We are united in our deep concern regarding the Lukashenko regime’s continuing attacks on human rights, fundamental freedoms, and international law.

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified human rights and democracy challenges in many parts of the world. That is why the EU has placed human rights front and centre of its foreign policy. This is one of the main features of the freshly adopted 2020 European Union Annual Report on Human Rights and Democracy in the World. While the world is confronted with unique challenges, the EU maintains its leading role in supporting human rights, democracy and rule of law, within its borders and across the globe.

The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will resume on Sunday 20 June in Vienna.

The Joint Commission will be chaired, on behalf of EU High Representative Josep Borrell, by the Deputy Secretary General/Political Director of the European External Action Service, Enrique Mora.

It will be attended by representatives of China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and Iran.


To commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission, Josep Borrell, and Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Sexual Violence in Conflict, Pramila Patten, call for an end to violence in conflict zones and in the private spheres.

No country, no region in the world has been spared from the impact of COVID-19. The virus is exacerbating existing inequalities and has a disproportionate effect on refugees, internally displaced persons, vulnerable migrants and stateless persons. We must all redouble our efforts. As vaccination campaigns are underway in the EU, the EU is working to ensure universal access to COVID-19 vaccines, in particular through the COVAX Facility.

The European Union and the United States represent 780 million people who share democratic values and the largest economic relationship in the world. We have a chance and a responsibility to help people make a living and keep them safe and secure, fight climate change, and stand up for democracy and human rights. We laid the foundations of the world economy and the rules-based international order after World War II based on openness, fair competition, transparency and accountability. Some of the rules need an update: to protect our health, our climate and planet, to ensure democracy delivers and technology improves our lives.

The European Union and the United States are joining forces to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic through vaccine development, supply chain collaboration, and medical device production. Building on the EU’s climate leadership and the US return to the Paris Agreement, transatlantic collaboration is driving forward a global recovery.


The European Union (EU) and the United States (US) represent 780 million people who share democratic values,
as well as a stake in the global rules-based multilateral system. For the last 60 years, the EU and the US have
worked together to promote common values, including peace, freedom, and the rule of law.
