Cette journée vient nous rappeler avec force la responsabilité que nous avons à l'égard de ceux qui choisissent d'affronter les difficultés liées au déracinement – souvent dû à des conflits et à la pauvreté – et qui luttent pour leur survie dans l'espoir de construire une nouvelle vie ailleurs.

La migration est un phénomène comportant de multiples facettes. Nous devons nous attaquer à ses causes profondes que sont l’instabilité économique et politique, les violations des droits de l’homme, l’insécurité, le chômage, les crises humanitaires ou les catastrophes naturelles.

I just came back yesterday night from Kyiv. It will be a good opportunity today to brief the European Council. We will discuss Ukraine, first of all the need to support the reform agenda in Ukraine. I think that it's time for the European Union to concentrate on making Ukraine a success and this is something that will require work both in Kyiv and in Brussels. And also as President Tusk has said, I think a few minutes ago coming in, the need for us to develop a sound, responsible strategy with Russia.

Today's adoption of the resolution "moratorium on the use of death penalty" by the UN General Assembly is a great and encouraging achievement for the abolitionist cause worldwide. The record number of 117 votes in favour clearly shows that consensus is growing within the international community.

The EU, together with all partners, governmental and non governmental, will spare no efforts and will continue to strive for the abolition of this cruel form of punishment.

Le nombre record de 117 voix en faveur de la résolution montre clairement qu’un consensus se développe au sein de la communauté internationale.

L’UE, en coopération avec l’ensemble de ses partenaires, tant gouvernementaux que non gouvernementaux, ne ménagera pas ses efforts et continuera d’œuvrer en faveur de l’abolition de cette forme cruelle de punition.

The Commission, which I represent here today for this matter is, like you, appalled by the findings of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Study of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Programme, part of which was released on 9 December (most of the inquiry remains classified).

This report raises important questions as regards serious violations of fundamental rights by the US authorities and by other persons at the service of the CIA between late 2001 and January 2009.

I was pleased to meet today Kosovo's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Hashim Thaçi for the first time in my new capacity.

We had the opportunity to exchange views on Kosovo's progress. We agreed that, now that there is a new government in Pristina, work should resume at an intensified pace in the EU reform agenda so that good progress can be made in the next year, both in its internal development and in its EU path.
