The voice of the European Union and its people is heard all around the world. From Asia and the Pacific to Africa, Europe and Central Asia, from the Greater Middle East to the Americas, the European Union’s diplomatic network runs wide and deep to all corners of the globe, making a difference when it comes to human rights, democracy support, migration, development, responding to crises, providing security, contributing to defense and building the resilience and capacities of societies.
139 Delegations represent the EU and its citizens around the globe, building networks and partnerships and promoting the values and interests of the EU. Since the Rome Treaties in 1957, the European Union has enjoyed six decades of unparalleled peace, prosperity and security. European countries living peacefully side-by-side has also contributed to a more peaceful world.
Three years on from the illegal annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation, the European Union remains firmly committed to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity. This is the message of the declaration of the High Representative, Federica Mogherini, made on behalf of the European Union.
