Today another Wall has started to fall. President Obama's announcement of important US policy measures towards Cuba heralds a long awaited change in the fraught relations between the Caribbean island nation and its North American neighbour, for which I personally congratulated Secretary of State John Kerry today. The initiative to re-establish diplomatic relations after over half a century of estrangement and the proposals for expanding the possibilities of contact and exchanges between Cubans and Americans are an historical turning point.

Aujourd'hui, un autre Mur a commencé à chuter. L'annonce, par le président Obama, de mesures importantes à l'égard de Cuba préfigure un changement attendu de longue date dans les relations difficiles entre cette nation insulaire des Caraïbes et son voisin nord-américain. À cette occasion, j'ai adressé ce jour-même mes félicitations personnelles au secrétaire d'État, John Kerry.

La décision de rejeter la demande de prolongation du séjour de Massimiliano Latorre en Italie pour traitement médical et de refuser d'accorder à Salvatore Girone la permission de passer la période de Noël chez lui est décevante au vu de l'impossibilité de parvenir au consensus attendu depuis longtemps.

L’attaque perpétrée aujourd’hui contre une école accueillant des enfants de militaires à Peshawar laisse chacun d’entre nous en état de choc. Lorsque des innocents sont tués, que des enfants sont pris pour cible sur leur lieu d’étude, c'est non seulement à des valeurs et des droits universellement reconnus que l'on s'attaque, mais aussi à l'avenir du pays, à l'avenir de tous.

Languages:

The attack today on a military school in Peshawar leaves all of us in shock. When innocents are killed, when children are targeted in their place of study, it is an attack not only on universally recognised values and rights but also on the future of the country, on all our futures. 

I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and my support to the people and the authorities of Pakistan on this tragic day.

EU response to the crisis 
The challenges facing the Central African Republic (CAR) are so complex and interlinked that only a comprehensive approach focused on security, humanitarian aid, stabilisation and development cooperation will help make a difference.  This is the approach favoured by the European Union (EU).
