Parliamentary mandate ends24.6.2014
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.
