June 22, 2017
“(…) the European Council agreed to deepen our efforts against foreign terrorist fighters. We want to finalise works on the new border information sharing systems this year. The European Council have also agreed on the need to cooperate closely with the online industry. We are calling on social media companies to do whatever is necessary to prevent the spread of terrorist material on the internet. In practice, this means developing new tools to detect and remove such materials automatically. And, if need be, we are also ready to adopt relevant legislation.”, said President Donald Tusk in his remarks following the Summit. The heads of states adopted Conclusions on Security and Defence, which will contribute to further commitment to strive toward more efficient cooperation, incl. with EU neighbourhood.
