Brexit countdown, Brazil forest fires, beating cancer

European parliamentarians have approved a new Brexit resolution, backed by the EPP Group, which supports another extension on certain conditions and opposes a no-deal UK exit from the EU. EPP Group Chairman Manfred Weber, and Brexit Steering Group member Danuta Hubner explain. The MEPs also debated the fires in the Brazilian rainforest, with the EPP Group´s Mairead McGuinness and Christophe Hansen saying international agreements like the planned EU-Mercosur trade accord could help in finding a solution. And Weber underlines the Group´s commitment to find a cure for cancer by combining EU-wide efforts by sharing resources and data.
