“The European Commission must act for legally-binding recognition of Christian genocide in Middle East in UN Security Council,” says Lars Adaktusson, Swedish centre-right (EPP) MEP during the debate at the European Parliament debate on the situation of Christians in Middle East.
“Efforts for legal action against the perpetrators must be intensified. Respect for freedom of religion must be a top priority. Middle East governments, terrorist groups, should always know that violation of the universal right to believe and worship will be punished. Justice will prevail!” he concluded.
Previously, the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy Federica Mogherini said: “Christianity was born in Middle East, it belongs to Middle East!”
