Vice President Timmermans of the European Commission has meeting with FUEN

- Press releases

FUEN President Hans Heinrich Hansen and FUEN legal advisor Frank de Boer had the opportunity, thanks to the efforts of Ulrike Rodust MEP, to have a personal meeting with the First Vice President of the European Commission, Mr Frans Timmermans. This made it possible to explain to the Commissioner responsible for fundamental rights in Europe what FUEN is and towards which aims it is working. 

Mr Timmermans showed his understanding for our demand to enshrine minority protection in the structure of the Commission and he promised to explore if and in which way this might be implemented. “I have the impression that we found a partner for dialogue who is willing to solve the minority problems in Europe with profound knowledge and with empathy”, said Hans Heinrich Hansen. “We hope that further dialogue will follow, once an approach to solving these issues will have been elaborated.”
