With European prosperity and Asian peace and security closely connected, the European Union has decided to strengthen its security cooperation in and with Asia. This is also in line with the steps taken by the EU in the past years to strengthen its role as a global security provider: Europe and Asia share a fundamental interest in upholding the rules-based international system, as well as the view that the challenges the world faces today go beyond national borders and cannot be tackled alone. The EU-Asia security partnership is therefore both desirable and necessary.

The European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe firmly oppose the death penalty at all times and in all circumstances. The death penalty is a cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment contrary to the right to life. The death penalty means revenge, not justice, and its abolition contributes to the enhancement of human dignity.

L'Union européenne (UE) et le Conseil de l'Europe s'opposent fermement au recours à la peine de mort en tous temps et en toutes circonstances. La peine de mort est un châtiment cruel, inhumain et dégradant et est contraire au droit à la vie. Elle ne représente pas la justice, mais une vengeance, et son abolition contribue au renforcement de la dignité humaine.

Die Europäische Union (EU) und der Europarat lehnen die Todesstrafe in jedem Fall und unter allen Umständen strikt ab. Die Todesstrafe ist eine grausame, unmenschliche und erniedrigende Bestrafung und läuft dem Recht auf Leben zuwider. Die Todesstrafe bedeutet Rache und nicht Gerechtigkeit, und ihre Abschaffung trägt zur Achtung der Menschenwürde bei.
