The recent amendments to Nauru's Criminal code abolishing the death penalty and decriminalising homosexuality send a strong signal to other countries in the Pacific region that are yet to do so.

The European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, Neven Mimica, attends the 8th Summit of African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Heads of State and Government in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea from 30 May to 1 June 2016.
Les modifications récemment apportées au code pénal de Nauru pour abolir la peine de mort et dépénaliser l'homosexualité envoient un signal fort aux autres pays du Pacifique qui n'ont pas encore agi sur ces points.
En abolissant la peine de mort, Nauru affiche sa foi, partagée par l'Union européenne et de nombreux autres pays dans le monde, en la dignité inhérente à chaque être humain et en l'inviolabilité de la personne humaine. La peine capitale ne peut se justifier en aucune circonstance.

I would also like to thank the GCC secretariat for the work done in preparation of this Ministerial meeting. And that is really with gratitude that I welcome you here. I am really delighted that you came to Brussels after so many years to co-chair our Ministerial meeting this year. It has been an important meeting.
