The situation in Belarus has become a matter of grave concern. After last Sunday's Presidential elections, Alexander Lukashenko and the Belarussian authorities must stop the repression against the Belarus people and open negotiations with the wider society. Over the last months, the Belarusians have clearly shown that they long for democracy and respect for human rights. A substantial political change is a precondition for further development of the relations between the EU and Belarus.

As of today, 12 August, some of Cambodia's typical export products such as garments, footwear and travel goods are subject to the European Union's customs duties. The EU's decision to partially withdraw Cambodia's duty-free quota-free access to the EU market is now effective. The preferential treatment enjoyed by Cambodia under “Everything But Arms” (EBA) – the EU's trade arrangement for Least Developed Countries – is now temporarily lifted due to serious and systematic concerns related to human rights ascertained in the country. The EU enforces this measure while staying open to engage with Cambodia on the necessary reforms.

The aspirations of young people around the world need to be at the core of our political, social and economic development debate. Protecting and fighting for youths’ equal rights, particularly in developing regions, contributes to a fairer and more sustainable development. On the International Youth Day, the EU highlights the importance of giving voice to the young people and empowering them to better address the challenges of the future.

The devastating explosions that hit Beirut last week killed and injured numerous people and have destroyed major parts of the city and the livelihood of many of its inhabitants. The international community, and in the first place the European Union and its Member States, has reacted quickly to mitigate the immense damage and suffering caused. However, as it is often the case when such disasters happen, the most important and difficult steps lie ahead: what thousands of Lebanese citizens are asking for is to tackle deeper-rooted problems. As a long-time friend of Lebanon, the EU will stand by their sides in their efforts to build a more prosperous and democratic Lebanon.  We owe it to the victims of August 4th.

As we mark the International day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, the EU extends its solidarity to all indigenous peoples around the world at a time when their health, lives and livelihoods are endangered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ogni giorno assistiamo a un inasprimento delle tensioni tra Stati Uniti e Cina, con scontri su vari fronti. Le posizioni si irrigidiscono ed aumentano i fautori di una dissociazione, sia a Washington sia a Pechino. Tale rivalità strategica tra Stati Uniti e Cina sarà probabilmente il principio organizzativo dominante della politica mondiale, indipendentemente da chi uscirà vincitore dalle prossime elezioni presidenziali negli Stati Uniti. In tale contesto, dobbiamo mantenere i nervi saldi e strutturare l'approccio dell'UE. A questo proposito vorrei analizzare qui alcuni principi che dovrebbero guidarci.

Todos os dias assistimos a um agravamento das tensões entre os EUA e a China, com antagonismos em diversas questões. As posições estão a endurecer e aumentam os defensores de um distanciamento, tanto em Washington como em Pequim. Esta rivalidade estratégica entre os EUA e a China será provavelmente o princípio organizador dominante da política mundial, independentemente de quem vencer as próximas eleições presidenciais nos EUA. Neste contexto, temos de nos manter firmes e de definir  uma abordagem própria da UE. Gostaria de refletir aqui sobre alguns princípios que nos deverão nortear.

Jeden Tag erleben wir eine Verschärfung der Spannungen zwischen den USA und China mit gegensätzlichen Positionen bei einer Reihe von Fragen. Die Positionen verhärten sich, während die Befürworter einer Entkopplung sowohl in Washington als auch in Peking an Vormachtstellung gewinnen. Diese strategische Rivalität zwischen den USA und China wird wahrscheinlich das vorherrschende Organisationsprinzip für die Weltpolitik sein, unabhängig davon, wer die nächsten Präsidentschaftswahlen in den USA gewinnt. Vor diesem Hintergrund müssen wir Nervenstärke beweisen und unseren eigenen EU-Ansatz verfolgen. Ich möchte hier Gedanken über einige Grundsätze ausführen, die uns leiten sollten.
