Press conference by Julian King, Member of the EC, on the Security union
On 7 September 2017, Julian King, Member of the EC in charge of Security Union, gave a press conference on the Security Union, at the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium. The European Commission reported on actions taken since President Juncker's 2016 State of the Union address to enhance security at the EU external border, improve information exchange between Member States, close down the space in which terrorists operate and prevent radicalisation. A year later, the Commission delivered on all security related priorities set out by President Juncker. This 10th Security Union Progress Report also takes stock of the progress made on other security files and looks ahead to continued work in the next 12 months and beyond.
