Good afternoon,

Today, it is 5 years from the tragic events that took place in Brussels. We pay tribute to the victims of these events stressing that terrorism and extremism have no place in our societies.

We have had a long and intense Foreign Affairs Council, in which we took an important decision to promote and protect human rights around the world. 

The Council today decided to impose restrictive measures on eleven individuals and four entities responsible for serious human rights violations and abuses in various countries around the world. Together with the listing of four Russian individuals earlier this month, these 15 designations are part of the first broader package of listings under the EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime. The sanctions signal the EU’s strong determination to stand up for human rights and to take tangible action against those responsible for violations and abuses.

In a more challenging global environment, the EU needs to enhance its ability to prevent confl icts and
strengthen international peace and security. With the new European Peace Facility (EPF), the EU is
taking on more responsibility as a global security provider.
