European leaders have held a summit in Paris to call for a ‘coordinated and rapid response’ to terrorism following recent attacks in France and Austria.
Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz met with Emmanuel Macron in the Elysee Palace on Tuesday, the eve of the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris that took over 100 lives. Leaders from Germany and the Netherlands joined via video link alongside senior EU officials.
Macron called for the creation of shared databases between police and intelligence agencies across the continent as well as new legislation regarding online terrorist propaganda. While he said that social media is a platform for free speech, it should not be allowed to be used as a vessel for online radicalisation to terrorist causes and that material flagged as terrorism-related content must be removed within one hour. He added that a threat to one member state was a threat to the entire European Union.
