The European Union (EU) is an economic and political partnership between 27 European countries. It plays an important role in international affairs through diplomacy, trade, development aid and working with global organisations. Abroad, the EU is represented through more than 140 diplomatic representations, known also as EU Delegations, which have a similar function to those of an embassy.
The EU Delegation in Brasilia represents the European Union in the Federal Republic of Brazil, working in close coordination with the Embassies of the EU Member States.
يمثل الإفراج عن المعتقلين من قبل الأطراف اليمنية في 15 و16 أكتوبر، وفقا للاتفاق الذي تم التوصل إليه في 27 سبتمبر في جنيف، خطوة أساسية في تنفيذ اتفاق ستوكهولم الموقع في ديسمبر 2018. كما يُعد هذا تذكير لنا جميعا بأنه لايزال بالإمكان إحراز تقدم من خلال التفاوض والتسويات.
The release of detainees by the Yemeni parties on 15 and 16 October, in line with the agreement reached in Geneva last month, is a crucial step in the implementation of the 2018 Stockholm Agreement. It is also a reminder that progress can still be made through negotiation and compromise.
The European Union commends the work carried out by the International Committee of the Red Cross as well as the UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths and his office for facilitating the release of the detainees and their reunification with their families.
