I congratulate Tunisia's new Prime Minister, Habib Essid, and his government on the vote of confidence which they obtained today in the Assembly of the Representatives of the People. 

The new Tunisian authorities have a historic responsibility to consolidate the significant democratic progress that has been made, to tackle the many social and economic challenges facing the country and to ensure the security of all Tunisians. 


"Je félicite le nouveau Premier ministre tunisien Habib Essid et l’ensemble de son gouvernement pour le vote de confiance qu’ils ont obtenu aujourd’hui à l’Assemblée des Représentants du Peuple. 


Les nouvelles autorités tunisiennes ont une responsabilité historique, celle de consolider les remarquables progrès démocratiques, d’affronter les nombreux défis socio-économiques du pays, ainsi que d’assurer la sécurité de tous les Tunisiens. 



This Local EU Statement marks the First Anniversary of the adoption of the Iraqi National Action Plan for the implementation of the UN Security Council resolution 1325 on women, peace and security.


The European Union supports all the initiatives aimed at bringing political solution to the ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine; the efforts of Chancellor Angela Merkel and President François Hollande, and the visits to Kyiv and Moscow they just announced, are clearly going in this direction.

The European Union is united in using all the means available to push for a political solution, by applying pressure as well as continuing dialogue.
