On 13 and 14 July, Envoys of the Middle East Quartet met in Amman as part of their regular and direct outreach to Arab states.

Over the two days, the Envoys from the EU, Russia, US and UN met with Jordanian Foreign Minister Nassr Judeh and National Security Adviser Abdullah Wreikat to discuss how to preserve the two-state solution, and how to create conditions that will enable the parties to return to meaningful negotiations.

Le 27 mai, le Nebraska est devenu le dix-neuvième État des États-Unis à abolir la peine de mort.

C'est là une mesure historique qu'ont prise les élus du Nebraska, alors que le mouvement abolitionniste continue de gagner en importance de par le monde.



On 27 May Nebraska became the 19th State in the United States to repeal the death penalty.

This is a historic step by the Nebraska Legislature, while the worldwide movement towards the abolition of capital punishment continues to grow.

The European Union opposes the death penalty and will continue - in all international fora - to promote and support the abolition of such cruel punishment, for the enhancement of human dignity.
