mas que toda e qualquer acção é inequivocamente conforme à legislação internacional em matéria de direitos humanos, incluindo as disposições sobre tortura.

"Herr talman! Jag vill gratulera min värderade kollega, Michel Rocard, till hans betänkande. Liksom det betonas i betänkandet är det enda meningsfulla gensvaret i vår önskan om reformer i arabvärlden ett gensvar som omfattar och grundas på gemensamma värderingar – något som alltför ofta går förlorat i talet om kriget mot terrorismen. Vi måste, som flera socialdemokratiska kolleger har sagt, göra verkliga framsteg i fråga om att finna en fredlig och långsiktig lösning på konfliktproblemen, inte minst mellan det israeliska och det palestinska folket. Men jag vill betona det absoluta behovet av att begränsa följderna av allt direkt eller indirekt stöd från EU eller våra medlemsstater för auktoritärt styre i regionen. Förbindelserna mellan europeiska säkerhetstjänster och deras motsvarigheter måste omvärderas, så att dessa byråer fortsätter att samarbeta när det gäller åtgärder mot gemensamma hot, inklusive terrorism, samtidigt som alla åtgärder är otvetydigt förenliga med internationell rätt avseende mänskliga rättigheter, inklusive bestämmelser om tortyr. Det behövs hårdare kontroller av förflyttning av vapen och militär till regionen för att säkerställa att dessa inte används till internt förtryck eller i aggressivt syfte mot ett annat land. I alla gemenskapsprogram för stöd till områden utanför EU behövs vidare omvärdering av tillhandahållande av stöd till länder i regionen för att främja utveckling och ekonomisk rättvisa och för att stödja reformatorerna själva i reformprocessen."@sv22
