Holanda, primer país de la UE en prohibir la venta de armas a Arabia Saudí

Dutch lawmakers have voted to ban weapons exports to Saudi Arabia over the kingdom’s violations of humanitarian law, making the Netherlands the first country in the European Union (EU) to follow through on a motion by the European Parliament in February.

The landmark resolution, approved on Tuesday, asks the Dutch government to impose a full arms embargo on Saudi Arabia, including dual-use exports that could be used to violate human rights. The bill cites United Nations figures that Saudi-led troops have killed nearly 6,000 people in Yemen—half of them civilians.

The bill also noted the Saudi government’s ongoing executions of its own citizens, many of them political dissidents.

The parliamentary vote puts additional pressure on other EU governments, such as Britain and France—Saudi Arabia’s core suppliers of weapons, in addition to the U.S.—to enact a similar ban. According to the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT), the UK has sold about $9.4 billion (£6.7 billion) in weapons to the Saudi government under Prime Minister David Cameron’s administration.

También el Parlamento Europeo definió los asesinatos del ISIS como "genocidio" en el Pleno de febrero.

Austria, Bulgaria, Chipre, Francia, Hungría y España pueden tumbar hoy el acuerdo UE-Turquía en la cumbre de los 28

An EU-Turkey migration proposal presented to European leaders this month proved controversial from the start, and opposition only continues to grow.

The list of complaints is long: German Chancellor Angela Merkel sprung the plan on countries at the last minute; Ankara ambushed the process with more and more demands in exchange for stopping migrants crossing to Greece; and Turkey can’t be trusted to respect human rights of refugees returned there.

Under the framework sketched out at the summit two weeks ago, Ankara would agree to take back migrants who illegally reach Greek shores. In return, Turkey would receive more EU cash (€3 billion on top of an already pledged €3 billion), plus promises to lift visa restrictions for Turks traveling to Europe and speed up talks on Turkey’s membership in the bloc. The deal would also require the resettlement of one Syrian citizen in Europe for every Syrian taken back by Turkey.

Here are six countries that could derail the deal when EU leaders meet again Thursday:
