Thank you very much. Let me say how glad I am to welcome here today my good friend, Minister of Norway, Minister Brende. We always have good and regular occasions of exchanging on many different foreign affairs issues. And let me say, this is out of the formal context here, that really, in him and in Norway we always find a great partner on the many different challenges we are facing.

A joint op-ed by EU Ambassador Vincent Guérend, Belgian Ambassador Patrick Herman, German Chargé d'Affaires a.i. Thorsten Hutter, British Ambassador Moazzam Malik and Dutch Ambassador Rob Swartbol (published in The Jakarta Post, 18 April 2016)

The Presidential and governmental elections held in February and April 2016 were satisfactory from a technical standpoint, thanks to progressive improvements to electoral administration capacities, despite the incidents that took place on the island of Anjouan. The number of Comorians who voted reflects the fact that democracy is firmly established in the country.

Les élections présidentielles et gouvernementales de février et avril 2016 se sont déroulées de manière satisfaisante sur le plan technique grâce à l'amélioration progressive des capacités de l'administration électorale, en dépit d'incidents sur l'île d'Ànjoûan. La participation en nombre des Comoriens au scrutin reflète l'ancrage démocratique du pays.

Las exportaciones no petroleras de Colombia a la Unión Europea (UE) registraron en 2015 una tendencia positiva al sumar € 5.188 millones, un aumento de un 7,52% con respecto al año anterior, de acuerdo con los datos estadísticos oficiales de la UE. La agricultura, con una tasa de crecimiento de un 20,94% en 2015, fue el sector que más jalonó las exportaciones colombianas a la UE, pasando por primera vez la cifra de € 2 mil millones (€ 2.048 millones).

Let me start by expressing our condolences for the many victims of the earthquake in Ecuador and also in Japan a few days ago. As you know, all our efforts are mobilised to give support to the Ecuadorian authorities in these hours.
 
Let me also say that today is a sad anniversary, because exactly one year ago more than 800 people died in a drowning in the Mediterranean Sea. The work that the European Union is doing on migration will be at the centre of our meeting today - obviously the external part of our work on migration.

We really had an intense day at the Foreign Affairs Council that will now continue also with our Defence Ministers on Libya. I will come to that in a moment.
