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.

The Commission, which I represent here today for this matter is, like you, appalled by the findings of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Study of the CIA's Detention and Interrogation Programme, part of which was released on 9 December (most of the inquiry remains classified).

This report raises important questions as regards serious violations of fundamental rights by the US authorities and by other persons at the service of the CIA between late 2001 and January 2009.

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

I was pleased to meet today Kosovo's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Hashim Thaçi for the first time in my new capacity.

We had the opportunity to exchange views on Kosovo's progress. We agreed that, now that there is a new government in Pristina, work should resume at an intensified pace in the EU reform agenda so that good progress can be made in the next year, both in its internal development and in its EU path.

"The almost daily deadly attacks on innocent villagers in north eastern Nigeria are unacceptable. At least 32 people have been killed and more than 185 kidnapped including women and children in the latest brutal assault. 
 
We express our condolences to the families of those killed and we call for an immediate release of those abducted, along with the return of the schoolgirls kidnapped in Chibok eight months ago.

The announcement by the FARC yesterday of an indefinite unilateral ceasefire is a welcome development. Its effective implementation will contribute to the momentum of the Havana negotiations and help build trust between parties and with the Colombian people. We hope the negotiators will now press ahead to reach an early comprehensive agreement, which would open the way to a full armistice.

Les attaques mortelles quasi-quotidiennes perpétrées contre des villageois innocents dans le nord-est du Nigeria sont inacceptables. Au moins 32 personnes ont été tuées et plus de 185 enlevées, dont des femmes et des enfants, lors de la dernière attaque. 

Nous présentons nos condoléances aux familles des victimes et appelons à la libération immédiate des personnes enlevées, ainsi que des écolières kidnappées à Chibok il y a huit mois.

Le cessez-le-feu unilatéral pour une durée indéterminée annoncé hier par les FARC constitue une évolution positive. Son application effective contribuera à faire progresser les négociations de La Havane et à instaurer une relation de confiance entre les parties et avec le peuple colombien. Nous espérons maintenant que les négociateurs poursuivront leur action pour trouver rapidement un accord global ouvrant la voie à un armistice complet.

The EU stands with the Nigerian people in the fight against this violent insurgency, and will continue its support for action against the terrorist threat.
