Thank you very much Lubomir. 

Well, first of all it is really a pleasure for me to have my first visit within the European Union of 2016 here in Prague and to find you in good health. 

The attack on an MSF health centre in Razeh district, northern Yemen, which resulted in several casualties and many wounded today is unacceptable. Our thoughts and condolences are with the families and colleagues of those affected at this time.

This tragic incident is the latest of a series of attacks on medical facilities and medical personnel recorded in Yemen since the start of the conflict. Such attacks that target humanitarian operations and civilians are clearly prohibited under International Humanitarian Law (IHL).

Participation of ENP partners in EU programmes and agencies is a mean to promote reform and modernisation in the EU’s neighbourhood and strengthen administrative and regulatory convergence of partner countries with the EU.


While the talks held in Vienna and New York in recent months are expected to launch the peace process for Syria, the humanitarian situation in the country remains dramatic: civilian populations are under siege in many areas and are being forced to live in appalling conditions with no access to food supplies or aid.

Alors que les pourparlers menés ces derniers mois à Vienne et à New York devraient déboucher sur l'amorce du processus de paix en Syrie, la situation humanitaire dans le pays reste dramatique: les populations civiles sont assiégées dans de nombreuses zones et doivent vivre dans des conditions effroyables, sans accès aux denrées alimentaires ni à l'aide humanitaire.

It is very important for me to be here today, meeting again my friends, and it is especially an honour for me to be the first of the international partners to meet with the Presidency Council.

It is particularly important to do so in a day of mourning the victims of yesterday's attack in Zliten and before in Sidra.

High Representative Federica Mogherini today became the first international figure to meet with the new Libyan Presidency Council, led by designated prime minister Fayez al Serraj.
