Plusieurs attentats, qui ont frappé différents endroits de Bagdad aujourd'hui et ont visé délibérément des civils, ont fait de nombreux morts et davantage encore de blessés. Nos pensées vont aux victimes et à leurs familles.

These tragic events underline the fragility of the security situation in Iraq. The EU will spare no efforts to support the Iraqi government in its fight against terrorism and its quest for peace and stability for all the Iraqi people.

Check against delivery.

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.
