"We strongly condemn the recent execution of Aliaksandr Hrunou, who was sentenced to death by the Supreme Court of Belarus in April 2014. This is the third execution to take place in Belarus this year.

We are conscious of the serious nature of the crimes for which Mr Hrunou was convicted. Nevertheless, the European Union opposes capital punishment as it cannot be justified under any circumstances. The death penalty is a cruel and inhumane punishment, which fails to act as a deterrent and represents an unacceptable denial of human dignity and integrity.

"We are closely following judicial proceedings in Bangladesh. The European Union reiterates its strong and absolute opposition to capital punishment in all cases and under all circumstances. We consider the death penalty to be a cruel and inhumane punishment, which is not a deterrent to criminal behaviour and which represents an unacceptable denial of human dignity. With capital punishment any miscarriage of justice – which can happen in any legal system – is irreversible.

"Today's terrorist attack in East Jerusalem is further painful evidence of the need to undertake serious efforts towards a sustainable peace agreement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We express our heartfelt condolences to the victim's family. I expect all parties to act responsibly and show restraint, to not further inflame the already very tense situation. This is the only way to defeat the enemies of peace and guarantee security to all."
