Expressing one’s faith should not be accompanied by acts of violence in any part of the world. Intolerance towards different religions or faiths still drives to conflict, violating Human Rights. On the International Day commemorating the Victims of Acts of Violence Based on Religion or Belief, the EU pays tribute to all the victims.

Nulle part dans le monde, l’expression de sa foi ne devrait donner lieu à des actes de violence. L’intolérance à l’égard de différentes religions ou croyances entraîne encore des conflits, en violation des droits de l’homme. En cette Journée internationale de commémoration des personnes victimes de violences en raison de leur religion ou de leurs convictions, l’UE rend hommage à toutes les victimes.

21/08/2020 - Last Monday I opened the Summer University of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Palacio in Santander (Spain). We mostly discussed the consequences of the current crisis for Europe and the world. At this stage, the risk seems serious that it destabilises many developing countries and strengthens a trend towards authoritarian regimes. In this context, Europe has a key responsibility to defend effective multilateralism and help developing countries in need.

13/08/2020 - 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.

Ситуация в Беларуси стала предметом глубокой обеспокоенности. В контексте состоявшихся в прошлое воскресенье президентских выборов Александр Лукашенко и власти Беларуси должны прекратить репрессии против белорусского народа и начать переговоры с широкой общественностью. За последние месяцы белорусы ясно показали, что они жаждут демократии и уважения прав человека. Существенное политическое изменение является предпосылкой для дальнейшего развития отношений между ЕС и Беларусью.

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.

10/08/2020 - 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.

10/08/2020 - Las explosiones devastadoras que se produjeron en Beirut la semana pasada causaron numerosas muertes, dejaron aún más heridos, destruyeron partes importantes de la ciudad y acabaron con el sustento de muchos de sus habitantes. La comunidad internacional y, a la vanguardia, la Unión Europea y sus Estados miembros han reaccionado con rapidez con el fin de minimizar los enormes daños y paliar todo el sufrimiento sobrevenido. Sin embargo, como suele ocurrir cuando se producen catástrofes de tal magnitud, la parte más importante y difícil comienza ahora: lo que piden miles de ciudadanos libaneses es que se solucionen problemas muy arraigados. Como socia de larga data del Líbano, la UE colaborará con ellos en la creación de un Líbano más próspero y democrático. Se lo debemos a las víctimas del 4 de agosto.

10/08/2020 - Les explosions dévastatrices survenues à Beyrouth la semaine dernière ont tué et blessé de nombreuses personnes. Elles ont également détruit une grande partie de la ville et, par conséquent, les moyens de subsistance de bon nombre de ses habitants. La communauté internationale, menée par l’Union européenne et ses États membres, est intervenue rapidement pour atténuer les souffrances et les dégâts considérables qui ont été causés. Néanmoins, comme tel est souvent le cas lorsque des catastrophes de cette ampleur se produisent, les défis les plus importants et les plus difficiles sont encore à venir: des milliers de Libanais exigent des solutions à des problèmes plus profondément enracinés. En tant qu’amie de longue date du Liban, l’Union européenne se tiendra à ses côtés et l’aidera à construire un pays plus prospère et plus démocratique. Nous le devons aux victimes du 4 août.
