The European Union and its Member States have progressively put in place a comprehensive external migration policy and strengthened the work along the Central Mediterranean route. Saving and protecting the lives of migrants and refugees, breaking the business model of smugglers and traffickers and providing legal pathways, while addressing the root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement: these are the aims at the very heart of the EU's policy.

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.

Mr. President,

The EU commends the signing of the Constitutional Declaration Document in Sudan on 17 August, the formation of a new civilian Government, and the start of the transitional process which will hopefully lead Sudan into peaceful, democratic future, with respect and promotion of Human Rights at its core.

EU FUNDING SUPPORTS THE GOVERNMENT OF SUDAN, THE RAPID SUPPORT FORCES OR MILITIAS?
THE EU PAYS FOR TANKS, WEAPONS, HELICOPTERS?
THE EU HAS SUSPENDED PROJECTS IN SUDAN AS FUNDING WAS MISUSED OR GOING TO OPPRESSORS?
THE EU FUNDS SUDAN VIA THE ‘KHARTOUM PROCESS’?
THE EU DOESN’T TAKE HUMAN RIGHTS INTO ACCOUNT?
THE EU DOES NOT MONITOR FUNDING?
THE EU ONLY HAS MIGRATION MANAGEMENT PROJECTS IN SUDAN?

On the occasion of the International Day of Democracy, the European Union reaffirms its commitment towards democracy as a fundamental right of every human being. Every woman and every man has to be free to participate to the political, economic and social life of her or his country. No one should fear to speak up, to demonstrate peacefully, to go to vote or to expect fair and inclusive policies from a government. Democracy can only function if participation and trust between democratic state institutions, governments and citizens are guaranteed.

On this first International Day commemorating the victims of acts of violence based on religion or belief, we pay tribute to all those around the world who lost their lives and suffered attacks because of their religion or belief. Persecution as a response to religious belief or affiliation, or lack thereof, is a violation of international law and requires joint work to combat it.
