Madam President, Honourable Members of the European Parliament,

Elections took place in Uganda in January and President [of Uganda, Yoweri] Museveni, in power – and as it has been recalled – since 1986, was re-elected for a 6th term. The main political opponent Bobi Wine [Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu], announced with 35% of the vote, is challenging these results at the Supreme Court.

Ms President, Honourable Members [of the European Parliament],

In March 2020, the EU-Kazakhstan Enhanced Partnership and Cooperation Agreement entered into force, providing us with a framework for advancing cooperation on human rights, the rule of law, and with civil society.

Today, the EU in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO) launched a new regional programme worth over €40 million to provide critical assistance to ensure local readiness and preparedness for safe and effective vaccination of the population in the six Eastern Partnership countries.

The EU welcomes today’s swearing-in of the renewed Council of Ministers and the Sovereign Council, as stipulated by the Juba Peace Agreement.
