Today, we held the second high-level meeting of the EU-facilitated Dialogue after resumption, in person, in Brussels

I thank both parties for coming to Brussels and for their engagement today.

Today’s discussions focused on two elements:

The first element discussed was missing persons and displaced persons.

16/07/2020 - On Wednesday, I participated, together with Presidents Charles Michel and Ursula von der Leyen, in the 15th EU-India Summit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi via VTC. The Summit was originally supposed to take place in person, in Brussels, back in March. Now, 4 months on, the context in which we held the Summit has vastly changed: the covid-19 pandemic has affected us all. We live in a world increasingly dominated by the strategic rivalry between China and the United States where multilateralism is under siege. We have often stressed that, in this context, Europe must go its own way and be at the forefront of those who want not only to save multilateralism but to strengthen it. 

16/07/2020 - Mercredi, j'ai participé, avec les présidents Charles Michel et Ursula von der Leyen, au 15e sommet UE Inde avec le Premier ministre indien Narendra Modi, par vidéoconférence. Le Sommet devait initialement avoir lieu en face à face à Bruxelles, en mars dernier. Aujourd'hui, quatre mois plus tard, le contexte dans lequel nous avons tenu ce sommet a considérablement évolué: nous avons tous été touchés par la pandémie de COVID 19. Le monde dans lequel nous vivons est de plus en plus dominé par la rivalité stratégique entre la Chine et les États Unis et voit le multilatéralisme mis à mal. Nous avons souvent souligné que, dans ce contexte, l'Europe doit suivre son propre chemin et être au premier rang de ceux qui veulent non seulement sauver le multilatéralisme mais également le renforcer.

16/07/2020 - Am Mittwoch habe ich gemeinsam mit Präsident Charles Michel und Präsidentin Ursula von der Leyen am 15. Gipfeltreffen EU-Indien mit dem indischen Premierminister Narendra Modi teilgenommen, das in Form einer Videokonferenz durchgeführt wurde. Der Gipfel hätte ursprünglich im März als Präsenztagung in Brüssel stattfinden sollen. Nun – vier Monate später – hat sich der Kontext, in dem wir den Gipfel abgehalten haben, stark verändert: Die COVID 19-Pandemie hat uns alle getroffen. Wir leben in einer Welt, die zunehmend von der strategischen Rivalität zwischen China und den Vereinigten Staaten beherrscht wird und in der der Multilateralismus bedroht ist. Wir haben häufig darauf hingewiesen, dass Europa vor diesem Hintergrund seinen eigenen Weg gehen und unter denen, die den Multilateralismus nicht nur retten, sondern auch stärken wollen, eine Vorreiterrolle einnehmen muss.

16/07/2020 - El miércoles participé junto con el presidente Charles Michel y la presidenta Ursula von der Leyen en la 15.ª Cumbre UE-India, por videoconferencia, con el primer ministro de la India, Narendra Modi. En un principio, estaba previsto celebrar la cumbre en formato presencial en el mes de marzo en Bruselas; sin embargo, el contexto en el que celebramos la cumbre hoy, cuatro meses después, es completamente distinto: la pandemia de COVID-19 nos ha afectado a todos. Vivimos en un mundo cada vez más marcado por la rivalidad estratégica entre China y los Estados Unidos, un mundo en el que el multilateralismo se encuentra amenazado. Hemos destacado a menudo que, en este contexto, Europa debe trazar su propio camino y estar a la vanguardia de aquellos que quieren no solo salvar el multilateralismo, sino reforzarlo.

16/07/2020 - Mercoledì ho partecipato in videoconferenza, assieme ai presidenti Charles Michel e Ursula von der Leyen, al 15o vertice UE-India con il primo ministro indiano Narendra Modi. Inizialmente il vertice si sarebbe dovuto svolgere in presenza a Bruxelles lo scorso marzo. Ora, a quattro mesi di distanza, il contesto in cui abbiamo tenuto il vertice è profondamente mutato: la pandemia di COVID-19 ha colpito tutti noi. Viviamo in un mondo sempre più dominato dalla rivalità strategica tra Cina e Stati Uniti, che vede il multilateralismo sotto assedio. Abbiamo spesso sottolineato, a questo proposito, che l'Europa deve seguire il proprio cammino ed essere in prima linea tra coloro che vogliono non solo salvare, ma anche rafforzare il multilateralismo.

16/07/2020 - Na quarta-feira, participei, por videoconferência, na companhia do presidente Charles Michel e da presidente Ursula von der Leyen, na 15.ª Cimeira UE-Índia com o primeiro-ministro indiano, Narendra Modi. De início, estava previsto que a Cimeira tivesse lugar presencialmente, em Bruxelas, no passado mês de março. Agora, quatro meses depois, o contexto em que se realizou foi bastante diferente: a pandemia de Covid-19 afetou-nos a todos. Vivemos num mundo cada vez mais dominado pela rivalidade estratégica entre a China e os Estados Unidos, de que o multilateralismo se encontra refém. Sublinhámos muitas vezes já que, neste contexto, a Europa tem de trilhar o seu próprio caminho, seguindo à frente daqueles que querem não só salvar o multilateralismo, mas reforçá-lo.

I am very happy to address you only four days after our first high-level meeting of the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue.

Sunday’s meeting was the first one after a break of 20 months. A long time. I am glad to see that the European Union is back in the driver’s seat of the process.

We just concluded the virtual meeting with President [of Serbia Aleksandar] Vučić and Prime Minister [of Kosovo] Avdullah Hoti. I’m glad to say that after the Paris Summit [last Friday] and today’s meeting, the EU-facilitated Dialogue on comprehensive normalisations of relations between Serbia and Kosovo is back on track after 20 months.

I am glad that we are resuming the Belgrade Pristina Dialogue by videoconference, given the circumstances, and I welcome the commitment of both parties. Our aim is clear: to restart serious and intense work on the normalisation of the relations between the two sides.

Today, I’m accompanied by EU Special Representative [for the Dialogue and other Western Balkan regional issues] Miroslav Lajčák.
