I’m delighted to have been elected as the Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Iran Delegation.
This is a worrying time in the Persian Gulf. If we can play a small part in the European Parliament in promoting peace in the region then I think we’ll be doing something very valuable indeed.
If I can play a small part in that I’ll be deeply honoured and very proud to be representing Britain as an MEP taking part in the European Union as a real peace project – not just for peace within our own borders, but around the world.
As part of my role as a Member of the European Parliament, I had the chance to question Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, on the role the EU is playing in trying to resolve conflicts in the region.
