29 September 2020 - Last week, I took part with my colleague Vice-President Dubravka Šuica in an event organised jointly with UNICEF. The aim was to send an SOS to policy-makers around the world, asking them to give highest priority to schools in their plans to reopen their economies. A decisive issue for our common future.

Nations around the world gathered virtually for the 75th General Assembly of the United Nations. This historical gathering comes at a time when we are facing global challenges and global responses are difficult to find. The EU calls for a reform of multilateralism by design and not by destruction: “We must revitalize the system, not abandon it. So, this week and beyond, we will uphold the spirit of the UNGA and defend multilateralism, which all countries so badly need. A world without the UN would endanger us all.” stated High Representative/Vice President Josep Borrell.

22/09/2020 - On Tuesday, I was in Ukraine for my first visit as High Representative. The frontline in eastern Ukraine has been calm for almost two months now, the longest period since the war started. Since 2014, the EU has been the strongest partner of Ukraine. Our support will continue but is also linked to the urgent need to enhance the rule of law and develop the fight against corruption.

22/09/2020 - For weeks, people in Belarus have taken to the streets to protest the fraudulent Presidential elections and the wave of repression that followed. Last Sunday, once again the massive demonstrations were asking for the departure of Lukashenko. During our EU Foreign Ministers meeting we underlined our full support: the future of Belarus must be decided by the people of Belarus and them alone.


22/09/2020 - На протяжении многих недель подряд народ Беларуси выходит на улицы в знак протеста против фальсификации президентских выборов и последовавшей за ними волны репрессий. В минувшее воскресенье массовые демонстрации в очередной раз потребовали ухода Лукашенко. На встрече министров иностранных дел ЕС мы обозначили нашу полную поддержку: будущее Беларуси должно решаться народом Беларуси и только им.

The Heads of Mission of the European Union (EU), EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland issue the following statement in Singapore:
The Heads of Mission call on the Singapore authorities to halt the execution of Moad Fadzir bin Mustaffa, and to commute his sentence to a non-capital sentence.

The world has awakened to a different reality this year: we are facing the most challenging health crisis of our generation. In some parts of the world, the battle goes beyond hospitals and labs. There are those also fighting on the ground with arms. No country can afford two wars at the same time and on the International Day of Peace, the EU echoes the call of the United Nations General Secretary for a global cease-fire.

Die Welt hat sich in diesem Jahr grundlegend verändert: wir stehen vor der größten Gesundheitskrise unserer Generation. In einigen Teilen der Welt findet der Kampf jedoch nicht nur in Krankenhäusern und Laboren statt, sondern es wird auch mit Waffen gekämpft. Kein Land kann es sich erlauben, zwei Kriege zugleich zu führen, und am Internationalen Tag des Friedens schließt sich die EU der Forderung des Generalsekretärs der Vereinten Nationen nach einer weltweiten Waffenruhe an.

El mundo ha despertado a una realidad diferente este año: nos enfrentamos a la crisis sanitaria más difícil de nuestra generación. No obstante, en algunas partes del mundo se libran batallas también fuera de los hospitales y los laboratorios: hay quienes están luchando en campos de batalla y con armas. Ningún país puede permitirse dos guerras al mismo tiempo. Con motivo del Día Internacional de la Paz, la UE se hace eco del llamamiento del secretario general de las Naciones Unidas por un alto el fuego mundial.

Le monde a connu un changement radical cette année: nous sommes confrontés à la crise sanitaire la plus difficile de notre génération. Dans certaines régions du monde, la lutte s'étend au delà des hôpitaux et des laboratoires. Certains combattent également sur le terrain avec des armes. Aucun pays ne peut se permettre de mener deux guerres en même temps et, à l'occasion de la Journée internationale de la paix, l'UE s'associe à l'appel lancé par le secrétaire général des Nations unies en faveur d'un cessez le feu mondial.
