The European Union Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella, who is visiting Kenya from 25th-27 May 2016 to participate in the second session of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA 2) today visited the Ivory Burning site at the Nairobi National Park, where he met Dr Richard Leakey, Chairman of the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS).
It is a pleasure to be here today to open the second High Level Dialogue on Security and Justice. Five years have passed since the first round – and these have not been easy years for the security of many Mexicans and Europeans.
24.05.2016 Muchas gracias, Alicia [Ruiz Massieu], por haber invitado a la Unión Europea y a mí personalmente a este acto. Acabo de llegar a México y es un placer comenzar mi visita con tantos amigos aquí y tener la oportunidad de dirigirme no solo a una audiencia mexicana, sino a toda América Latina y el Caribe. We first met in Santiago less than two years ago. I visited the headquarters of Celac and addressed a speech on EU- Latin America, during the Italian presidency of the EU.
