Parliamentary mandate ends

24.6.2014

My mandate in the European Parliament comes to an end on July 1st 2014.

Nuclear disarmament will be the focus of my work also in the future. I continue as a member of the European Leadership Network/Taskforce on Russia, working on both nuclear disarmament and missile defenses.

As a member of the Council of the Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, I will also in the future promote nuclear- weapon- free zones, particularly in the Middle East.

During my period in the Euorpean Parliament, I was the Chair of the Iran delegation, leading a parliamentary delegation to Iran in December 2013, the first in six years. My work with Iran continues with writing a book on the Iranian nuclear issue seen from the European Union perspective.

I continue as a Chair of the Finnish Peace Union and also as a member the Board of the International Peace Bureau.
