Switzerland and EU: With a statement from the cul-de-SAC

With a joint statement, want to enter the Swiss and EU parliamentarians, the relationship between Switzerland and the EU a new impetus. They appeal therein, to the Federal Parliament, to meet at the cohesion of a billion to a positive decision "without further delay".

Because the Parliament is to advise in the winter session of the last differences to the cohesion of a billion and in the final vote on it. Expected: 3. December will be the first to advise the national Council about it. Both councils are agreed that Switzerland should only have to pay a further cohesion billion to the EU, if these are dispensed with discriminatory measures. Otherwise, should enter the Federal Council has no obligations.

With discriminatory measures will probably be meant first and foremost the recognition of Equivalence by the EU for the Swiss stock exchange, which the EU Commission by mid-year, leak had.

Brussels must rethink

In turn, call on the Swiss and EU parliamentarians and the EU Commission to reconsider its decision not to extend the exchange of equivalence. This is clear from Thomas Aeschi (SVP/ZG) on Wednesday after a parliamentary Meeting in Strasbourg on the short message service Twitter in the widespread joint statement.

In the Declaration are also recognized by both sides, "the peculiarities of the Swiss labour market". There is a need for "necessary measures to maintain employment and good wage conditions in Switzerland and in the EU", it means more. But at the same time they point out that the framework needed to have agreement on the goal, "to ensure the homogeneity of the EU internal market and legal certainty".

Fast ambiguity dispel

In its statement, the MPs are now demanding from the Federal Council and the EU Commission, to define the remaining open issues with the goal of some in the coming months. We hope the MEPs write that "after more than four years of negotiations and 32 formal rounds of negotiations, the institutional framework of the agreement" as quickly as possible signed.

Because the members of Parliament on both sides are concerned about a threat of a downward spiral. A Failure of the framework agreement would lead with high probability "to an Erosion of bilateral relations" and "could endanger, therefore, the legal security as well as economic dynamism," write the politicians.

broad acceptance needed

Therefore, you ask the two negotiating parties to a consensus-oriented approach. In its Declaration, it means that the by the Federal Council in the letter to the EU Commission requested clarifications would help "to ensure a wide acceptance and majority support for the agreement in Switzerland". In addition, many reservations can all, "" against the framework agreement in Switzerland in the consultation between January and may be clarified.

under the Declaration of the presidents of the two delegations on the EU side, by Andreas Schwab (EPP) and on the Swiss side Hans – Peter Portmann (FDP/ZH), was signed. In addition, all members of the delegations were able to the explanation of volunteer sign.

SVP national Council Aeschi rejects the Declaration, as he notes on Twitter.
