In the major humanitarian crisis Afghanistan is facing, the EU has launched projects worth €268.3 million, stepping up vital support to the Afghan population. The EU support focusses on maintaining education, sustaining livelihoods, and protecting public health, including for refugees, migrants and internally displaced people. It is channelled through United Nations agencies working in Afghanistan (UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNHCR, WHO, IOM) and benefits the Afghan population directly. Two projects support human rights defenders and Civil Society Organisations.

The EU welcomes the willingness of both Turkey and Armenia to work on the normalisation of relations between the two countries and the appointment of Special Envoys for this purpose.

The first meeting of the Special Envoys this Friday was an important step forward and the European Union encourages both Turkey and Armenia to make further efforts in this regard.

Any further concrete steps towards the normalisation of relations would be good news for regional stability and prospects for reconciliation and economic development.

12/01/2022 – HR/VP Blog – Russia is threatening Ukraine and putting into question Europe’s security architecture. This week in Brest, EU Foreign and Defence Ministers are meeting: we should be united, clear about what we want and, above all, what we intend to do.

The EU condemns the launches of missiles by the DPRK, which occurred most recently on January 5 and 11. The DPRK’s continued pursuit of illegal weapons systems is a threat to international peace and security and goes against international efforts to resume dialogue and engage in actions to help its people. 

The EU calls on the DPRK to comply with its obligations under UN Security Council Resolutions and refrain from all actions that undermine the environment for pursuing diplomacy and dialogue.

Enthusiasm, energy, talent: youth is the backbone of every society, the best of its present and its future. In the last two years, the pandemic has frustrated many youths' ambitions, but young people remain the first source of hope for a better future. That’s why it has been decided to designate 2022 as the European Year of Youth. This means increasing efforts to include youth priorities in relevant EU policy areas and at every level of the EU’s decision-making process, to re-establish a positive outlook for European young people negatively affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

09/01/2021 – HR/VP Blog – On the very first days of the new year, I visited Ukraine to underline the EU’s support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity at a moment when the country is faced with Russia’s military build-up and when Russia is questioning the basic tenets of Europe’s security. The EU will continue to be involved in any discussions that affect our security and nothing could be decided about us, without us.
