"This is the seventeenth report on the further progress made towards building an effective and genuine Security Union. It covers developments under two main pillars: tackling terrorism and organised crime and the means that support them, and strengthening our defences and building resilience against those threats. The European Parliament and the Council made significant progress on a number of legislative priorities over the last months. However, for a large number of important priority files, political agreement is still pending and the co-legislators need to make further efforts. With the next European Parliament elections taking place in May 2019, time is of the essence in order to deliver on the pending priority proposals put forward by the Commission to complete the Security Union, as called for by President Jean-Claude Juncker in his 2018 State of the Union address."
