Extracts of the speech at the EDA Annual Conference


Ce qui s'est passé vendredi dernier à Paris laissera des traces dans notre mémoire européenne. Une fois encore, les terroristes ont visé le cœur de l'Europe. (...) Nous savons ce qu'ils cherchent à obtenir. Ils veulent que nous nous lancions des regards empreints de suspicion. Ils veulent que nous ayons peur de ceux qui ont une autre couleur de peau ou qui parlent avec un autre accent. Ils jouent sur nos peurs pour déchirer nos sociétés.


At the Foreign Affairs Council on Monday, the EU adopted its policy framework on support to transitional justice. In doing so, the EU has underlined its commitment to support these processes and has become the first regional organisation to have a dedicated strategy towards transitional justice. The international community must work together to support post-conflict and post-authoritarian societies.

EU High Representative Federica Mogherini today chairs the monthly meeting of EU foreign ministers, which will focus on diplomatic work related to tackling root causes of terrorism, such as the situation in Syria.

A minute of silence was observed in memory of the victims in Paris. During the meeting Ministers also issued statements on the violence in Burundi amongst other subjects.
