This morning, the EESC President spoke about the key challenges for 2015 on France 24's "Talking Europe" show. He strongly condemned the recent attacks in Paris and called for unity and solidarity in these troubled times. He also underlined that "95% of the victims of radical Islamism in the world are Muslims" and called for a united Europe to fight this pledge internally and externally in a coordinated way. "Protection is what citizens expect from a political power. It is up to the EU to prove its ability to deliver that protection".
