The "Agreement for social peace and a new Constitution", reached by a broad majority of the Chilean political parties, represents a strong commitment to respond to citizens' demands following the unprecedented protests in the country. 


This historic and welcome step should now be used to foster unity amongst all Chileans, enhance dialogue over the future of the country, focus on a reform agenda that can bring about a more inclusive social contract and end all forms of violence.


As a long-standing partner of Chile, the European Union stands ready to support the country and its people in this crucial moment of its democratic history.
