03/04/2021 – HR/VP Blog - The humanitarian situation in the Ethiopian Tigray region remains very serious. This conflict threatens also to destabilise the whole Horn of Africa. I have asked Pekka Haavisto, Finnish Minister of Foreign Affairs, to travel to Ethiopia to repeat our requests to the government and assess the situation. For the EU, helping to stop the human right abuses in the Tigray region and restore peace in Ethiopia is a high priority.

31/03/2021 – Blog du HR/VP – Le conflit en Syrie fait rage depuis dix ans et la fin n’est toujours pas en vue. C’est pourquoi nous devons continuer de mobiliser le soutien international en faveur du peuple syrien. Nous y sommes parvenus avec la cinquième conférence de Bruxelles sur l’avenir de la Syrie et des pays de la région, qui a mobilisé 5,3 milliards d’euros de nouveaux engagements. Nous devons toutefois également renouveler la recherche d’une solution politique à la crise.

31/03/2021 – مدونة الممثل الأعلى/نائب الرئيس- لقد عاث الصراع في سوريا الدمار لمدة عشر سنوات وما زال مستمراً. لهذا السبب يجب أن نستمر في حشد الدعم الدولي للشعب السوري. وقد حققنا ذلك من خلال "مؤتمر بروكسل الخامس حول مستقبل سوريا والمنطقة" هذا الأسبوع - حيث حصلنا على 5.3 مليار يورو من التعهدات الجديدة. لكننا نحتاج أيضًا إلى تجديد البحث عن حل سياسي للأزمة.


31/03/2021 – HR/VP Blog – The Syria conflict has wreaked havoc for ten years and it is still going on. That is why we must continue to mobilise international support for the Syrian people. We achieved this with the Fifth “Brussels Conference on the future of Syria and the region” this week – generating € 5,3 billion of new pledges. But we also need to renew the search for a political solution to the crisis.

26/03/2021 – HR/VP Blog – Despite initial setbacks, the EU is working hard to accelerate the internal roll out of COVID-19 vaccines. At the same time, we are already contributing in a very significant way to the global vaccination drive via exports and the international COVAX facility.

The Council today decided to impose restrictive measures on eleven individuals and four entities responsible for serious human rights violations and abuses in various countries around the world. Together with the listing of four Russian individuals earlier this month, these 15 designations are part of the first broader package of listings under the EU Global Human Rights Sanctions Regime. The sanctions signal the EU’s strong determination to stand up for human rights and to take tangible action against those responsible for violations and abuses.


Сегодня Совет ЕС принял решение о введении ограничительных мер в отношении одиннадцати физических и четырех юридических лиц, несущих ответственность за серьезные нарушения и злоупотребления в области прав человека в различных странах мира. Вместе с четырьмя россиянами, внесенными в перечень ранее в этом месяце, данные 15 лиц составляют первый расширенный перечень лиц, в отношении которых введены санкции в рамках Общего режима санкций ЕС за нарушения прав человека. Санкции свидетельствуют о твердой решимости ЕС защищать права человека и предпринимать конкретные меры в отношении тех, кто ответственен за нарушения и злоупотребления.


As of today the EU is equipped with a new financial instrument that will cover all its external actions that have military or defence implications under the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP).

In a more challenging global environment, the EU needs to enhance its ability to prevent confl icts and
strengthen international peace and security. With the new European Peace Facility (EPF), the EU is
taking on more responsibility as a global security provider.
