La UE destina 925 millones de Euros a la cooperación regional con América
Latina durante el período 2014-2020.

Palestinian statehood, Georgia's Association Agreement, freedom of expression in Turkey, and the CIA - December's Plenary session of the European Parliament this week featured many important debates on the EU's external relations.

The European Union and its External Action Service played a significant role in 2014 in international efforts to solve major crises in Ukraine, Syria and Iraq, as well as an escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The EU also saw a change of leadership. For the EU's diplomatic service, this saw Federica Mogherini starting her mandate on November 1st as the Union's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice President of the Commission, building on the achievements of former High Representative Catherine Ashton. It has been an eventful and intense year for the EU's external action!

HR/VP Federica Mogherini's agenda this week included chairing the Foreign Affairs Council (FAC) and the EU-Ukraine Association Council, visiting Ukraine, hosting the Eurochanukah event, speaking to CSDP missions and operations and meeting the leadership of both Moldova and Kosovo.

EU High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini held today a video conference with CSDP missions and operations.

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.

L’adoption, ce jour, de la résolution intitulée «Moratoire sur l’application de la peine de mort» par l’Assemblée générale des Nations unies est un signal fort et encourageant pour la cause abolitionniste dans le monde entier. 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.
